Each year in June or July, Queen Elizabeth spends a week visiting various parts of Scotland, known across the country as “Royal Week” and to others as “Holy Week”. Although last year’s Royal Week was canceled due to the pandemic, this year’s event will be going full steam ahead. From Monday, June 28, the Queen will stay at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the sovereign’s official residence in Scotland, and tour the country. She will be joined by the Duke of Cambridge on Monday and the Princess Royal on Wednesday and Thursday. The Duke of Cambridge has his own special connection to the country, as he also counts the Earl of Strathearn as one of his royal titles – he and the Duchess of Cambridge visited Scotland last month on their own tour.

During the week, the Queen will visit Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling, and visit small businesses, charities and cultural institutions which, according to Buckingham Palace, “highlight the pioneering work underway to strengthen the community engagement, education, technology, and efforts to combat climate change. ”Although the Queen also normally hosts thousands of guests for one of her famous garden parties at the palace, the event of this year has been canceled, due to COVID-19 government guidelines.

While the event will not be as big as years past, it is shaping up to be a busy week for Queen Elizabeth, Prince William and Princess Anne. Below, find all the best photos of the Royal Family during Holyrood Week 2021.
