Prince William and his new wife Catherine said that when they returned to the U.K. from their tour of Canada and visit to California that they wanted to live a life "under the radar" at their Welsh home.

So, what better way to lead the life of normal newlyweds than to go on a movie date?

On Saturday, the couple headed from Anglesey, where William is based as an Royal Air Force search and rescue helicopter pilot, to the nearest multiplex at Llandudno Junction, about 40 miles away, to see the American comedy Bridesmaids.





Other moviegoers were soon excitedly Tweeting about the sighting. "My friend from Uni has just seen Prince William and Kate Middleton in my local cinema," a Twitter user wrote Saturday.

Cineworld confirmed the outing in a Tweet Monday, posting, "Prince William & Kate Middy saw Bridesmaids at Cineworld Llandudno this W'end. Wonder what they made of Kristen Wiigs 'one eyed' impression?"

The royal couple are avid film lovers, and loved meeting some top movie stars like Nicole Kidman, Barbra Streisand and Tom Hanks while in Los Angeles at a BAFTA celebration. A palace source tells PEOPLE that Kate was "as thrilled as anyone else would be to meet people who she has seen on the screen."

William and Kate are expected to spend most of the rest of the summer in North Wales, with William working and Kate considering what patronages and causes to adopt in her new public role. They are also expected to travel to Scotland to visit Queen Elizabeth's estate, Balmoral.

"They have the rest of their lives to be public figures and working hard on behalf of the Queen and want to keep things on a level and enjoy their marriage," palace spokesman said last week.
