The Queen was on top form on Tuesday as she attended the Act of Loyalty parade at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

The Queen, 96, looked happy and healthy yesterday as she continued to carry out royal engagements in Scotland as part of her continued Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Her Majesty attended a parade of the armed forces on Tuesday, held at The Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.

For the event, named the Act of Loyalty parade, the Queen looked splendid in a beautiful lilac coat and matching hat.

The Monarch beamed as she watched the parade, holding a walking stick in the hands for added support.

During the event, the Queen met with serving military personnel and cadets before she was presented with the keys to Edinburgh Castle.

This event marks 200 years since George IV visited Scotland in 1822 and was presented with the castle key for the first time.
