Here's the view from Edinburgh Castle today, the Scott Monument on the left, the clock tower of the Balmoral hotel on the right, Calton Hill behind it, and beyond, the Firth of Forth and the sea. Glorious weather!
We were up at the castle on the Battery to watch the 21 gun salute in honour of HRH Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh's birthday, as it was commanded by Son-of-Cornflower (that's him with the red sash and the sword).
Every step of the procedure was carried out with typical precision, and special guests and tourists alike enjoyed the spectacle which included a military band and inspection of the firing party in addition to the salute itself.
Will's sisters were not there to hear him addressed as 'Sir', but there will no doubt be some gentle ribbing when they see him later, and though it's not obvious from the pictures, that sword was subject to hours of polishing.
