Back in November 2012, Kate and William visited their “Dukedom” for the first time. They visited the city of Cambridge to meet the mayor and representatives from a number of local charities.
Early in the morning, before the Royal Couple set off for Cambridge, @TheRealJesal snapped this picture at Kings Cross St Pancras train station:
The couple boarded their train and shortly after 10am, they arrived in Cambridge. In this photo taken by @RaymondBrownCN, a Cambridge News reporter on Twitter, you can see Kate and William shortly after disembarking from the train. Kate’s carrying an umbrella, a result of the awful weather. The brolly matches her outfit perfectly!
Kate’s outfit from the Cambridge Visit:
The coat is made from wool and cashmere and features a funnel neck and matching belt. The coat originally retailed for £980 before going on sale for £784.
Kate paired the coat with an animal print dress, also by Max Mara.
More details from the couple’s visit to Cambridge:
The Duke and Duchess visited the Guildhall where they met representatives from the Mayor’s charities, Cambridge News Community Awards winners and other VIP guests. Here’s a montage of shots from @ChrisHavergalCN:
On the left Kate and William are both in the Mayor’s Parlour, accepting a gift, which we’re informed is a Cambridge palimpsest, made for the couple by Cambridge University Press.
Shortly after, the Cambridges headed onto the Guildhall’s balcony, where the crowd roared with wild applause. Here we share a snap from “You Can Bike Too” @YouCanBike2 on Twitter, who are an ‘all ability bike product in Cambridge set up by a group of people with disabilities for the befits of the whole community.’

Next, the royal couple conducted a walkabout through Market Square, before arriving at the Cambridge University Senate House.
