Best Moments from Prince William and Kate Middleton's tour of Scotland

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have just enjoyed a week-long tour of Scotland, where Prince William carried out his role as Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

There were plenty of highlights from their trip, including a walk down memory lane as William and Kate visited the University of St Andrews where they first met as first-year students 20 years ago.

The couple are renowned for their love of sports and there were plenty of action shots, as the Duke enjoyed a kickabout and when the Duchess joined him on the tour, they couldn't help but get competitive.

Take a look at the best photos from the Cambridges' visit to Scotland…

Duke vs Duchess! The couple couldn't stop laughing as they raced land yachts across West Sands Beach in St Andrews, but it was William who proved the winner, much to his delight.

Back to where it all started! The Duke and Duchess returned to the University of St Andrews where they first fell in love. The night before their visit, the couple even enjoyed a date night at Forgan's restaurant in the town.

"There was a crowd outside once they left but as far as inside goes it was quiet," said manager Marc, who declined to give his last name.

"There was no pomp and ceremony or fanfare, they were very nice and when they left they were very complimentary."

For the event itself, Kate debuted a pair of the Queen's earrings for the first time. She borrowed diamond and sapphire earrings from the Dubai Looped Sapphire Demi-Parure, which was gifted to Her Majesty during her Middle East tour in 1979..

On the final day of their visit, the couple took part in a gardening session with Fields In Trust and spoke to families at Starbank Park in Edinburgh.

Kate was spotted cooing over nine-month-old Penelope Stewart.

Her mother, Natalie Randamy said: "We were just talking about Penny sleeping through. They were reminiscing about nine months being a bit of a game-changer for them. Kate was saying Charlotte has the same dress from Next as Penny but just in a bigger size."

The Duchess kept her promise to a little girl who wanted to meet a princess dressed in her favourite colour pink.

Kate proved true to her word when she invited little Mila Sneddon and her family to the Palace of Holyrood - the Queen's official Edinburgh home - and wore a ME+EM outfit that matched the five-year-old's dress.

The outgoing little girl, who is battling cancer, has captured the Duchess' heart – and when they met she told the youngster she wanted to give her a "big squeezy cuddle".

Little Mila starred in Kate's Hold Still photography project and the pair first spoke over the phone last year when the Duchess made her promise.

During his speech at the Closing Ceremony of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Duke paid tribute to the people that had met during their trip, saying: "These people make Scotland the vibrant, friendly, innovative and determined place Catherine and I love and is so important to us. I am shaped by this place.

"The abiding affection I feel for it is rooted in my experience of its everyday life - in people, relationships, and its ethic of neighbourliness."
