The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS - Pic­ture: PA.

The Duchess of Cam­bridge was left stunned by the new en­trance to the Vic­to­ria and Al­bert Mu­seum in Lon­don, as she at­tended a cer­e­mony to open the £56.4 mil­lion Ex­hi­bi­tion Road Quar­ter. Kate mouthed “Wow” as she walked into the Sack­ler Court­yard – the world’s first all-porce­lain public court­yard, paved with 11,000 hand­made tiles in 15 dif­fer­ent pat­terns. She is shown re­ceiv­ing flow­ers from six-year-old Lydia Hunt, the daugh­ter of new di­rec­tor of the V&A mu­seum and for­mer Labour MP Tris­tram Hunt.
