With the embossed “official” invitations in our hands along with our photo ID’s we headed to Holyrood Palace for the Queen’s annual garden party in Edinburgh yesterday.
Thankfully the weather improved and for the most part the sun shone – and the rain stayed away.
We joined several hundred other invited guests in the shadow of the impressive Holyrood palace and watched Her
Majesty and the rest of her royal group emerge from her Scottish residence.
As well as some superb sandwiches and cakes, pomp and circumstance were the orders of the day and the afternoon was all highly entertaining and enjoyable.
We secured good vantage points to see the Queen performing her duties during the afternoon.
Aside from the Queen, we bumped into some other people we knew – several dentists and a couple of my patients.
