Princess Kate - In Red

Kate Middleton was a vision in red during a recent royal engagement at St Andrews with her fiancé Prince William, where the couple attended the University’s 600th anniversary.

Kate kept things simple by favouring a red jacket and skirt outfit which she teamed with a black belt and gloves. As someone who is quickly becoming a fashion icon, watchful eyes will have been taking note of her choice of attire for public engagement. Kate opted out of wearing a hat, allowing her long brown hair to blow elegantly in the blustery Scottish winds.

The University is close to the hearts of Prince William and Kate as it is where their love began to blossom. The pair met whilst studying for their undergraduate degrees in 2001 at St Andrews, where it is believed that Kate was voted most desirable woman in the St Salvator’s halls of residence.

With 600 years of history, St Andrews is certainly a well established university. It also prides itself on being Scotland’s first university and the third oldest in the English-speaking world. The event saw around 600 students and staff welcome the couple and there’s no doubt that the presence of the young Royals has further raised the University’s profile.

During their visit, Kate and William met University faculty members and alumni accumulating in the ceremonial unveiling of a plaque to commemorate the 600th anniversary which took place at St Salvator's Quadrangle, where William holds patronage.

St Andrews principal and vice-chancellor Professor Louise Richardson said: "We were very pleased to make the offer of this scholarship as a wedding gift and absolutely delighted that they have graciously accepted."

The couple received a £70,000 scholarship from the University which will be presented to future students from low-income families. The grant includes covers tuition fees, accommodation and living expenses for a four-year undergraduate degree in science, arts, medicine or divinity.
