The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall proved themselves to be tartan traditionalists while on royal duty in Scotland.

The couple — known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay— visited the Ballater Community & Heritage Hub in Ballater, Aberdeenshire.

They were given a tour and unveiled a plaque to commemorate the opening the hub before visiting local shops and businesses during a short walk through the village.

Their trip to Scotland coincided with the 24th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales in a Paris car crash.

The princess — the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex’s late mother — was just 36 was she was killed on August 31 1997.

Nearly a quarter of a century on from Diana’s shock death, the statue commissioned by William and Harry was finally unveiled last month.

Well-wishers are able to view the statue at Kensington Palace on Tuesday.

Historic Royal Palaces made special arrangements to allow visitors access to the Cradle Walk around the Sunken Garden between 3pm to 5pm for the anniversary.

Due to the pandemic, the area is only usually accessible to the public from Wednesdays to Sundays.
