Touching moment 90-year-old superfan kisses the Duchess of Cambridge’s hand

Duchess Kate has continued to win the hearts of the people in South Wales as she met a 90-year-old superfan on her latest royal outing.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were greeting people who lined up on a pier in Swansea, where the Duchess made a beeline for Harvey Bentley from Swansea.

Harvey was there with his son-in-law Mike Sutton Smith and Harvey chatted with the duchess before taking her hand and placing a kiss on the back of it.

Duchess Kate bent down to talk to Harvey, asking if he was warm enough due to the “chilly wind”.

Duchess Kate said to Harvey: “I hope you're keeping warm enough. You've wrapped up well? It's that chilly wind.

“Thank you for coming to say hello to us. Very nice to meet you. I'll get William to come and say hello.”

The Duke of Cambridge then came over to greet the retired mechanic.

Harvey was over the moon with the meeting, saying that “they are the nicest people you could meet”.

His son in law was impressed as well.

“William told Harvey he didn't look a day over 60!' said Mike, according to The Daily Mail. “This is the most exciting day Harvey has had in many years. We are so impressed with them, they are incredible.”

Mike then thanked the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on Twitter.

“William and Kate, each of you paused to look my father-in-law in the eye today, to listen to him and be his friend for a few timeless beautiful minutes,” he wrote.

“You are the real deal and he and our family will never ever forget. Thankyou xx”
