Prince William And Kate Return To St Andrews

St Andrews University will be presenting a scholarship in honour of Prince William and his fiance Kate Middleton later when they pay a visit to launch the uni's 600th Anniversary Campaign.

The scholarship will have a value of up to £70,000 and will meet the costs of tuition, if payable, accommodation and living expenses for a four-year undergraduate degree in science, arts, medicine or divinity.

It will be open to applicants of all nationalities and will be awarded annually to a student who would have been unable to attend St Andrews without such financial support.

The appearance is the couple's first official engagement in Scotland ahead of their wedding on April 29th.

About 600 staff and students will greet William and his fiancee in the historic St Salvator's Quadrangle, where the Prince will unveil a plaque to mark the launch of the 600th Anniversary.

It will be a trip down memory lane for the couple, who studied history of art together and shared a house in the town.

William graduated in 2005 with a 2:1 honours degree in geography after switching subjects, while Miss Middleton achieved the same award in history of art.

It is not known exactly when they became a couple, but it is rumoured to be around Christmas 2003.

They got engaged while on holiday in Kenya in October last year.
