Princess Anne steps in for Royal Scots farewell march

THE Princess Royal is to take the salute from hundreds of soldiers past and present at an emotional “farewell march” to the Royal Scots.

More than 500 serving soldiers and veterans are expected to bring the city centre to a standstill for the parade, marking the end of the Edinburgh regiment’s proud 373-year history. Princess Anne, the Colonel in Chief of the regiment, will watch the spectacle from the steps of the Royal Scottish Academy on Friday, May 26. for more click here
