THE Queen is hoping to make her annual journey to Scotland for Holyrood Week though a last resolution has but to be made, Buckingham Palace has stated.
The monarch, 96, who’s going through ongoing mobility points, is planning to be in residence on the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh when different members of the royal household journey to Scotland to hold out engagements between June 27 and July 1.
In the course of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the Queen pledged to proceed to function monarch “to the most effective of my capacity supported by my household.”
The Queen’s kids the Prince of Wales, the Princess Royal and the Earl of Wessex – excluding the Duke of York who now not carries out public duties – can be joined by the Countess of Wessex to conduct a number of public appearances.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman stated: “The Queen hopes to journey to Scotland to be in residence on the Palace of Holyroodhouse for Royal Week, though selections can be taken nearer to the time.”
The traditional Ceremony of the Keys takes place on the forecourt of Holyroodhouse as a part of Holyrood Week, in any other case often known as Royal Week, every summer season.
As a part of the custom, the monarch is handed the keys of town, but it surely has not been confirmed whether or not the Queen or one other member of the royal household will attend the engagement.
The Queen is normally symbolically supplied the keys to town by the Lord Provost and custom dictates she then returns them, entrusting their safekeeping to Edinburgh’s elected officers.
