Elsewhere, Edward donned a blue and orange tartan kilt, pairing it with a brown jacket and shirt. 

The couple’s visit comes after the the Queen was introduced to Scotland’s national drink Irn Bru as she kicked off a four-day Holyrood Week charm offensive today – just one month after Scottish media said sending ‘popular’ Prince William and Kate Middleton north of the border was a ‘shrewd move’.

Making her first official visit north of the border since the death of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, Her Majesty was given a tour of AG Barr’s factory in Cumbernauld, where the iconic soft drink is manufactured.

The 95-year-old monarch, who put on a stylish display in a blue ensemble complete with pearl necklace and white gloves, was joined by her grandson the Duke of Cambridge – known as the Earl of Strathearn in Scotland – as she officially opened the factory’s new process facility.

The Queen, who is in Scotland for Royal Week where she will be taking part in engagements celebrating community, innovation and history, also met employees and was given an overview of the history of the company. 

The visit comes just one month after Prince William and Kate Middleton embarked on a week-long tour of Scotland in May, which was dubbed a royal charm offensive to help persuade the country to resist the demands of nationalists for independence. 

Meanwhile, the Countess of Wessex being in the spotlight is what Prince Philip ‘would have wanted’ and helps to ‘keep his memory alive,’ a royal author has claimed.

Sophie has often been noted as the monarch’s ‘favourite’ family member and closest confidante and has reportedly been encouraged by the Queen to fill the gap left by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle following Megxit at the start of 2020. 

‘The Queen is very canny. And she has always been very fond of Sophie,’ Ingrid Seward said, speaking to The Times. 

‘Prince Philip adored Sophie, and the Queen feels that now is the moment to push her, just gently. “Give some interviews, do some stuff. You work very hard, no one takes any notice. Get out there!” I can see her saying that.

‘It’s what Prince Philip would have wanted, and now he is gone, doing what he would have wanted keeps his memory alive. I think he would have really liked Edward and Sophie to be a bit more high profile.’
