Of course, Scotland holds special memories for the couple as it’s where they met.

And the pair will be heading back to St Andrews, where they met 20 years ago, as part of the tour.

As part of the trip down memory lane, the couple will also speak to students about the impact COVID-19 has had on their education.

How did royal fans react to William’s flirting?

Royal fans praised William’s down-to-earth nature and said that his mother, Princess Diana, would be “proud”.

One said: “I don’t think William gets enough credit for being warm and caring as she was.

“The older he gets the more expressive he is with caring and kindness but I think it’s always been three albeit a bit formal.

“Having a great marriage and kids has really brought out his softer side.”

Another added: “And he has his mum’s smile.”
