Visit to the Memorial by The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh - 3 July 2014
Summer 2014 was an especially busy time for the Trustees and staff of the Memorial, as the Centenary of the outbreak of World War One approached. The highlight of the period was the visit to the Memorial, on 3 July 2014, of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, who attended the Annual Service during which the Colours of The Highlanders, 4th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland were laid up. After a Reception held in The Great Hall of Edinburgh Castle, the Queen opened a Memorial Garden. Photographs and a video of this very special occasion are available for viewing below.
