Kate Middleton Is Radiant In Red Coat For Scotland Visit With Prince William

Kate Middleton and Prince William have arrived in the Strathearn area of Scotland for a day of royal duties that include unveiling a plaque in Crieff and meeting members of the local community at The Famous Grouse whisky distillery.

It's the first time the duke and duchess - also known as Earl and Countess of Strathearn - have visited the county since they were given the titles at their wedding in 2011 and Kate has clearly put the 'bare bottom' incident behind her.


The first thing on their agenda was a visit to Strathearn Community Campus, where the couple were greeted by groups of Scouts and Brownies.

Kate looked totally at ease as she entertained young Rainbows and as always, she was dressed appropriately for the temperamental spring weather.

She chose her coat carefully too. The striped red number is by Scottish designer Jonathan Saunders and the young royal teamed it with a celtic broach given to her as a wedding present, a Goat shift dress and Kiki McDonough pear drop earrings.

A statement-making look from the duchess, but she was less experimental with her footwear - the patent nude stilettos made yet another appearance.


While Kate chatted to the younger members of the crowd, Prince William spoke to representatives from the Scottish Air Ambulance.

Recent reports suggest he could return to the skies to become a helicopter pilot for the service, rather than taking on full-time royal commitments.


William and Kate will continue their tour with a visit to MacRosty Park, followed by an appearance at the Glenturret distillery before ending the day at a fete in Forteriot.
