The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated St David’s Day with their Welsh followers with a sweet post of Instagram. The couple shared a picture from their most recent engagement in south Wales which Kate and William attended earlier this year in February.
Kate and William captioned the post: “Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant hapus — Wishing a very happy St David’s Day to all our Welsh followers!”
The Duke and Duchess were pictured smiling as they were presented with three toy dragons at Tata Steel on February 4.
Prince George is a known fan of the mystical creature and last year Prince William revealed his eldest son loves the children’s film How To Train Your Dragon.

The film, which was released in 2014, is about a young Viking who dreams of hunting dragons but eventually becomes friends with one.
Kate and William were not only royals to celebrate St David’s Day yesterday, Hello! reports, with the Queen’s Royal Family account as well as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Sussex Royal also sending a message to their Welsh followers.
Meghan and Harry, who will step back as senior royals at the end of this month, shared a picture from their visit to Wales in January 2018.
The then-recently engaged couple met with royal fans in Cardiff during whirlwind visits to the UK’s devolved nations ahead of their May royal wedding.

The post was captioned: “Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! Wishing all of our Welsh followers a Happy St Davids Day.”
Meanwhile, the official Royal Family Instagram account shared a picture of the Queen in Wales.
Accompanying the picture, a message said: “Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! Wishing all of our Welsh followers a Happy St Davids Day.
“The Queen is greeted by crowds during a 2010 visit to Caernarfon Castle in North Wales.”
The news comes as a conspiracy theory laid out in The New York Times claims Meghan and Harry’s Instagram account has been rigged so it will never overshadow Kate and William’s Kensington Royal page in terms of followers.

Meghan and Harry broke the Guinness world record in 2019 for an impressive one million followers in the space of five hours and 45 minutes after it was launched.
The couple have since amassed 11.2 million followers, the same number as Kate and William.
However, Kate and William’s account has been around for five years, with New York Times’ reporter Caity Weaver commenting: “I think something weird is going on with the Royal Family Instagram account.
She added: “Was it coincidence that Instagram popularity appeared to align so unwaveringly with monarchical hierarchy? Or was there invisible mischief afoot?”
Princess Charlotte is known for her confidence and cheeky personality
Meghan and Harry briefly surpassed Kate and William’s number of followers in mid-January, reaching 11.1 million after the couple announced their plans to split from the Royal Family the week before.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex created their own Instagram account, Sussex Royal, after separating their households from Kate and William in April 2019.
Since then Kate and William have re-branded their Kensington Royal account to include a profile picture with George, Charlotte and Louis and the description now reads: “The official Instagram account of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, based at Kensington Palace.”
Meghan and Harry plan to “refresh” their “digital channels” after the Queen banned them from using “royal” in any branding from April 1.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed plans of a re-brand as they unveiled plans for their future outside of the Royal Family late last month.
In a statement posted on their Sussex Royal website, the pair said: “In Spring 2020, their digital channels will be refreshed as they introduce the next exciting phase to you.”
Their statement has raised from eyebrows as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex appeared to hit back at the Queen, saying: “While there is not any jurisdiction by The Monarchy or Cabinet Office over the use of the word ‘Royal’ overseas, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not intend to use ‘Sussex Royal’ or any iteration of the word ‘Royal’ in any territory (either within the UK or otherwise) when the transition occurs Spring 2020.”
