THE HAGUE (Reuters) - Britain's Duchess of Cambridge embarked on her first royal solo trip overseas on Tuesday, travelling to the Netherlands.

Greeted by children waving Dutch and British flags, Prince William's wife Kate visited The Hague's Mauritshuis museum, where an exhibition of paintings by 17th-century Dutch artists is on loan from the British Royal Collection.

She also met King Willem-Alexander and attended a roundtable discussion on addiction and mental health held at the British ambassador's residence.
