The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the Queen’s home, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, as part of their Scottish trip during the week.

 

During their visit, Prince William and Kate Middleton stopped in Edinburgh and Fife – but the Duke had already sets off on 21 May, a few days before his wife joined him on 24th of May.

When they reunited, the royal couple hosted a very special cinema screening at Her Majesty’s Edinburgh residence. William and Kate invited Scottish NHS staff to a drive-in cinema to watch the latest Disney film, Cruella.

The Palace of Holyroodhouse is one of the monarch’s two properties in Scotland – the other being Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire.

The former is where the Queen and her late husband Prince Philip have previously hosted formal receptions including state visits, ceremonies and garden parties during the summer.

When Her Majesty is not in residence, it is open to the public – although it was closed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Royal Collection Trust recently announced the exciting news that it has once again opened its doors to visitors by sharing a stunning image of the property on Instagram. Taken at sunset, the grand exterior of the gothic 12th-century Abbey looked simply breathtaking against the backdrop of the pale blue sky.

“The Palace of Holyroodhouse, as well as the Abbey and The Queen’s Gallery reopened to visitors today, 26 April 2021,” the caption read.

Kate and William’s visit to Scotland will also see the couple meet with frontline workers, emergency responders, volunteers and the military – and they will even return to St Andrews University, where the couple first met.

A Kensington Palace spokesperson said: “The Duke is honoured to be fulfilling the role of Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland this year.

“Both he and The Duchess are very much looking forward to spending time in Scotland, hearing from a wide range of people on the issues they care about, and celebrating individuals who have gone above and beyond to support their communities over the past year.”
