The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Bradford for their first joint royal engagement of the year yesterday.

During their visit, the couple took a tour of the city and visited a community project that aims to strengthen bonds between grandparents and grandchildren.

They met families from the Older Yet Wiser project – a workshop series helping grandparents to enhance their relationship with their grandchildren and giving them information about raising children in the 21st century.

While in West Yorkshire, William and Kate also visited young people, employers and families at a series of projects that promote cohesion within what is one of Britain’s most diverse cities.
