Thursday’s anticipation and arrival of the Royal family in presenting Prince William as a Knight of the Thistle was the highlight of my visit to Edinburgh, Scotland.
No words can describe the energy of the crowd gathering on the Royal Mile and so I took these photos to help illustrate the royal occasion.
The crowd eventually dwindled away as the ceremony ended. I was not as fortunate to be in front of the onlookers, but it was just as fascinating to feel the movement and vibrancy of respect that the United Kingdom has for its Royalty. I still can feel the silence as I share this with you.
One of my flatmates, Sara Liming did manage to take some glorious photography of the Queen and Kate riding in their cars.
