William and Kate, the Earl and Countess of Strathearn, were given a warm welcome to Dundee as they held a series of engagements with a focus on young people and mental health.
The royals on their first official visit to the city were greeted by enthusiastic crowds throughout the day and stopped to chat to many as they visited a number of projects in the city.
The day started at Dundee Rep, before they moved on to The Corner, The Shore, RRS Discovery and Abertay University.
William spoke out about the nation’s attitude to mental health, saying it was “sad” that “society does not seem to listen enough” to those with problems.
In recent weeks the royal couple have been focusing their public work on promoting the emotional and psychological wellbeing of children and teenagers and visited Dundee to learn more about how the area is dealing with the issue.
The visit began on a lighter note with the Duke and Duchess spending last night in St Andrews where they went to university, met and fell in love more than a decade ago.
