Royal Family news – Kate Middleton & Prince William reminisce university days in St Andrews before heading to Edinburgh

05/29/2021

PRINCE William and Kate Middleton reminisced as they returned to St Andrews in Scotland – 20 years after they were regulars while at university.

Yesterday the couple took a "trip down memory lane" as they enjoyed fish and chips at their old favourite student takeaway.

The royal couple returned to St Andrews, where they first met as students, before making a detour to Anstruther Fish Bar. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were said to be "regulars" at the chippy when they studied at St Andrews University.

They popped in to say hello and staff and ate their haddock and chips on a bench by the harbour before returning for ice cream.

And today, the Duke and Duchess have been planting seeds with youngsters on their final day of their royal tour.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Starbank Park in Edinburgh this morning to help teenagers doing their Duke of Edinburgh's bronze award plant sunflowers.

    HARRY'S RELATIONSHIP WITH PALACE 'HANGING BY A THREAD'

    Prince Harry's relationship with the Palace is "hanging by a thread" – after the Queen was left "gobsmacked" by his latest revelations, a source has claimed.

    The monarch was reportedly told Harry's new documentary, The Me You Can't See, was going to cover soldiers' mental health.

    As a result, she gave her blessing for his involvement, it's claimed.

    However, in the Apple TV show – which aired on Friday – the Duke of Sussex instead launched a series of "personal attacks" on his family.

    The show left his father and grandmother "absolutely gobsmacked" – and his relationship with the royals may now be over, the source claimed.

    KATE STUNS IN £849 TARTAN COAT

    When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a special NHS film screening in Edinburgh last night, tartan was a total no-brainer for the mum-of-three.

    As she arrived at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Duchess stunned in a £849 blue-and-green tartan coat by British brand Holland Cooper.

    The classic double-breasted coat has gold buttons running down the front as well as a matching belt to cinch in the waist.

    Offsetting the statement trench, Kate completed her look with a pair of £525 green velvet Manolo Blahnik heels and some stunning sapphire and diamond earrings belonging to The Queen.

    PHILIP'S GRANDCHILDREN 'SORTED OUT QUITE A WHILE AGO'

    The insider claimed that Philip’s grandchildren, including Prince Harry who has launched a number of scathing attacks on the royal family in recent months, will have been “sorted out quite a while ago” when it came to money.

    They said: “Philip was not the sort of character to punish a grandson [Harry] for misbehaving. He was a very fair, even-handed and lovely man. Never held a grudge.”

    They added: “Philip had plenty of time to sort out all the legal stuff so it wouldn’t attract inheritance tax.  He was no more of a fan of leaving his cash to the Treasury than anyone else.”

    PRINCE PHILIP 'LEFT THREE STAFF MONEY IN £30M WILL'

    Prince Philip has paid a final thank you to the “three key men in his life by leaving them money in his will”, a royal insider has claimed.

    The Duke of Edinburgh left an estimated £30 million when he died of old age last month aged 99, just weeks before his 100th birthday.

    While the majority of his estate is likely to have been left to the Queen, a source close to Buckingham Palace claimed the duke has also rewarded his closest aides.

    “Unlike some other royals, Prince Philip will be generous to the three men who looked after him,” the insider exclusively told Fabulous.

    “These include his private secretary Brigadier Archie Miller Bakewell, his page William Henderson and valet Stephen Niedojadlo.”

    MEG ‘PUT OFF’ NANNIES AFTER INCIDENT WITH ‘IRRESPONSIBLE’ NIGHT NURSE

    The Sussexes were “put off” employing nannies after an incident with an “irresponsible” night nurse, Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie has said.

    “After Archie’s arrival, Harry and Meghan wanted some help to establish a sleep pattern. They hired a night nanny,” he told Channel 4’s A Very Royal Baby: From Cradle to Crown.

    “Whilst I can’t go into someone else’s employment details for legal reasons, it was an incident on one of the first nights that put the couple off from having a night nurse. Meghan and Harry were forced to let the nurse go in the middle of her second night for being unprofessional and irresponsible.”

    They tried out a second nanny, but according to Omid, “Neither found themselves comfortable sleeping through the night without going to check on Archie regularly.”

    They eventually employed a third, who helped them out “on a 9-5 basis” that turned out to be a “great working relationship”, before they moved to California.

    A source close to Meghan told DailyMail.com: “Meghan is the one who introduced Harry to the term ancestral healing.
