King Charles and Queen Camilla were accompanied by the Prince and Princess of Wales to participate in a National Service of Thanksgiving and Dedication held at St Giles' Cathedral. This event is considered the Scottish equivalent of a coronation for the monarch.
During the ceremony, Prince Charles, aged 74, was presented with the Honours of Scotland, which are the Crown Jewels. Prince William, accompanied by his wife Princess Kate, was present at the service to witness the proceedings.
In addition to being the Prince and Princess of Wales, Prince William and Princess Kate also hold the titles of the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay. Therefore, their presence at the event was deemed appropriate and fitting.
The Crown, the Sceptre, and the Sword of State were transported to the cathedral by car under the protection of military guards.
Here are the best photos of Prince William and his wife Princess Kate…
The Princess looked stunning wearing a coat dress created by Catherine Walker, one of her preferred designers. She complemented the elegant ensemble with a matching hat designed by Philip Treacy. Additionally, she carefully coordinated her bag and heels to harmonize with her outfit.
Observant fans may have recognized the Princess's necklace, as it belongs to the collection of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
Meanwhile, William appeared incredibly sharp in his RAF No1 Uniform, embellished with medals and a ceremonial cloak. He also proudly displayed the ‘Lesser George' sash badge.
During the ceremony, as it unfolded, the Princess picked up a hymn sheet and joined the congregation in singing.
What medals is William wearing?
The medals prominently displayed on William's chest represent significant milestones, including the Golden Jubilee, Diamond Jubilee, Platinum Jubilee, and the Coronation Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle Mantle and Collar, featuring the ‘St Andrew' emblem.
To commence Royal Week, the King and Queen began their activities on Monday. Charles took part in the Ceremony of the Keys at the palace and later joined former sailors on board the Royal Yacht Britannia to commemorate its 25th anniversary since arriving in Edinburgh.
