  • Prince William and Kate Middleton have started their three-day royal train tour of the UK, during which they will ‘pay tribute to the incredible work of individuals and organisations that have gone above and beyond in response to the coronavirus pandemic’.

    The couple met up with essential travel workers at Euston station last night, before boarding the train. They followed government guidelines by wearing face masks while chatting to people, with the Duchess re-using a floral mask she was first spotted wearing in September.

    Her outfit, as usual, was full of significance. With their first stop being Edinburgh, she opted to wear a tartan scarf by Yorke Scarves, which she also wore on the couple’s official tour of Canada.
