Outside the university, many students gathered to welcome the royal couple but as William and Kate apologised for later, they didn't have time to speak with everyone.

A message shared to their official Twitter account featured a video of the pair talking to some of the people who had come to see them, which was thoughtfully captioned: "So many students! Sorry if we missed you."

They started their Scottish visit with a tour of St John’s Primary School in Port Glasgow, where they learned about an innovative project where children interact with a mother and baby to learn about child development and aid their emotional empathy.

The couple shared a heartfelt message to social media

Later they met people who had been helped by the housing, care and property management organisation the Wheatley Group.

They included tenant Joanne Wales, a mother-of-four who prompted the Duchess to reveal a sweet detail about her and William's youngest child, Prince Louis, four.

As Miss Wales' son Jason, who is the same age as Louis, showed the Cambridges his Spider-Man and Hulk toys, Kate sweetly replied: "Louis our little boy loves Spider-Man too."

The couple enjoyed meeting local residents

Miss Wales, who has been a single parent since her partner died nearly two years ago, later shared that she had enjoyed talking to the royal couple.

She said: "They were absolutely lovely and straight away they were talking to Jason about superheroes. "It was not as weird as I had thought it would be because they just put you at ease, they are so nice and welcoming, they just wanted to make sure that I was doing okay."
