Queen Elizabeth II
She attends a military parade in Scotland
The Queen also made an appearance on the second day of her trip to Scotland. After the key ceremony, there was a military parade.
During her stay in Scotland, Queen Elizabeth II (96) is very busy. She also attended an official ceremony on the second day after arriving in Edinburgh. A military parade took place in the gardens of Holyrood House, the Queen’s Scottish residence, on Tuesday June 28. With her cane, but visibly in good spirits, the 96-year-old watched the events under the title “The Armed Forces Act of Loyalty Parade”.
The ceremony began with a royal salute from the Queen, who chose a lavender dress for the occasion. A day earlier, Elizabeth II had also attended the key ceremony, the welcoming ceremony at her Scottish residence. According to corresponding British media, she took part in the official opening ceremony of the so-called Holyrood week with her youngest son, Prince Edward (58) and his wife, Countess Sophie (57).
Highlight of Holyrood’s journey without the Queen
Due to their limited mobility, their official appointments have only been announced a few hours in advance for some time now. The Queen is expected to stay in the Scottish capital until at least Friday.
The highlight of the Royal Week celebration will be the garden party at Holyrood House. However, it was announced in May that the Queen would not be attending. She is represented there by her heir to the throne, Prince Charles (73). The party organizers are their children Prince Charles, Princess Anne (71) and Prince Edward. Her third son, Prince Andrew, 62, is not welcome at the celebrations due to his involvement in the Epstein scandal.
