Kate Middleton And Prince William In First UK Public Engagement Since Topless Picture Scandal

Posted: Updated:

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge made their first public UK appearance since the topless picture scandal that rocked the royal household.

The pair visited the historic Honourable Society of the Middle Temple where they were introduced to recipients of 'Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Scholarships'.

The society already hands out scholarships named after Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother and Diana, Princess of Wales.

It was the couple's first public appearance since the topless picture scandal

They are given out to law students who have had to overcome financial or personal difficulties in order to study.

Wearing a short burgundy skater skirt and matching jacket by designer Paule Ka with thick black tights and heels, Middleton looked happy and relaxed.

Despite the continuing privacy case against the French publishers of the topless pictures, Middleton is said to be determined to carry on her increasingly busy public role.

The visit marks the start of a four-day UK tour which will take in Burton-On-Trent, Newcastle and Stockton-On-Tees.

The Newcastle visit, on Thursday, will see Middleton making a solo appearance as the Prince will be attending the funeral of Olga Powell, nanny to William and Harry when they were younger.
