Kate Middleton learning Welsh
London - Britain's Duchess of Cambridge has been learning Welsh.
The 29-year-old royal - who lives in North Wales with her husband Prince William, who is a search and rescue pilot in Anglesey - has been attempting the local language so she does not get caught short if a native-speaker engages her in conversation.
A source told the Daily Express newspaper: "She has picked up a few Welsh phrases.
"She knows the basics or when she might bump into Welsh speakers, things like, 'Bore da', which is good morning; 'noswaith dda', good evening, and thank you, which is 'diolch yn fawr'."Normal things
Kate, who married William in a lavish ceremony at London's Westminster Abbey on April 29, has been mixing with locals since moving to Wales.
Just days after their wedding she was seen at a local supermarket
where she shopped alone, and the couple recently enjoyed a trip to the cinema to see US comedy Bridesmaids.
A source who saw her at the Waitrose store said: "She looked very happy and said she was making a pie. Maybe it was for a romantic dinner. It's nice she can do normal things."
