Prince William and Kate to make first official visit to Dundee

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, will visit Dundee on Friday 23 October, Kensington Palace has confirmed. Making the most of their first official visit to the Scottish city, William and Kate will carry out a total of five engagements.

The focus of their visit will be on mental health in young people – a cause that the Duchess, in particular, has been championing for years.

The couple will meet youth who have faced mental health issues and also join others in an anti-bullying workshop.

William and Kate, who are parents to two-year-old Prince George and baby Princess Charlotte, will also take part in a family fun day at the Dundee Repertory Theatre.

The day will conclude with a visit to Abertay University, one of the two public universities in Dundee. As President of BAFTA, William will no doubt be excited to meet students who are involved in BAFTA's Young Game Designers programme.

Other members of the public will also have a chance to greet the royals, who are known as The Earl and Countess of Strathearn in Scotland, as the couple will carry out a walkabout.

Raising awareness for mental health in young people is a cause close to Kate's heart

This autumn the Duke and Duchess have had a jam-packed schedule of royal engagements to fulfil. William has been balancing these with his job as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance charity. He's joined by his wife, who has just returned from maternity leave and is fully embracing her official duties.

Earlier this month the pair marked World Mental Health day by attending an event at London's Harrow College hosted by the charity Mind. The couple met young people who have battled their own mental health problems and now volunteer with the charity, or with the anti-stigma campaign Time to Change, to raise awareness about mental health.

For the event Kate chose to recycle one of her favourite Tory Burch monochrome dresses, which she was last pictured wearing during the royal tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2014.
