The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at a drive-in cinema date at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Scotland in one of Prince Philip's Land Rovers in a touching tribute.

Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived in a 1966 2A model that belonged to Duke of Edinburgh and was especially loaned by the Queen to the royal couple for a unique event at the palace.

The excited pair, who are joint Patrons of NHS Charities Together, invited NHS Staff for an exclusive screening of Disney's Cruella, to mark their incredible work throughout the pandemic, reports PA.

Earlier in the day Prince William and Kate also took time to visit their old university town of St Andrews where they first met.

After parking up alongside NHS workers at the film screening the couple met some of the guests being recognised for their efforts during the pandemic.

Attendees came from across the NHS workforce in Scotland, having been nominated by NHS Charities Together's member organisations and their associated health boards.

In a speech Kate thanked the workers and told them: "Over the last year or so, William and I have spoken to many NHS workers and have heard first-hand what it has been like to be on the front line fighting Covid-19; supporting those suffering from the disease a well as their families, and heroically putting the needs of others ahead of their own – day in, day out.

"And tonight, we have so enjoyed speaking to so many of you.

"You have all been chosen for going above and beyond over the last year – and to hear what you have been through is truly humbling."

The duchess also thanked the Queen for allowing them to host the palace's first drive-in film.

Earlier in the week, William and Kate spoke via video call to two of the stars of the film, Emma Stone, who plays Cruella and Dame Emma Thompson, who plays her rival Baroness Von Hellman.

Footage from the call was shown on the big screen and saw the royal couple joking about the duke's popularity with an elderly lady he met at a care home on Sunday.

William said: "I got propositioned by a 96-year-old lady called Betty yesterday who wanted to kiss me.

"She's in a care home with her daughter and I said Betty, if I do that, I'm going to get slapped on the back of the head for being inappropriate… social distancing.

"And she said, 'I'll have you afterwards then'. She was a right character!

"This is what happens when I'm not around!" laughed Kate.

"I've got a window!" joked Emma Stone.
