Primary school teacher Laura Fields says she was in ‘absolute awe’ when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge rocked up on the beach she was sunbathing at yesterday whilst on her holiday in Australia.
Laura, who teaches at Dinglewell Infants School, said: “I'm out in Australia for the Easter break visiting my brother Gavin, who lives in Coogee. He suggested we visit Manly Beach. When I found out the royals were visiting the same day I was determined to catch a glimpse.
“There was a definite buzz in the air. When I first saw them I was in absolute awe. The duchess came over to my side looking breathtaking.
“The prince kept to the other side. Just when I was happy to leave William headed over to where I was standing. As he got closer along the line of people it became a reality that I might get to meet him. He shook my hand and said to me and others around ‘sorry to disturb your beach’. It took me a little while after to get over my experience as I moved up onto the road to wave them off in the car. A magical memory to make my day.”
