Kate Middleton was picture-perfect as she stepped out with Prince William today for their first official royal engagement.

The soon-to-be-married couple visited an RNLI lifeboat station for a service of dedication in Trearddur Bay in Anglesey, North Wales.

And Kate donned a chocolate-trimmed camel coat, with matching tights and black ankle boots, all topped off with a gorgeous fascinator by Philip Treacy, the man she's asked to create headwear for the royal wedding party.

While Kate cracked open a bottle of bubbles on the bow of a new inflatable boat, Prince William addressed the 2,000-strong crowd, and paid tribute to the rescuers working in Christchurch, New Zealand, helping to clear up after the tragic earthquake.

The pair looked totally relaxed on the podium together, as well as when they were mixing with the crowd. Don't they make a gorgeous couple?
