Prince William, Prince Charles make rare joint appearance at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Prince William, Prince Charles make rare joint appearance at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo

Prince William and his father Prince Charles attend at night of pomp and pageantry at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. That was rather a rare joint appearance of Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Wales.

The night of pomp and pageantry at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo becomes an event where were attending the son and grandson of Queen Elizabeth II. Earlier, that public duty was a part of life for Duke of Edinburgh – the Tattoo attracts an annual audience of around 220,000. Since it began in 1949, more than 14 million people have attended the event.

Prince Charles who was wearing a full chest of medals and William have made a rare appearance together for the 68th annual military show at Edinburgh Castle.

The pair were seen tasting a dram of whisky to mark the opening of tonight’s section of the 68th annual military show at Edinburgh Castle, prompting a wince from the younger royal – who didn’t seem to enjoy the taste.

To mark his 58th birthday, Prince Charles was awarded four-star rank in each of the armed services – a general in the Army, admiral in the Navy and air chief marshal in the RAF. That’s why his presence at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo became a real event, the annual show is famous around the world for its display of massed bagpipe bands, fireworks and impressive light show effects.

The son of Queen has another title in Scotland – Duke of Rothesay, to welcome royal at the annual Edinburgh Tattoo show, the organisers rolled out the red carpet. His son Prince William also takes one more title – the Earl of Strathearn – in Scotland.
