The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Edinburgh this morning for their first stop of the Royal Train tour.
Following their arrival, Kensington Palace announced that the Duke and Duchess have become Joint Patrons of NHS Charities. The 240 UK NHS charities provide extra funding and additional services above and beyond NHS core funds, supporting hospitals, community and mental health services and ambulances services.
For their first engagement as Patrons, William and Kate met Scottish Ambulance Service paramedics and staff to thank them for their incredible efforts throughout the pandemic.
The Duchess combated the chilly Scottish weather in her teal blue Catherine Walker coat.
The bespoke garment was first seen during the 2018 Scandinavian royal visit, and later worn for the 2019 Sunday Service.
Today Kate contrasted the coat with black accessories. She wore black leather gloves and carried a new clutch bag by Strathberry. It is the Scottish brand's 'Multrees' Chain Wallet in embossed croc black ($335).
Completing the look were her Sapphire & Diamond Oval Drop Earrings, and a new Amaia reusable cotton face mask in Blue Emma & Georgina print.
The Duke and Duchess hopped back on the Royal Train and headed south to Berwick-Upon-Tweed to meet staff and pupils from Holy Trinity Church of England First School, where the couple celebrated the incredible work of teachers over the past year.
Kate swapped the high heeled boots for her Stuart Weitzman 'Half N Half' Black Boots ahead of the visit.
