The couple enjoyed a quiet dinner at their favourite Anglesey pub The White Eagle last night (with thanks to Ashley Marie).

The award-winning White Eagle sits on a hill behind the beach and has been a favourite haunt of William and Kate's since 2010. With its sun terrace and relaxed feel it is enormously popular with locals, tourists and RAF officers; William regularly pops in with his colleagues for a bite to eat during a long shift. The pub has enjoyed a burst of popularity in recent years thanks to their royal customers and of course their mouth-watering menu.

Kate's also been spotted shopping at one of the Island's supermarkets wearing a pair of Flossy Shoes (with thanks to Cambridge Watch).

Flossy Plimsolls are said to be incredibly comfortable shoes, originally worn by sailing enthusiasts and streets artists in Barcelona and the Balearics. The brand now has a footprint across Europe and the Middle East with over two million sales. They're available in an array of colours and prints including Black, Floral Print and Pink. The shoes retail for roughly £20 and seem a very practical choice for Kate at this stage of her pregnancy.
I'm glad Kate is spending time in Anglesey with William; she loves it there and it's a very special place for both her and William where they can enjoy a sense of normality and live as serviceman and wife without media interruption. No doubt it will be difficult to say goodbye to Anglesey in the coming months, and I'm sure they'll pay a quiet visit now and again. It certainly is a beautiful island, isn't it?
I know many of you are experiencing Kate withdrawals (yes, we do love a royal sighting or two) and are eager to know if the Duchess has any official engagements scheduled for this month. As of publishing this post nothing has been announced. Kate's appearances are usually announced by the Palace two weeks in advance, however, I think there's a very good possibility we'll see the Duchess towards the end of the month. It seems her engagements are scheduled together to allow her a period of rest afterwards.

Meanwhile, a couple of joint engagements have been announced for Prince William this month. On May 20th, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry will visit the Help For Heroes recovery centre in Tidworth, Wiltshire. The British military charity provides better facilities for wounded servicemen and women.
On May 21st, William will host a conference with Prince Charles to stop illegal wildlife trade. This comes at a time when more and more evidence emerges that the illegal activity is being driven by international organized criminal networks and, in some cases, terrorist and rebel militia groups. It's an issue William is very passionate about and one I'm very glad to see him pursue.

I always enjoy seeing lookalike artist Alison Jackson's work. The BAFTA winner has been outdoing herself lately with a selection of interesting royal photo shoots such as this mock-up of Kate's baby shower.
