The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a day out at Wimbledon yesterday, as they watched the nail-biting match between Andy Murray and David Ferrer, which saw Murray make it through to the semi-finals.
Today, Kate and William will travel to Andy’s homeland of Scotland to join the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee tour – and they are extremely happy to return to the country where they both studied and fell in love.
Along with Princess Anne and the Duke of Edinburgh, Kate, or Catherine as she is officially known, and William will head to Edinburgh for an extra special ceremony.
The Royal party will attend a Thistle Service at St Giles’s Cathedral for the installation of Prince William as a Knight of the Thistle – a very proud day for William and Kate in particular.
Locals and tourists are excitedly awaiting the arrival of the Royal guests, in a bid to catch a glimpse of the Queen and, of course, to see what Kate is wearing.
All eyes are sure to be on the Duchess, after she wowed in McQueen at Wimbledon yesterday.
During the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant last month, Kate gave a nod to her love of Scotland by teaming her striking red Alexander McQueen gown with a scarf made of Strathearn tartan. She and Prince William are also known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn.
Will she opt for a Scottish inspired look today?
After the ceremony, the Duke of Edinburgh will attend the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award Presentations at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.
Tomorrow, the final day of the Diamond Jubilee visit in Scotland, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will travel up to Perth, which was recently awarded city status to mark the Diamond Jubilee.
The Queen will be given the Keys to the City, while the Duke will receive the Freedom of the City.
Then the Royals will visit the RHQ Black Watch Museum and Perth College, before enjoying lunch at Scone Palace.
Perhaps Kate and William will also manage to squeeze in a trip back to their beloved St Andrews, where they first met and shared so many happy times together, during their university years.
