The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will start a two-day visit to Scotland with engagements focusing on mental health.

They will arrive in Glasgow where they will visit a project operated by The Wheatley Group. The duke and duchess will see first hand how the group is transforming the lives of vulnerable people and those at risk of homelessness.

William and Kate, known as the Earl and Countess of Strathearn in Scotland, will speak with service users who have benefitted from access to employment support to help mitigate the impact of poverty.

They will also visit a new-build property in the Kennishead area and hear about the importance of good-quality, secure housing.

Homelessness has been an important aspect of William’s work.

They will then visit Glasgow University where they will discuss mental health with staff and students before hearing about pioneering work being done by researchers at the school of Psychology and Neuroscience.

Both William and Kate will then meet members of the public outside of the university.

The engagements will form part of a UK-wide tour for the couple to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this year.
