Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were greeted by music from The Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Scotland on their visit to Edinburgh Castle yesterday.

They also visited a cafe that employs the homeless, and ended their day with a reception celebrating youth achievement at Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s Scottish palace.

It marks the first time a Royal Marines band has performed for Prince Harry since he was officially appointed as the new Captain General Royal Marines before Christmas.

The band entertained the crowds who had gathered to watch the couple’s arrival, as they walked up the esplanade to meet members of the public as they embarked on their tour of Edinburgh.

Captain Matt Weites, the Director of Music for the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Scotland, said:

“We’ve played Edinburgh Castle many times before, but this was a truly unique experience to play for Prince Harry in his first official capacity as the new Captain General Royal Marines.

“We hope we contributed to a warm Edinburgh welcome to the couple, despite the cold weather.”
