THE newly-crowned King and Queen will visit Selkirk on Thursday July 6 as part of a series of engagements in Scotland.

Each year the monarch traditionally spends a week based at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, known as Holyrood Week or Royal Week in Scotland.

There will be a special ceremony of thanksgiving at St Giles’ Cathedral on Wednesday  where His Majesty will be presented with the Honours of Scotland – the nation’s crown jewels.



The following day, Thursday July 6, the Royal couple will travel to the Scottish Borders and after visiting the Great Tapestry of Scotland visitor centre in Galashiels they will visit the Lochcarron of Scotland weaving mill.

Their Majesties will be given a tour of the mill and will learn about the company’s ethical and sustainable journey.
