Under heavy security, Prince William and Princess Kate started the second day of their Paris visit with the French capital on edge after an early-morning shooting at the city's Orly Airport.

Incredibly, the Duchess of Cambridge is such a sports fan that performed a rugby drill with a group of children from a youth program while in the shoes.

'This partnership will continue despite Britain's recent decision to leave the European Union.

"So much of our countries' histories, culture and language are intertwined", the Duke of Cambridge said, as the Duchess looked on from one side of the stage.

'The connections between our nations run deep - ties of history, ties of values, ties of friendship and family. "It is a feeling that Catherine and I entirely share, and look forward to this and many more visits in the years to come - to France, our ally, our friend, our neighbor".

Kate Middleton saved her best look for last when she stepped out in her third look of the day, turning heads in a attractive blue embellished Jenny Packham gown for a glamorous evening on the couple's royal tour of Paris - it was the ideal princess dress.

The 34-year-old stepped foot in Paris for the first time since his mother's passing on Friday (March 17, 2017).

At a star-studded black-tie dinner at the ambassador's residence, Kate was seated next to "Godzilla" star Jean Reno, while her husband had French actress Audrey Tautou and Kristin Scott-Thomas, the British actress who lives in Paris, for company. Kate paid further tribute to the Irish holiday by accessorising the coat with an Irish Guard Brooch and dark green heels.

Britain's Prince William (R), the Duke of Cambridge, and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, arrive at the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) at Royal Albert Hall in London, Britain, on February 12, 2017.
