Kate Middleton & Prince William Launch A Lifeboat

In their first public appearance since announcing their engagement, Kate Middleton and Prince William were on hand to launch and dedicate a new lifeboat in Wales earlier today.

With 2,000 locals watching dockside, Middleton, 29, was all smiles and looked tres chic in her Vivien Sheriff hat, oatmeal coat by Katherine Hooker and booties by Russell & Bromley, according to the Telegraph. The couple sang both the Welsh and English national anthems and Middleton poured champagne over the “Hereford Endeavor.”

The duo — stealing smiles and glances at one another throughout — then greeted locals and dignitaries. They do look like a cute couple, no?
