Huge Irish sports fan gets rare selfie with Prince William in Kildare


Prince William does not stop for many selfies but he was not going to pass up the opportunity to make the day of this young woman.

Hardcore sports fan Jennifer Malone can now add Prince William to the list of A-List names she’s been lucky enough to meet, having previously rubbed shoulders with Hugh Jackman, Johnny Sexton, Una Healy and Greg O’Shea.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continued their tour of Ireland on Wednesday, starting their day with a visit to a youth mental health charity in Temple Bar ahead of the short trip to Kildare.

It was there, in Prosperous, that Prince William ran into Jennifer who, sporting her beloved Irish rugby jersey, asked the Royal for a naughty selfie.

Prince William duly pledged and smiled for a photo alongside Jennifer, clutching the bouquet of daffodils she had given him to give to his wife, Kate Middleton.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge then traveled to Meath, where they took a look at the Derrypatrick herd at the Teagasc Animal Bioscience Research Center.

They ended their afternoon with a leisurely stroll in Howth, soaking up the sun on one of the nicest days of the past few weeks.

Tomorrow William and Kate are expected to make the trip west to admire the sights and sounds of Galway before returning to the UK.
