Following a week-long royal visit to Scotland with Prince William, Kate Middleton has thanked the country for it's hospitality with a thank you card that she designed herself.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who paid tribute to her three children with a personalised necklace, drew a sketch of Scotland on the postcard.

Sharing it on their official twitter account, Prince William, 38, and Kate, 39, penned: "To all the people, communities and organisations we visited and heard from; and those who stopped to wave and make our return to Scotland so special – thank you!"

The pair ended their tour on Wednesday, with William giving a farewell speech to culminate the royal visit.

William and Kate had actually first met for the very first time 20 years ago at St Andrews University, and he spoke of his joy about being able to return.

"It was wonderful to be back in St Andrews and walk down memory lane together," he shared.

Speaking in Edinburgh at the closing ceremony of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, William continued: "These people make Scotland the vibrant, friendly, innovative and determined place Catherine and I love, and is so important to us.

"I'm shaped by this place. The abiding affection I feel for it is rooted in my experience of its everyday life in people, relationships, and its ethic of neighbourliness."

Prince William arrived in Scotland a week ago and was later joined by Kate as they carried out their Royal duties.

When he first arrived in Scotland, he spoke about how he had good and bad memories from being in the country.

The monarch, who enjoyed fish and chips at a restaurant with Kate, admitted that he was in Balmoral when he first found about his mother Princess Diana's death.

He said: "In short, Scotland is the source of some of my happiest memories. But, also my saddest.

"I was in Balmoral when I was told that my mother had died. Still in shock, I found sanctuary in the service at Crathie Kirk that very morning.

"And in the dark days of grief that followed, I found comfort and solace in the Scottish outdoors.

"As a result, the connection I feel to Scotland will forever run deep. And yet alongside this painful memory, is one of great joy," William concluded.
