Kate said: "We're delighted to wish you all a very Happy St Patrick's Day,' before Prince William jokingly turned to her and said: "How come you got that easy bit?", as Kate smiled back at him.

The father-of-three then warmly recalled the couple's visit to Ireland last year as he said: "We were so thrilled to be able to visit Ireland just over a year ago, a few short weeks before all of our lives were turned upside down by the pandemic."

  • Prince Harry and William chat for first time since explosive Oprah interview but it was 'unproductive'

The clip of Kate and William was released the day after it was revealed that William and his brother Prince Harry spoke after his and Meghan Markle’s Oprah Winfrey interview.

The Duchess of Sussex's pal Gayle King said she spoke with 36 year old Prince Harry over the weekend, who told her about the talk.

Speaking on CBS This Morning, Gayle, 66, explained that Harry and William spoke for the very first time since the two-hour special came out, but the chat was "unproductive".

The TV presenter said: "Well, I did actually call them to see how they are feeling, it's true, Harry has talked to his brother and his father, too.

"The word I was given was, those conversations were not productive. But they are glad they at least started a conversation."
