Find out about today's events as they happen...

The Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge are undertaking their first ever solo engagement together - and we will be watching with all of the latest updates from their exciting visit! The pair will visit King's College London on Tuesday to reopen the newly renovated Bush House, the latest education and learning facilities on the Strand Campus. Although the Queen and Kate have of course attended many events together alongside other members of the royal family, we're excited to see them pair up for this special occasion! This will not be the Queen's first visit to King's College, as she is a patron and has previously visited the campus back in 2002 and 2012 - and so will be able to show her granddaughter-in-law the ropes! Whilst touring the new facilities, they will view the robotics demonstration and visit a virtual trading floor, meeting students from the Entrepreneurship Institute. The Queen will also unveil a plaque to formally open Bush House.

Later, Kate will visit the Foundling Museum to learn how art is a key tool for vulnerable and marginalised young people to engage with society. The museum explains the story of the Foundling Hospital, which is the UK's first children's charity and public art gallery. See below for our live blog, keeping you up to date with the Queen and Kate's FIRST solo outing...

Welcome to the live updates from The Queen and Kate's FIRST solo outing!  The pair will be on their way to King's College London now, excited to visit the latest education and learning facilities on the Strand Campus. We can't wait to see what they get up to...

Kate has had a busy week, attending a St Patrick's Day parade on Sunday in Hounslow where the Duchess handed out shamrocks to officers and warrant officers and was reunited with the Irish wolfhound mascot that she has met several times previously! Catch up on everything she has been getting up to recently here...

The Queen and Kate have an exciting schedule today, touring the facilities and meeting the supporters of the development! The pair will even get to view a robotics demonstration, where they can see how robotic surgery can be carried out- super cool!
