A cheery-looking Queen has made her second public appearance in just two days as she continues her stay in Scotland.

This morning she attended the armed forces act of loyalty parade at the Palace of Holyroodhouse to mark her Platinum Jubilee north of the border.

The monarch, dressed in a lilac outfit with matching hat, waved to the crowds as she stood with the help of her walking stick.

The parade also included a presentation to the Queen of the key for Edinburgh Castle in the gardens of the palace.

All three forces – the army, navy and air force were represented and a royal salute took place as Her Majesty arrived in the gardens.

Lord Lyon, King of Arms, then presented three senior representatives from the services to the Queen.

They were joined by three cadets, representing each service, who paraded the key to Edinburgh Castle across the gardens before presenting it to Major General Alastair Bruce of Crionaich, Governor of Edinburgh Castle. The Major General will then address the Queen.

The act of loyalty and presentation of the key to Edinburgh Castle will mark the 200th anniversary of King George IV’s visit to Scotland in 1822.

Dressed in a powder blue silk wool coat and dress by Stewart Parvin, paired with a hat by Rachel Trevor-Morgan, the Queen stood with her walking stick as she was symbolically offered the keys to the city by Edinburgh Lord Provost Robert Aldridge.

It was the first public duty she has carried out since appearing on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the finale of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations just over three weeks ago.

She only took part in the private parts of Garter Day at Windsor two weeks ago and did not make any appearances at Royal Ascot.

It was reported last week that the monarch, who has been suffering from ongoing mobility issues, is planning to be in residence at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh all week.

However, it is thought she will now see how she feels each day before deciding if she will stay at the Palace of Holyroodhouse all week, as normal, and undertake further duties.
