On Tuesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge traveled north to Dundee -- which means, of course, that we should properly call them the Earl and Countess of Strathearn.

Kate officially opened the new Victoria and Albert Museum in Dundee. It's Scotland's first design museum. More than 300,000 visitors have passed through the new building since its doors opened to the public in September.

For the occasion, Kate chose a classic pair of earrings from her jewelry box: her diamond and sapphire cluster drop earrings. (Learn more about them here!)

The earrings are a neat echo of Kate's famous sapphire and diamond engagement ring, which she was also of course wearing during the visit.

Meghan was clearly engaged during her visit. Although Meghan's career as a professional actress mainly included roles in film and television, she majored in theater and communication studies at Northwestern University.
