The Duchess of Cambridge has had quite the busy week. After successfully finding Jackie Chan at the Lancaster House in London, Kate Middleton and Prince William made their way to Scotland, where their official title changes to Earl and Countess of Strathearn. On the morning of his wedding ceremony in 2011, the Queen bestowed the hereditary title Earl of Strathearn upon Prince William. This is a custom princes typically undergo on their wedding day. Since the title is one of Scottish nobility, Prince William uses it when he is in the United Kingdom's northernmost country. And that's all for today's lesson in monarchy name games.
The two have a packed day of engagements, but for now they're at the Dundee Rep Theatre to take part in the company's Family Fun Day. Although Princess Charlotte has a reputation for being ladylike, the couple left her and Prince George at home.
For the Scottish occasion, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a Scottish blue coat by Scottish designer Christopher Kane. She paired it with her oft-worn Rhuma boots by Aquatalia. No word on whether Kate will change during her activity-packed day, but, as the saying that everybody says goes, the more coats the merrier.
