William struggles to juggle as he marks Galway’s year of culture

The Duke of Cambridge showed off his juggling skills to the delight of his wife as they celebrated Galway's year as the European Capital of Culture.

The duke and duchess, who wore a dress by Suzannah, were in good spirits despite their arrival in Galway being delayed by over an hour due to foggy conditions in Dublin which delayed their helicopter flight.
