Will and Kate take ‘trip down memory lane’ to visit their old student chippy

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stopped off to enjoy a nostalgic chippy dinner at one of their old favourite student takeaways in Scotland.

Prince William and Kate delighted locals when they returned to St Andrews, where they met as students 20 years ago.

The couple popped by the coastal town of Anstruther to enjoy a takeaway from Anstruther Fish Bar, where they were ‘regular customers’ while studying at St Andrews University.

Shocked staff said they remembered serving the royals ‘when they were just Catherine and William’, with the duchess telling them it was a little ‘trip down memory lane’ for them.

Many locals tried to get a glimpse of Kate and Will as they tucked into paper-wrapped haddock while sat on a bench on the pier.

Before heading back to their helicopter to go to the Palace of Holyroodhouse to host a screening of Disney’s Cruella for NHS staff, they popped back in for some ice cream and a catch up with ‘thrilled staff’.

Anstruther Fish Bar shared details of the surprise visit, saying they could ‘hardly believe it’s almost 20 years’ since they had the ‘honour’ of frying up some Scottish haddock and chips for the pair.

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

‘Their Royal Highnesses have been in the East Neuk of Fife today and surprised us by ending their visit with a takeaway fish supper, which the Duchess told us, was a lovely “trip down memory lane”.

‘They enjoyed the whole takeaway experience, as most visitors to Anstruther do, sitting on a bench by the harbour, while no doubt keeping a watchful eye out for the local, hungry seagulls!”

‘The Duke thanked us for the fish and chips and made a point on telling Andrew that they were just as good, if not better than he remembered from his student days,’ the takeaway added.

Sharing images on Facebook, Brackness House Luxury B&B said it was great to see the couple back in Anstruther ‘enjoying themselves’.

The local B&B said: ‘They were so relaxed and looked just like locals as they wandered around the town, and of course, taking in a tasty fish supper from the world’s best Anstruther Fish Bar (just as they did regularly when they were both students in St. Andrews).’ 

Another local, who came prepared with a Union flag displaying William and Kate’s faces, was delighted when the couple stopped to chat to her on their way to grab an ice cream cone.

Irene Bett said they were ‘both lovely’ and described them as ‘such a natural couple’.

The Cambridges arrived in St Andrews on Tuesday evening and enjoyed a private date night dinner at Forgan’s restaurant, before setting off on a jam-packed day of royal engagements the following morning.

They toured the grounds of St Andrews University and met students, before driving to the coastal village of Pittenweem to meet fishermen and their families.
