Prince William and Kate Middleton enjoyed their first weekend back home after their royal tour with a trip to the cinema.
After being photographed across North America, the couple is spending some time away from the spotlight. However, that didn't stop them from heading to the theater to see Bridesmaids on Saturday.
The girl's gross-out comedy written by Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo has been a summer box office hit - but cinema-goers in Llandudno got more than they expected when they spotted the newly-wed royals.
The cinema later confirmed the visit. Asked by a follower whether the royals were treated to a private screening, the cinema chain replied: We're told the royal couple sat with everyone else after discussing whether to see Transformers or Bridesmaids, Kate won I guess.
They joked: With Prince William & Kate Middy now loyal royal Cineworld Customers, we're replacing the popcorn with caviar and knighting all Unlimiteds.
According to witnesses, the couple also watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.
Kate was said to be dressed down for the occasion in a cardigan and jeans. The couple shared a bag of popcorn and each had a drink.
Will and Kate are known to be film buffs and, on the royal tour, enjoyed meeting Hollywood's own royalty like Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon and Tom Hanks.
The couple was reportedly left without in-flight film service on their trip back to England when the system broke down on their London-bound British Airways flight. It seems they were craving a little bit of escapist cinema.
Will and Kate are expected to spend the rest of the summer as low-key as possible as Will fulfills his duties as a helicopter pilot and Kate adapts to her new role.
She told royal aides while on her tour of Canada that following the 11-day trip she intended to spend the rest of the summer just enjoying being a newly-wed.
The couple has no public engagements until autumn.
