King and Queen Consort visit Dunfermline

The King and Queen consort will hold their first public engagements together since the end of royal mourning by visiting Dunfermline on Monday to mark the former town becoming a town.

Charles and Camilla are welcomed to Dunfermline in Fife by community groups including a local bagpipe band and school children.

You will attend an official council meeting in the City Chambers, where the King will formally celebrate the granting of city status to Dunfermline and make a short speech.

After the ceremony, they visit Dunfermline Abbey to mark its 950th anniversary and meet with representatives from Historic Scotland to learn about the area’s history and the site’s conservation.

Eight locations have gained city status as part of the late monarch’s platinum jubilee celebrations.

Dunfermline’s bid for status was based on its heritage and historical status as the ancient seat of royal power, but also as one of the fastest growing cities in Europe.

The King and his wife will also host a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh on Monday to celebrate Britain’s South Asian communities.

They will join between 200 and 300 guests from across the UK who are of British Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Nepalese, Bhutanese and Maldivian descent.

The event will recognize the contributions made by many from these communities to the National Health Service, the arts, media, education, business and the armed forces.

Charles will also hold an investiture ceremony for a small group of local people, his first as king.
