After a highly publicized family tour in Canada, the royal pair has started a new string of official appearances this week.

After riding the London Eye on Monday and joining forces with Prince Harry in support of World Mental Health Day, William and Kate travelled to Manchester on Friday, October 14.

They started the day by visiting the National Football Museum where William got his hands on the 1966 World Cup football and also scored a penalty shoot.

Outside the museum, the couple was greeted by children holding royal masks.

The Cambridges then stopped by the town hall, where they met with municipal authorities and also laid a wreath at the Cenotaph, in honor of the Victoria Cross recipients as part of the WWI Centenary campaign.

The day ended with a visit at Francis House, a children and young adults’ hospice originally opened by Princess Diana.

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, was dressed in a blue and black check print Erdem coat.
