Prince William and Kate Middleton surprised the citizens of Belfast today with an impromptu visit.

And, to celebrate Shrove Tuesday, Kate even showed off her pancake flipping skills.

The royal couple are touring Britain in the lead-up to their 29 April wedding. They were met at the George Best City Airport by Lord Mayor Pat Convery and Dame Mary Peters, a former Olympic pentathlon athletics champion who is now the Lord Lieutenant of Belfast.

They pair then made their way to the City Hall in an eight-car cavalcade.

Kate adopted a more fashionable look for their first trip to Northern Ireland by donning a gorgeous Burberry trench coat, which she teamed with opaque tights and black suede heels.

News also emerged recently that the princess-to-be might be turning to edgy Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton to create her wedding dress.

It won't be long before we find out now!
