Royal Family LIVE: Harry and Meghan could face major legal action over Netflix documentary


The King will be presented with the Honours of Scotland – the country’s Crown Jewels – when a Service of Thanksgiving and Dedication, dubbed a second Coronation, will be held in his honour later today.

Charles and Camilla will be commemorated at St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh during the event attended by leading figures from Scottish life and members of a people’s procession who will walk through the Scottish capital from around 1.15pm this afternoon.

The procession - featuring around 100 people from all aspects of Scottish life - will make its way along the Royal Mile, arriving at the historic kirk at about 1:30pm.

The Honours of Scotland - a crown, sword and sceptre - will be escorted from Edinburgh Castle to the kirk by The King's Body Guard for Scotland at 1.40pm.

A guard of honour formed by contingents of the Navy, Army and Royal Air Force will also accompany the Scottish Crown Jewels.

The King and Queen Camilla will leave Holyroodhouse for the kirk, in a separate royal procession, at 2.05pm.

They are expected to be joined by the Prince and Princess of Wales, who are known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland.

Then, during a national Service of Thanksgiving due to start at 2:15pm, the King will be presented with the Honours of Scotland.

The hour-long service will mix Scottish royal tradition with new music written especially for the occasion.
