Walking Rugby is intended to be simple version of Rugby suitable for ex-players and non-players.

The father-of-two seemed much more at home as he hosted a Gold Award Celebration on Friday in the gardens of the Palace of Holyroodhouse. 

Several engagements during Holyrood Week so far have seen the Queen represented by her children, the Prince of Wales, Princess Anne and Prince Edward, including at the garden party at the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the Order of the Thistle service.

It began with the Ceremony of the Keys at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh on Monday.

As a result of her mobility problems, the Queen has cut down on her public appearances, and before her visit to Scotland for Holyrood Week, was last seen during her Platinum Jubilee weekend earlier this month.

According to Buckingham Palace, Holyrood Week is a ‘chance for The Queen and Members of The Royal Family to visit various regions in Scotland, meet Scots from all walks of life and host thousands at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in recognition of their good work’.

During the ceremony, on the day of the Queen’s arrival, she was symbolically offered the keys to the City of Edinburgh by the Lord Provost. 

It comes after the prince attended a garden party yesterday at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, which recognises Scots’ good work in the community. 

Princess Anne and Prince Charles appeared at the party and posed for a family photo, alongside Sophie Wessex and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.
