What did Prince William and Kate Middleton get up to on the farm today?

The Duke and Duchess travelled to Manor Farm, Little Stainton, near Darlington in the northeast county.

Kate also had a go on the tractor…

During their tour, the Prince climbed up into the tractor and, wearing a face covering, took it for a spin around the field.

Watching on was Kate, who giggled as she saw the tractor trundle off into the distance.

But not content to let her husband have all the fun, she also climbed in and took the tractor for a short drive.

Later in the video, Kate was seen playing with the farm’s children and one of the lambs.
