The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in Orkney on Tuesday (25 May), as they continued their royal tour of Scotland.

The couple were all smiles as they arrived to officially open Balfour Hospital in Kirkwall. They spent time chatting with NHS staff, hearing more about their experiences during the pandemic.

Will and Kate dressed up smart for their first appearances of the day, with the duchess choosing a tonal camel outfit.

The royal wore a tailored camel coat over on-trend wide-leg trousers in a similar shade, completing the look with a very fitting tartan scarf. Her highlighted hair was worn in an elegant half-up, half-down 'do.

As part of their action-packed day, the Cambridges also headed to the European Marine Energy Centre, which saw them venture out to sea on a tidal energy turbine.

During the visit, they heard more about the centre's efforts to help tackle climate change through renewable energy.

Prince William has been in Scotland since Friday (21 May), with Kate joining her husband on Monday (24 May). Their joint section of the royal tour kicked off with a visit to Turning Point Scotland, a social care charity in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire.

Scotland is, of course, a special place for the royal couple, as they met while studying together at university in St Andrews.
