The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge finally visited the city of Cambridge for the first time since they received their titles. The day of engagements started with a reception at the University’s Senate House and a brief appearance at the Cambridge Guildhall’s balcony. Natural History Museum has a very special place in the heart of this nation. They met with students and staff, one of which was Kate’s father’s cousin Dr. Penny Barton. Prince William made a speech during which he spoke of the University’s merits, the pride he and Catherine feel about being associated with the city and of the time he visited with his brother: “My brother Harry and I were fortunate enough to come to Cambridge five years ago, when we spent a couple of days at Trinity. I have to say, it’s the closest Harry’s ever got to university.” The couple also went on a walkabout, during which William received a baby-gro which said “Daddy’s little Co-Pilot.” He said “I’ll keep that!”

In the formal photos the couple stands on a red carpet in the palace’s Council Chamber — in front of oil paintings of some of William’s ancestors — smiling toward the camera, as Middleton rests her left hand on her fiance’s forearm. The more intimate picture shows the pair smiling broadly as they embrace in front of a window at the palace, with William wrapping his arms around Middleton while she puts her left hand on his chest. Clearly visible is the engagement ring William gave her — an oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds that belonged to his mother.
