HM The Queen and Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay attended the opening ceremony for the sixth session of The Scottish Parliament at Holyrood today.

There was a small crowd outside who let out an audible sigh of disappointment when neither Her Majesty or Prince Charles turned to acknowledge them, before the car left to return to The Palace of Holyroodhouse.
