Kate Middleton and Prince William have returned to the university where they fell in love back in 2002.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the University of St Andrews in Fife during their royal tour of Scotland on Wednesday 26 May.

Kate, 39, and Prince William, 38, looked smitten as they met with current students at the institution.

The couple heard from students about the ways in which both they and the university have supported one another throughout the coronavirus pandemic.


Mum-of-three Kate opted for a casual look for the visit, as she wore a white and navy blue striped jumper, which she tucked into a pair of jeans.

The chic Duchess topped her look off with a gold buttoned blazer while she and William took a trip down memory lane.

She clutched onto an umbrella to protect her perfectly blow-dried brunette locks from the Scottish rain.


Meanwhile, William matched Kate's casual attire with a jumper with a shirt peeking up from the collar.

He wore a dark plain coat and jeans as he, too, held on to a black umbrella while strolling through the campus grounds.

Before meeting with students, the Royal couple let their hair down as they went head-to-head in a land yacht race.


The couple were seen steering a wind-powered go kart at West Sands Beach, before William beat his wife to the finish line, which is a short drive away from St Andrews.

William and Kate's visit will no doubt bring back some happy memories for the pair, who met at the Scottish university nearly 20 years ago in 2002.

Kate is said to have caught the Duke's eye as she made an appearance on a catwalk during a fashion show at the university, where he called his future wife "hot" to a friend who sat beside him.

Fast forward three years and the couple were clearly incredibly in love as they posed for a photo on the day of their graduation from the university.

In the image, which gives a rare insight into Kate and William during their time at uni, Kate is beaming while she affectionately hugs the future King.

Meanwhile, Prince William reciprocates Kate's affection by sweetly holding on to her hand and wrapping his arm around her while posing for the photo. The pair are both dressed in white shirts for the occasion.

Dad-of-three William, who has now been married to Kate for 10 years, recently reminisced on meeting his now-wife, at the beginning of the Scottish tour last week.

As he fulfilled his new role as Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, he said in a speech: "It was here in Scotland 20 years ago this year that I first met Catherine.

"Needless to say, the town where you meet your future wife holds a very special place in your heart."

The couple have appeared to be still as in love as ever during their latest tour.

Kate beamed as she accompanied William to officially open The Balfour at the Orkley hospital on Tuesday 25 May.

And the day before, the pair had a sweet exchange as Kate tested out her DJ skills as they visited a charity in North Lanarkshire on Monday 24 May.

As she attempted to give DJing a try, William joked: "It's hurting my ears" much to the Duchess' amusement.
