BRITAIN’S Princess Kate has said she would love to visit Donegal.

Cruise liner officer Paul Gill, from Greencastle in Inishowen, says the Duchess of Cambridge told him she would love to visit the county when he met her in June.

He was on board the cruise liner the Royal Princess when it was launched by Kate in her last public engagement before giving birth to Prince George.

Paul told local magazine Peninsula People: “After all the public festivities surrounding the launch she came to the bridge of ship to meet with the officers.

“She was really, really lovely. She noticed I was wearing a badge with the Irish Tricolour and my name on it.

“She asked me what part I was from. When I told her I was from Donegal, she said ‘I hear it is lovely, I would love to visit there some day’.”
