Kate, 40, showed her sympathy in Swansea on the second day of the couple’s first Welsh tour as the Prince and Princess of Wales.

She told volunteers at St Thomas Church: “With the cost-of-living crisis, there are a lot of desperate people out there.”

The Princess saluted the food bank as a “lifeline to so many people” and praised its not-for-profit cafe and help for homeless people and new mothers.

Kate added: “What’s so wonderful is there is such a mixture of young and old. You have 90-year-olds as well as youngsters – a real family organisation.

“We need places like this to bring people together, where people can come and engage. It’s what we need post-Covid and with the cost-of-living crisis.”

“Lots of people are too scared to come and engage, so it’s wonderful you go out to see them too.”

Pat Hughes, who runs the food bank, said: “It was lovely to chat with the Princess and it’s something we won’t forget.”
