The royal couple will first arrive at the National Football Museum at about 11.20am, in the Urbis building.

The last thing she needs is more buzz about how Prince William and Kate Middleton are doing nothing more than leeching on the British taxpayer's pound.

The visit comes after William and Kate's recent tour of Canada, their first royal tour with their two children Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, 17 months. The Duke of Cambridge also scored a penalty during their visit.

Catherine - who has Prince George, three, and 17-month-old Princess Charlotte with Prince William - was the first to exit the plane and was picked up in a vehicle, which was waiting on the tarmac to pick her up after the 50-minute flight. Middleton and Prince William visited the National Football Museum in Manchester, as well as a hospice that William's mother, Princess Diana, opened there in 1991.

Inside they met England 1966 World Cup-winning player Roger Hunt and handled the famous orange match ball from the final, after chatting to young academy and youth team players from Manchester City, Manchester United, Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic.

Meanwhile, Prince William and Middleton were also given a tour of the museum to explain how and why football has come to be "the people's game", Hello Magazine reported.

But when offered the chance to handle the Jules Rimet Trophy, the prince declined in case he jinxed England's hopes of lifting the cup again by touching it.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, are also visiting Manchester Town Hall, where they will lay commemorative paving stones honouring Manchester's six Victoria Cross recipients.
