Holyrood Week, Day 4: Order of the Thistle Service

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, accompanied by the Princess Royal and the Countess of Strathearn, attended a Thistle Service at St. Giles' Cathedral, Edinburgh for the installation of Prince William, Earl of Strathearn, as a Knight of the Thistle and attended a lunch as guests of the Knights of the Thistle.
It's just like Garter Day, only greener, and with more bagpipes.
