The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge proved they are not afraid of heights after abseiling down a 12-metre wall.

Prince William and his wife Kate grinned at each other before taking the plunge whilst on a visit to an outdoor activity centre in north Wales.

Dressed in waterproof jackets and walking boots, the pair showed off their daring yet competitive sides as they descended the wall.

William went first - the operation overseen by Kate, who asked him: "William, how much do you love me?" as she took hold of the ropes before lowering him down.

She told schoolchildren at The Towers Residential Outdoor Education Centre, to "stand and watch" as her husband made the descent.

She went on to say: "I'm quite enjoying this actually, for once I'm in control" as the future king eased his way down.
