According to The Sunday Times palace officials want the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall to be a symbol of the combined nations reflected through a united monarchy.

A royal household source said: "They think of it as their Union. It was originally a union of crowns. They think the politicians have been losing Scotland for them.

"What William is doing is a deliberately more muscular approach to the crown investing in the relationship with Scotland.”

In practice William and Kate would spend more time at Balmoral, the Royal Family's holiday home, and for it to become more like a second residency rather than just somewhere they visit.

Many believe that Prince William is the Queen's secret weapon for keeping the UK together.

Speaking in Edinburgh at the closing ceremony of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, William said about some of the memorable individuals he had met: "These people make Scotland the vibrant, friendly, innovative and determined place Catherine and I love, and is so important to us."

The duke who is the assembly's Lord High Commissioner added: "I'm shaped by this place.

"The abiding affection I feel for it is rooted in my experience of its everyday life in people, relationships, and its ethic of neighbourliness."
