Camilla Presents Medals To 3 Rifles During Edinburgh Visit

It was the Duchess's first visit to the regiment's Scottish-based battalion since replacing Prince Philip as the Rifles' Colonel-In-Chief.

The Duchess of Rothesay has presented medals to soldiers from 3 Rifles during a visit to their Edinburgh base.

Camilla took over as Colonel-in-Chief of the Rifles from Prince Philip last year, with this trip her first visit to the regiment's Scottish-based battalion since taking up the position.

She also spoke to some families of the troops at Dreghorn Barracks in the Scottish capital.

The visit comes on a busy day of royal engagements for the Duchess ahead of the weekend's state opening of the Scottish Parliament.
