Kate and William spent the early afternoon learning about Cornwall’s maritime heritage at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall (NMMC) on the town’s Discovery Quay.

After visiting the museum’s workshop, they met young people and watched pupils from a local school taking part in a model boat race.

A sweet moment emerged at the NMMC when Kate recognised one of its volunteers as her former history teacher, Jim Embury, and went to hug him.

After clocking who he was instantly, she told him: ‘The things you taught me, I now teach to my children.’

Jim, who taught the Duchess of Cornwall at her prep school around 25 years ago, said he was thrilled to bump into his former pupil. 

He added: ‘She was a fantastic student and it was a great class.’
