Ahead of the visit a Kensington Palace spokesperson said: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to be visiting Dundee on Friday. Their Royal Highnesses, who first met while at the nearby University of St Andrews, are very much looking forward to returning to the region and having the opportunity to meet people from the city."
The couple spent last night at the Old Course Hotel in St. Andrews. No doubt a chance to recall happy memories from the early years of their courtship.
The couple had the opportunity to meet locals during a walkabout.
Kate told a group of students she was a regular visitor to Dundee during her time at St Andrews "I have very fond memories of coming to Dundee when I was a student". The couple also revealed they tried Scottish dancing at university but admitted they "weren't very good at it".
There was a large turnout from members of the public who were eager to meet the royals.
Whilst chatting talk turned to Kate's thoughts on William's motorbike.

It's been a busy week for the couple who played a formal role in a state visit for the first time - attending the state banquet on Tuesday and a creative industry event on Wednesday. Afterwards they hosted a private reception for members of the media. Kate received Dr Nicholas Cullinan upon assuming his appointment as director of her patronage the National Portrait Gallery. The Duchess also received the former chief executive of Action on Addiction, Nick Barton, and his successor Graham Beech.
The day kicked off with a visit to Dundee Repertory Theatre where the couple met families participating in one of the theatre's popular Family Fun Day programmes. They met the cast and crew of 'In Her Shadows', a visual performance that explores a young woman's relationship with the complexity of her depression whilst challenging the stigmas that surround it.
The dance-mindscape features aerial and physical theatre which is supported by stunning projections and haunting music. Two female performers tell the story of a young woman called Amy. After being overseas for years, she returns home to Scotland to find a new place to settle down in. With the unexpected rejection from her mum, Amy is tested, pushed and thrown into her own mental turmoil.

The Earl and Countess will meet young people participating in a workshop with See Me, a group working to end mental health discrimination in Scotland.
Next, Their Royal Highnesses visited The Corner and participated in an anti-bullying workshop.
The Corner, offers a range of physical and mental health services for young people, many of them peer-led. Support, advice and help is offered in a range of areas including mental and sexual health, drugs, smoking, alcohol and exam stress. It is an invaluable resource for young people who can share their concerns in a confidential space.
The couple had the opportunity to take in a little sightseeing as they are given a tour of one of the best-known landmarks in Dundee: the RRS Discovery.
It is described as the ultimate day out with visitors given the chance to "climb aboard Captain Scott's ship RRS Discovery where you will follow in the footsteps of him and his crew, see how they lived, what they ate and witness their hardships and their triumphs. It's a fascinating tale of one of the most heroic voyages of exploration ever undertaken".
More from the Evening Telegraph:
'The RRS Discovery sits in a dry dock on the Waterfront right next to the site of the planned V&A museum. It offers a glimpse of the city’s past alongside its future.
The ship — a research vessel captained by Robert Falcon Scott during an expedition to the Antarctic in 1901 — is undergoing extensive restoration work to fix ageing fittings and correct some of the finer details.'
A great shot of William and Kate.
They met with staff and crew members.

Finally, the Earl and Countess visited Abertay University where they will met students involved in BAFTA's Young Game Designers Programme.
William is president of BAFTA and their deputy communications secretary Nick Loughran told the Evening Telegraph the invite the couple received to Abertay University was "happily accepted" and the couple then decided to take the opportunity to see more of Dundee, before adding: "Supporting the mental wellbeing of young people is a major priority."

Kate chose a bespoke slim fitted dogtooth wool tailored coat and mini dogtooth wool kilt by Scottish designer Christopher Kane. The blue belted coat is a striking colour and impeccably tailored. We've seen Kate opt for Mr. Kane's designs several times now. The coat is very much a 'classically Kate piece'.
A closer look at the fabric.
Kate wore a black turtleneck with her kilt.

Kate sported her Aquatalia Rhumba Boots. As we recently mentioned the weatherproof boots have been discontinued, however there are still very limited sizes available at Neiman Marcus Last Call and Lord and Taylor.
The Aquatalia Damara Boots are the updated version of the Rhumba - retailing for $725 at Nordstrom.
The Countess carried her black suede Muse clutch and gloves.
