Prince William praised Welsh dairy farmers as “seriously heavy” after he had spent the week with his family in Norfolk.
Speaking in Cardiff prior to the Six Nations clash this afternoon against France, the Duke revealed how George enjoyed the experience, Charlotte was initially reluctant and Louis “loved the tractors.”
The royal was depicted cheering with the crowd packed at the Principality Stadium, where Les Blues won a four-point victory.
Before the game, William performed his duties as patron of the Welsh Rugby Union and met injured players such as Rhian Roberts, 34.

Mrs. Roberts, a primary school teacher, told William that she was married in a dairy family in West Wales.
She was supported by the confidence after having suffered damage to her neck during a tackle in March 2018.
“We’ve been having fun with the kids this week,” William told Mrs. Roberts, who played club Y Piod Pinc for two seasons.
“Charlotte wasn’t sure at first, but George was there right away. Louis loves the tractors.
‘They like to see the lambs and feed the lambs. Dairy farming – you are all seriously heavy. “
Mrs. Roberts, who met William for the first time, described him as “down to earth” and said that he was really interested in agriculture.
“We were talking about the country where he was and the country where we are, which is a mining area,” she said.
“He said they have been lighting in Norfolk this week. They want the children to see the rural way of life and the urban way of life. “

Mrs. Roberts, who joined the trust last year, said she felt she had “gained an extra family.”
The Trust was established in 1972 as an organization with a range of educational, social and sporting objectives.
The main goal is to support those who were seriously injured while playing in Wales, as well as their families.
William also spoke with Simon Hart, the Secretary of State for Wales, and asked if he had been with his father Prince Charles on Friday.
Charles visited Pontypridd and met residents and businesses affected by floods caused by Storm Dennis.
Record rivers during the storm have flooded more than 80 companies in the city center.
In the county of Rhondda Cynon Taf, more than 1,000 properties – both residential and commercial – have been damaged.

The Welsh Rugby Union had 60 buckets for fans to make donations to the flood victims and has pledged £ 100,000 to support clubs.
Employees have volunteered to help with the cleanup operation throughout the country.
The union also takes measures to help with equipment that was lost during the floods, and offers specialist expertise in repairing and maintaining damaged places.
Martyn Phillips, group director of the Welsh Rugby Union, said before the game: ‘These are exceptional circumstances and we have therefore decided to allocate special funds and resources to help rugby clubs in need in communities across the country.
“Money has been set aside for such emergencies and we will do everything we can to ensure that we focus on both money and resources in the right areas so that we help those who need it most.”
