Prince William - "Ring Of Fire" Marathon Sees First Post-Birth Public Appearance By The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge
First public appearance sees royal couple well-rested and happy, but without young Prince George in tow.
Kate Middleton and Prince William stepped out on their first public outing since the birth of Prince George this week – unfortunately, the youngest royal was nowhere to be seen. As can be expected, photographers were clamoring to get a snap of the six-month-old third in line for the throne, only to be disappointed by the new parents. According to E!News, when asked how the baby was doing, the Duchess of Cambridge replied with: "He's very well, thank you. He's sleeping at the moment."
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appeared happy and well rested at the event.
The Duke and Duchess made an appearance at a running event – the Ring of Fire race on the Isle of Anglesey - where they seemed relaxed and rested after their six-week hiatus from press appearances. Apparently Kate was feeling up to appearing in public sooner than expected. The Duchess was initially expected to make her first public appearance after giving birth at the at the inaugural Tusk Conservation Awards on Sept. 12. However, on the day of the Anglesey Marathon, the Palace confirmed that she had decided to accompany her husband at the event.
Kate seems to have shed any pregnancy weight in record time.
The royal couple overlooked the proceedings from a nearby hill and counted down to the start along with the rest of the attendees. William, who has been stationed in Anglesey on Royal Air Force duty, rang the bell to signal the race’s kickoff. The royal couple have been living on the island since the birth of their son and came out to the race to thank the community for their support.
