THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to pay their first joint visit to the city from which they take their title, Clarence House has confirmed.

After their wedding, the Queen awarded the title bearing the city’s name to Prince William and Kate.

Residents of Cambridge have since eagerly anticipated the couple’s first visit to the city.

Today, Clarence House issued a statement confirming November 28 “will mark the royal couple’s first official joint visit to Cambridgeshire as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge”.

The couple will undertake a series of engagements including visiting the city’s Guildhall and the Senate House, University of Cambridge, where they will attend a reception for about 400 people.

They will also be given a tour of Jimmy’s resettlement centre; watch a drama, music and dance presentation at The Manor School; and visit Peterborough City Hospital.

Cambridge residents have waited more than 18 months for a visit from the couple.
