Kensington Palace shared an impressive piece of artwork by the Duchess of Cambridge as Kate and Prince William returned to London after their tour of Scotland.

The sketch of St Andrew's was created by Kate in 2002, when she would have been a student at the University – the place where she met and fell in love with Prince William.

Kate studied art history and graduated with a 2:1 degree in the subject in 2005. While William was enrolled on the same course as his wife in the first year, he later switched to Geography.

Since marrying William in 2011, Kate's interest in art and photography is reflected in her royal patronages including the National Portrait Gallery, The Foundling Museum and The Royal Photographic Society.
