Watch: Prince William and Kate shear sheep, put their rural skills to the test

Prince William showed off a previously hidden talent for sheep-shearing during a tour of the rural town of Kaswick in the north of England.

With his wife Kate looking on, the Prince took a turn with the shears at a sheep farm.

Kate then had a turn. 

The royal couple, officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, also took part in another traditional countryside activity - they helped to build a dry stone wall. 

They also visited food stalls at the local farmers' market and met with volunteers from the local community, including responders from the Keswick Mountain Rescue Team.
