"I am delighted that Prince William has agreed to be Patron of our 600th Anniversary Appeal," St. Andrews Principal and Vice-Chancellor Professor Louise Richardson announced on the school's website. "Anniversaries are a time for reflection, celebration, and for action. St. Andrews has much to celebrate and so much still to achieve."

During their visit, the couple, who met at St. Andrews when they attended between 2001 and 2005, will meet with students and staff and will unveil a plaque at the St. Salvator residence hall. They will also attend a reception and view the Papal Bull.

'We hope that Prince William and Miss Middleton are the first among many who will reconnect with St. Andrews and join in the celebrations," Richardson said.
