The Prince and Princess of Wales appeared to be royally good sports in an unseen photograph from their visit to a mountain rescue centre.
Kate and Prince William, both 41, looked the part in red waterproof jackets as they joined Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team in Wales in April 2023, when they were put through their paces with some abseiling.
The royal couple also took part in medical support exercises – in which they helped move a ‘patient’ on a stretcher to safety.
A new image from the day’s activities showed Kate and William leading the way as they wheeled the ‘injured’ man across the grass, alongside several members of the rescue team.
The photo features as the cover of Mountain Rescue magazine, with the Mountain Rescue England and Wales’ official account on Twitter (now known as X) sharing a look at the picture.

‘Having a Royal Patron is a huge honour and MR volunteers appreciate the support of @KensingtonRoyal HRH The Prince of Wales,’ the image was captioned.
It continued: ‘@CBMRT Central Beacons recently hosted a VIP visit – you might recognise a couple of the people on the latest MR Magazine cover.’
The post – shared over the weekend – also included a link for social media users to access the magazine.
For the outing, Kate opted for a practical outfit, arriving at the centre in a £600 red-and-black waterproof jacket by the outdoors brand Mountain Equipment.
The practical jacket is often worn by Mountain Rescue Teams as it has reflective panels to aid visibility in poor weather conditions.
On top of this, Kate’s coat also has a fully adjustable hood, laminated pockets and has three layers to keep wearers warm.
Kate then paired her coat with a roll-neck jumper and some khaki skinny jeans by the Dutch brand G-Star RAW.
The royal wore the £110 cargo-style trousers on her trip to Belize last year and then again earlier this year when she took part in battlefield injuries training with 1st Battalion Irish Guards.

The £110 slim-fitting trousers are made almost entirely of cotton and have large practical pockets on either side.
She was also pictured wearing a camouflage cap – which kept her long brown ponytail out of her face – and some dainty silver dangly earrings.
Finishing off her ensemble, Kate then opted for her go-to walking boots. Designed by outdoor brand Berghaus, the £175 brown leather shoes have a lightweight sole which gives ‘improved flexibility’, according to the product description.
Kate and William visited Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team as it celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.
William, who is patron of Mountain Rescue England and Wales, and Kate had the opportunity to engage in training activities such as abseiling, medical support exercises and a search dog rescue demonstration.

Run entirely by volunteers, the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team has been working to keep the communities of Mid and South Wales safe since 1963.
The team responds to calls 24 hours a day, year round and covers the Central area of the Bannau Brycheiniog National Park, which incorporates Pen y Fan, the highest point in southern Britain, as well as the Ystradfellte waterfalls, Cardiff, Newport and the Valleys.
During their time with the team, the royal couple met with current volunteers to hear about their roles and experiences of carrying out rescues, in addition to former team members spanning the organisation’s 60-year history.
