They will also learn about the technical details behind the organization of the show including lights, sound, and visual effects, and offer their hand in the final settings of the show.

Welsh Artist Nathan Wyburn created two collages of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Her Majesty The Queen, using 1 image from each of her 70-year as monarch. Prince Geoge and Princess Charlotte were very much interested in the picture and loved finding an image of themselves and little Louis in the artwork.
At Cardiff Castle, I captured the moment when a lady told The Duchess of Cambridge ‘You’re going to be a brilliant Princess’ and she replied looking at Prince William ‘I’m in good hands’ 💙😭🙌
