The Queen also made an appearance on the second day of her trip to Scotland. After the Ceremony of the Keys there was a military parade.

During her stay in Scotland, Queen Elizabeth II (96) is very busy. She also attended a formal ceremony on the second day after her arrival in Edinburgh. A military parade was held in the gardens of Holyrood House, the Queen’s Scottish residence, on Tuesday (28 June). With her walking stick, but obviously in a good mood, the 96-year-old watched the goings-on 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. Just a day earlier, Elizabeth II also attended the Ceremony of the Keys, the welcoming ceremony at her Scottish residence. According to corresponding British media reports, she took part in the official opening ceremony of the so-called Holyrood week together with her youngest son Prince Edward (58) and his wife, Countess Sophie (57).

Highlight of the Holyrood voyage 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 celebratory highlight of the royal week is to be the garden party at Holyrood House. However, it was announced in May that the Queen would not be attending. There she is represented by her heir to the throne, Prince Charles (73). The organizers of the party 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.
