The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay have visited the University's School of Textiles and Design at the Scottish Borders Campus.

In the Duke's capacity as Patron of the Campaign for Wool, Their Royal Highnesses met with students and staff and viewed a range of techniques including weaving, knitting and fashion and interior design, as well as viewing the 2013 Degree Show.

During the tour of the Campus, His Royal Highness also met with local farmers and shepherds.

Professor Steve Chapman, Principal of Heriot-Watt, said, "We were delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses and to show them some of the stunning and creative works which our students have produced.

"The new, co-located Scottish Borders Campus was opened by The Princess Royal in 2009, and we were very pleased to be able to demonstrate to Their Royal Highnesses how the new campus continues to support and inspire new generations of students, working in both traditional and the most modern of techniques."
