LONDON (AFP) - Britain's Prince William and his wife Catherine visited the university city that is home to their dukedom on Wednesday for the first time since they were given their official titles.

The royal couple, who were given the titles the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they married last year, received an ecstatic welcome from hundreds of people who started lining the streets in the early hours of the morning.

The royal couple arrived in the city in eastern England by train and were driven through the crowd before visiting Cambridge's prestigious university and a homeless charity.

While on their visit, the couple will open a 24-hour support centre for rough sleepers run by the charity Jimmy's.
