It was just another Royal visit... the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were walking around the Nasledan housing development yesterday when they happened upon a group of builders...

Now, the usual protocall on such occasions is to stand and wave as the Royal couple pass by – but one opportunisitic construction worker, Sam Wayne from Redruth, took it a step further.

As reported by MailOnline, he was seen gesturing to the Duchess before snapping a selfie with him in the foreground and her walking behind him. Granted she was at a distance, but her pink Lela Rose dress and those grey signature espadrille wedges were unmistakable.

What was Kate's reaction? She found it hilarious naturally, and was pictured by official photographers laughing at the stunt.

But that wasn't all she laughed at that day...

Earlier on, the Duke and Duchess had visited Healey's Cornish Cider Farm – celebrating it's 30th anniversary – and Catherine had been called behind the bar to pull her husband a pint!

She skillfully filled the glass with Rattler Cider and handed it to William, before she burst into laughter; there was a good inch between where the cider ended and where the top of the glass was, so that might have had something to do with it... Although William was later reported to have commented saying it tasted 'just like it does in the pub'.

The pair are in the West Country for two days visiting Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. So far they have dropped by the Wave Project on Towan Beach in Newquay – an organisation aimed to reduce stress and anxiety in young people and aid mental health – as well as businesses in Truro.

We're not sure where they're heading next, but we're hoping a traditional Cornish tea will feature. And just so we're clear it's jam then cream on the scone. #JustSaying
