It was up to Edinburgh today for the Duchess of Cambridge, as she undertook several engagements in the Scottish capital.

Wearing a dark green Max Mara coat over a houndstooth skirt and black turtleneck, Kate first visited St Catherine’s Primary School as part of her patronage of Place2Be, a children’s mental health charity. The Duchess accompanied the students in signing and performing the actions to the school’s “Welcome Everybody” song.

“Everybody should start their day like that,” Kate said with a smile.

It was over to Wester Hailes Education Centre to see the benefits of a program installed by another of her patronages, The Art Room. The charity uses artistic expression to help children and adolescents with their self-esteem and independence.

Her last event of the day was a tennis workshop led by Judy Murray, the mother of tennis champion Andy. The aim of the workshop – part of the Tennis on the Road program Ms Murray has instigated – was to show teachers and parents how to teach children the basics of the game.

“She was talking about at what age can a child hold a racquet…it’s about strength…doing the right thing at the right time,” Ms Murray said of her discussions with Kate, who is keen to get Prince George on to the court.
