Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to visit the place where they fell in love as they embark on a seven-day tour of Scotland next week.
The Duke of Cambridge, 38, will travel to Scotland on Friday, and Kate, 39, will join him for the remainder of the visit on Monday.
"The Duke is honoured to be fulfilling the role of Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland this year,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said.
Both he and the duchess are very much looking forward to spending time in Scotland, hearing from a wide range of people on the issues they care about, and celebrating individuals who have gone above and beyond to support their communities over the past year."
The couple are expected to visit Fife, Edinburgh, and make their first official trip to Orkney together.
Sparks flew for the royal couple when they were both students at St Andrews University in Fife, Scotland, and they are set to return to meet students and speak with them about how they coped during the pandemic.
The official trip to Scotland takes place on the twentieth anniversary of when Prince William met wife Kate Middleton.
A classmate of theirs, Laura Warshauer, recently spoke to People magazine about the obvious attraction between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
She said: “Whenever Kate was in the room, Will was obviously paying attention to her. When we'd be sitting at lunch in the dining hall and the two of them would be talking, it was amazing to see how natural it was, how they had so much to say to each other. Looking back, there were all these small moments—certainly moments where I was like, 'Wow, this could really be something.'”
They will spend their time thanking emergency workers who have been on the frontlines during the Covid-19 pandemic, with William inviting emergency responders to watch the Scottish Cup Final with him at a rooftop bar.
Ceremonial duties set to be performed by William in his role as Lord High Commissioner include speeches at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

The couple will attend various projects that aim to combat climate change, in preparation for the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow later in the year.
One such project, Fields in Trust, was supported by the late Duke of Edinburgh for 64 years until he passed the mantel to grandson William.
Fields in Trust helps protect green spaces for communities in the UK.
