William added that they also acquired "lots of chickens" — just like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry!

The two seemed fearless, as Kate, 39, held a tarantula, whose name was Charlotte, while William, 39, got to hang out with a snake.

"It’s great to be back in Northern Ireland for a day in Derry-Londonderry hearing from young people about how life has been during the pandemic and meeting organisations working across communities," the Duke and Duchess' official Twitter account read.

Later on, the two got a chance to meet with some students.

"Reunited with the students of @UlsterUni," they wrote on Twitter. "Earlier this year, The Duke and Duchess heard from Year 3 nursing students — today they met some of them in person and heard how their studies have progressed since they last spoke in February."

"It was great to meet the first cohort of medical students accepted into @UlsterUni’s new School of Medicine. The new School will develop a new generation of doctors who will work in Northern Ireland and beyond once their studies are complete," the message continued.

The day didn't stop there! The couple then went on to play a game of soccer.

"At @CityOfDerryRFC to meet players, coaches and volunteers involved in the Sport Uniting Communities initiative," a message read of their next outing. "The project promotes meaningful, purposeful and sustained contact between individuals from different backgrounds – particularly across the religious divide."
