The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have marvelled at a new bridge that Sunderland hopes will help with regeneration in the area.

On Wednesday, Prince William and Kate Middleton stopped by The Fire Station, an iconic building in Sunderland that was recently converted into a music and arts hub.

The Duchess of Cambridge is known for her ladylike elegance, so the acquisition of a tattoo on her hand might shock some royal fans.

The duchess seemed delighted when 18 year old Shajida Begum drew a black flower with a swirl.

"She was saying that it was really pretty".

The Duchess also requested a pack of bindis to take home for her daughter Princess Charlotte.

Kate Middleton and Prince William moved on after the fire station to the site of the new Northern Spire Bridge which is due to open in Spring 2018. "She was lovely", she said of Kate, admitting she felt "like a bit of a wimp" standing barefoot next to a pregnant woman in heels. They met local children who will benefit from using the bridge, before crossing it themselves to meet the engineers and construction workers who helped build it.

The Northern Spire will help reduce congestion around the city, speed up vehicle journeys and allow land along both sides of the River Wear to be regenerated and developed.

As a Sunderland City Council project, Northern Spire is a key part of a wider transport plan to improve links between the Port of Sunderland and the city centre with the A19.
