We are slowly but surely heading back to the pre-COVID Royal era. Today, Kensington Palace announced a week full of Royal engagements. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to visit Scotland from May 21 to May 27. The visit is coming after William’s appointment as Lord High Commissioner of the Church of Scotland.
Prince William will arrive in Scotland on Friday where he will be joined by his wife on Monday. The destinations include Edinburgh, Fife and Orkney. They will meet NHS workers to thank them for their hard work and will be visiting their first meeting place – St. Andrew’s University. As the patron of NHS charities, the royal couple will host NHS staff at a drive-in cinema to watch a screening of Disney’s Cruella at the Palace of Holyroodhouse. At St. Andrew’s they will meet with current students, and hear how they have coped and supported each other during a difficult year.
About the visit, Kensington Palace 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”.
Stay tuned for more updates and live coverage of the visit.
