Global News published this video item, entitled “Queen Elizabeth honoured by Armed Forces in Scotland, given key to Ediburgh Castle” – below is their description.

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II attended an Armed Forces Act of Loyalty Parade at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in the Scottish capital of Edinburgh on Tuesday, celebrating her reign.

The 96-year-old monarch, holding a walking stick, smiled and shook hands with several members of the armed forces, asking them questions about where they were based.

Elizabeth was also presented with the key to Edinburgh Castle to commemorate 200 years since the key was presented to George IV, and to commemorate 70 years of her sovereignty.

The parade followed the Ceremony of the Keys on Monday, which marked the queen’s first public appearance since nationwide celebrations for her Platinum Jubilee three weeks ago.
