Britain’s Prince William and Princess Kate told ‘Ireland belongs to the Irish’ in Belfast


When meeting members of the public on her visit to Northern Ireland, the Princess of Wales was challenged by a woman who suggested Kate was not in her own country.

The exchange unfolded when Kate and William were undertaking an impromptu meet and greet with people in north Belfast.

While shaking hands with the princess, the woman said: “Nice to meet you but it would be better if it was when you were in your own country.”

The woman, who appeared to be videoing the exchange on a mobile phone, added: “Ireland belongs to the Irish.”
