The soon-to-be-married couple looked happy as they participated in the event at Trearddur Bay, North Wales. The lifeboat was named “Hereford Endeavour.”
CBS News correspondent Mark Phillips, who was reporting live from the ceremony, noted that Kate was being scrutinized by everyone as she would soon be part of the Royal family.
“This is very much a trial run for her. Prince William, of course, is very used to this kind of public attention. He’s very used to being at the center of things, having the glare of publicity, having lenses pointed at him. For Kate Middleton, this is a new experience. And they really arranged this particular one to suit her.”
“She’s very familiar with this area, as he is, because they haven’t had to come very far, in fact, to perform this function. He’s based at the air base just up the road, where he is a helicopter pilot, and she’s been spending time with him at their house not far from that base. So this opportunity was really perfect as a first trial run, first exposure. They’re often seen around in this community. They know some of the people here. The people are used to having them around and a crowd of, I would say, 300 to 500, maybe a little more than that in a very remote small, little town has come out to welcome them.”
