Holyrood Week: Arrival and Ceremony of the Keys

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh arrived at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh, at the start of their annual week of Scottish engagements. Her Majesty was presented with the Keys of the City which she returned in the traditional Ceremony of the Keys. A Guard of Honor mounted in the Forecourt of the Palace was reviewed.

Once again, the Royal Regiment of Scotland Badge is the pick for HM's official arrival in Edinburgh, where she will undertake a week of engagements in Scotland while based at the Palace of Holyroodhouse. That's all very appropriate, since she reviews troops during the ceremony. But just as I was ready to say this lavender outfit would be perfection with an amethyst brooch...


I saw that she already had me covered when she stepped off the train. Bless.
