A post on Anstruther Fish Bar’s Facebook page read: ‘We can hardly believe it’s been nearly 20 years since we last had the honor of baking some Scottish haddock and chips for our then regulars, Prince William and Catherine Middleton, while they were. students at St Andrews University.

Fast-forward to this afternoon and you can imagine our excitement as we had the privilege of welcoming the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (or, to give them their official Scottish titles … The Earl and Countess of Strathearn) back at Anstruther Fish Bar.

“Their Royal Highnesses have been to the East Neuk of Fife today and surprised us by concluding their visit with a fish takeaway, as the Duchess told us, a delightful trip down memory lane.

They enjoyed the whole takeout experience, like most visitors to Anstruther, sitting on a bench by the harbor, no doubt keeping an eye out for the local, hungry gulls!

Before heading back to their waiting helicopter, they stopped by for an ice cream and to chat with some of our enthusiastic staff.

“The Duke thanked us for the fish and chips and told Andrew they were just as good, if not better, than he remembered from college.”

Later, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted NHS Charities Together and NHS staff for a unique drive-in cinema to see a special screening of Disney’s Cruella at the palace – where they stay – on the penultimate day of their week-long visit to Scotland. .

Before the screening, Kate gave a short speech in which she paid tribute to NHS staff across Scotland and thanked them for their dedication, dedication and personal sacrifice.

She said: “As joint patrons of NHS Charites Together, William and I are absolutely delighted that so many of you were able to join us here tonight. We would like to thank you for the extraordinary dedication, dedication and personal sacrifice you have shown in supporting our communities during this pandemic.

‘It is a privilege to partner with NHS Charities Together. For the past 13 years, it has worked tirelessly to improve patient services and support NHS staff and volunteers, both practically and emotionally. Today this work has never been more important.

So with a huge thank you to Her Majesty the Queen for hosting the very first drive-in movie night here in Holyrood. And with a huge thank you to Disney and BAFTA for putting it on this evening, and to the fantastic actress Tipper for joining us tonight, William and I invite you to grab your popcorn, under your covers. crawl and transported to 1970s Britain for an evening of well-deserved fun, drama, glamor and escapism! ‘
