Cambridge welcomes its Duke and Duchess
Prince William and his wife Catherine visited the university city that is home to their dukedom yesterday for the first time since they were given their official titles.
William and Catherine, who were given the titles the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they married last year, received an ecstatic welcome from hundreds of people who started lining the streets in the early hours of the morning.
The royal couple arrived in the city in eastern England by train and were driven through the crowd before a day visiting Cambridge’s prestigious university and a homeless charity.
Catherine, dressed in a MaxMara dress with a coat and showed off a new hairstyle — long layered locks with a parted fringe, which she first sported in London the night before. William wore a dark suit.
During the visit, Kate admitted she was “not sure” about her new hairstyle as it took a battering from the windy weather.
While on their visit, William and Catherine will open a 24-hour support centre for rough sleepers run by the charity Jimmy’s.
