William & Kate Spend Two Days in Scotland

This morning, William and Kate flew commercially from London to Glasgow. They are headed to Scotland for two days of engagements championing causes close to their hearts.


On a side note, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn in Scotland.


Their first stop is at Emirates Arena in Glasgow. The Emirates Arena is one of the venues for events at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. They will tour the arena, including the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, where they watched riders in a practice session. They also met Games organisers and budding athletes, before unveiling a commemorative plaque to mark their visit.


After lunch at City Hall Civic Chambers, the couple headed over to the Quarriers Stopover project which is a homeless charity. The Stopover Project provides short-term accommodation and support to 16 to 25-year-olds.

Next on the agenda was a stop at the Donald Dewar Leisure Centre to launch a new project for their foundation. The Royal Foundation is partnering with Glasgow Sport and the Hunter Foundation on a new pilot as part of its national Coach Core initiative.

Despite the chilly weather, Kate wore a short tartan coat by Gloucestershire-based designers Moloh. The £425 blue and grey plaid ‘Workers’ coat is 100% wool – perfect for a cold day in Glasgow. The coat featured silver buttons, a flared skirt and a short hemline.
