Royal family at ceremony in Edinburgh

By Catriona Webster

The Queen has been joined by the Duke of Cambridge and the Princess Royal at a special ceremony in Edinburgh.

She attended the Thistle Service at St Giles' Cathedral at the end of a week of official engagements in Scotland.

The ceremony installed businessman and philanthropist Sir Ian Wood and Sir Richard Scott, the Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry, as new Knights of the Order of the Thistle.

Hundreds lined Edinburgh's Royal Mile to catch a glimpse of the Royal Family.

A guard of honour was mounted at the cathedral door by the Royal Company of Archers, the Queen's bodyguard for Scotland, while the band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland played in West Parliament Square.

The Prince of Wales visited Ysgol San Sior Primary School in Llandudno, Wales to learn about its proactive environmental programme.
