Now here's a neat piece of travel planning: Prince William and Kate Middleton have made their way to their namesake city for their first official royal visit. And homecoming.

Yes, the Cambridges are in Cambridge.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge—along with the latter's all-new bangs—paid an official visit to the English city today, being greeted upon their arrival (via train) by hundreds of local well-wishers.

The 30-year-olds were met at the station by the well-titled Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire and his wife, and quickly began their official business, making their way to the Senate House at Guildhall, where they spent a respectable amount of time spent greeting fans, posing for photos and receiving flowers, before beginning their tour.

While in town, the royal pair also mingled with some Cambridge University students at an afternoon reception. Ever the style queen, the duchess wore a pair of her trusty LK Bennett shoes for the visit, but covered up her no-doubt-enviable frock with a cream belted Max Mara coat.

All in all, it's just the latest stop for the royals in what's turning out to be a rather busy week. Over the weekend, the couple visited Welsh rugby players, yesterday Kate hit up London's Natural History Museum, and tomorrow she's due to return to her alma mater, St. Andrews University in Scotland, for yet another visit.

And, it follows, a wardrobe ogling free-for-all.
