Duchess of Cambridge visit: Primary school pupils make own flags to welcome Kate Middleton to Grimsby
EXCITED pupils at Macaulay Primary Academy are preparing to wave their flags for the arrival of The Duchess Of Cambridge.
Year Five pupils have created 50 flags for the future Queen of England – Kate Middleton – to welcome her with the colours of red, white and blue at The Fishing Heritage Centre. Pupil Shauna Leen, 10, wouldn't want to miss Her Royal Highness arriving to the town.
She said: "I am really looking forward to it and I think she is really pretty.
"I loved her wedding dress when she got married and I can't wait to see what she will be wearing on the day.

"If I met her I would be breathless and just scream. I would ask her what the gender of her baby is, and what push chair she will be buying for her baby. I'm wondering if it will be Mamas and Papas."
Kaney Jewitt, 10, said she would ask Kate what she would call her baby.
She added: "She is beautiful and I want to know what dress she will wear on the day.
"Her husband William is really nice looking and I'd love to go out with him because he has got muscles.
"I want her to come to our school and see what it's like."
Ella Newman, 9, wants to know what Kate's baby will look like when it's born.
She added: "I will be waving my flag loads at the front and I cannot wait to see her arrive at The Fishing Heritage Centre.
"I like the way she dresses."
Even if you can't make it to see Kate in person, the Grimsby Telegraph will be covering everything so you don't miss out.
A breaking news edition will be produced on the big day - available from 1.30pm - and www.thisisgrimsby.co.uk will be updated as the Duchess makes her way through the town.
We will also be live streaming video online and pupils at Macaulay Academy will be uploading pictures and stories from their visit to the website after the visit.
Contact the newsdesk on 01472 372236 if you want to get involved too.
A special 16-page souvenir supplement will be free with your Grimsby Telegraph on Wednesday.
Gabriella Lilliman, 9, will also be going and she will be taking her flowers on the day to give to the duchess.
"It will be the first time I have ever met her. I have met the Queen before in London so she is the second Royal I will have ever seen."
Sam Kershaw, 11, said he's not sure if he will be going with school, but he wants to watch it on television.
"If I met her, I would want to ask if she wanted to be a queen when she was a child. I wouldn't want to be a Royal because it seems like too much hard work."
Principal Julie Saunders will be helping the pupils upload their stories and pictures onto thisisgrimsby.co.uk
"It would be a shame to let this rare occasion pass by and I want the pupils to see it.
"It is a great opportunity to see our future Queen and I follow the Royals very closely.
"I watched the Royal wedding and follow the way she looks. I think this Royal visit is fantastic for Grimsby and I am sure the 50 children going will never forget the occasion."
