NORTHERN EXPOSURE: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge traveled to Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday to view the grounds for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The visit is part of a two-day tour of Scotland, where the royal couple is known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn. The duchess wore a flared blue and gray plaid coat from the British brand Moloh for the tour of the Emirates Arena where the couple also watched pole-vaulters, badminton players and a netball match and cyclists practicing at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.
They will also visit the Dumfries House in Ayrshire, the 18th-century mansion that was purchased — along with its contents and adjoining land — by a consortium led by the Prince of Wales in June 2007. Charles will join the royal couple for the launch of the Manoukian Foundation’s outdoor center for youth services and schools. The couple’s next stop will be Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria where they will learn about the new Astute Class of nuclear submarines built by BAE Systems for the Royal Navy.
