Holyrood Week: Ceremony of the Keys

The Queen arrived at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh, at the start of her 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.

Yellow and blue begins another packed week for Her Maj, who's looking good after cancelling an appearance at a service for the Order of St Michael and St George last week because she didn't feel well. This is the start of Holyrood Week, her annual week of engagements in Scotland where she will be based at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.


To get things started, she went with her usual choice given this ceremony includes the military: the appropriate regimental badge.
