Hundreds of well-wishers have taken to the streets to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to the east of England.
William and Kate are today touring the city that gave them their titles, celebrating Cambridge’s university, and some of its charities, schools and hard-working volunteers.
The royal couple arrived by train and were slowly driven to the centre of Cambridge, allowing the crowds to catch a glimpse of them.
Sporting a new hairstyle, Kate was dressed in a MaxMara dress and coat and looked relaxed as she arrived at the Guildhall with her husband who wore a dark suit.
They then greeted people assembled in the market square from the balcony of the building after meeting city dignitaries, before moving on to the Senate House to address 400 students from the university’s 31 colleges.
The couple will open a 24-hour support centre for rough sleepers, before visiting a school involved with a Prince of Wales charity, the Prince’s Teaching Institute, which offers teachers opportunities to develop their skills.
They will conclude their day in Cambridgeshire by opening Peterborough City Hospital and greeting patients and staff at the multi-million pound institution.
Nearly 3,000 people have supported a Facebook campaign demanding safety improvements on the A47 near Dereham set up after the latest fatal crash.
