While on a visit to the Land Rover Plant in Birmingham, England earlier today, Duchess Kate and Prince William engaged in some royal tomfoolery, attending a mountain rescue team training session, and even driving a car off-road, with each of them taking a turn behind the wheel.


For the engagement, the Duchess sported a black mock-turtleneck and gold accessories. She also wore a military-style coat by Goat and Russell & Bromley knee-high boots.


Kate is known for having an adventurous spirit. Prince William, too, has a history of thrill-seeking given that he was once a search and rescue pilot in the Royal Air Force. He is currently a supporter of mountain rescue organizations around the country.


Later in the day, the royals visited Acme Whistles where the above photo was taken, met with children from the Top Cliffe School, and visited the Coach Core team on the Ashton Villa soccer field.
