The Royal Fab Four's busy week starts today with Kate Middleton and Prince William's visit to Dundee, Scotland, where they are known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn. The two are officially opening the Victoria & Albert Museum's location there and will meet members of the public after. Kate is a patron of the V&A Museum. For the occasion, Kate rewore her green Alexander McQueen tartan coat dress from 2012 while Prince William wore a suit alongside her.
She first wore it when she visited St. Andrew's School in November 2012:
This is Kate and Prince William's very first joint engagement of the year, but the two have done their own solo engagements this month. Most recently, William was at the World Economic Forum last week, while Kate went to visit Family Action Lewisham on 22 January. There, she wore a belted green dress by Beulah. The Duchess of Cambridge launched a national support line called FamilyLine during that visit.
Kate and William's day in Dundee comes before Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will go out for the next three days. Meghan will visit the last two of her four newly announced patronages, the National Theatre and the Association of Commonwealth Universities, first. Then on Friday, Meghan and Harry will wrap the week up with a joint engagement.
Meghan's first event will be on Wednesday, when she goes to the National Theatre. According to Kensington Palace, Meghan will "explore the organization's work, and...meet some of the talented teams and apprentices working behind the scenes." On Thursday, she'll visit the Association of Commonwealth Universities, where she'll "meet students and academics from across the ACU’s network of 500 university members," the Palace wrote.
Meghan and Harry will then visit Bristol on Friday, where they'll "meet members of the public, learn more about the city’s rich cultural history, and visit organizations supporting communities most in need," according to the Palace. That's all the events announced in advance this week for the royal four, although Kate and William could easily carry on their own engagements—private or announced day of—the rest of this week.
