  • Description

    Full title reads: "Scotland. The Duke of Rothesay. H.R.H. The Prince of Wales - whose oldest Scottish title it is - receives Freedom of the ancient & famous Burgh."

    Scotland.

    Nice shots of Prince Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor) wearing a Scottish hat chatting to local dignitaries.

    The Prince walks with dignitaries along a crowd lined street. Lots of cheering and waving.

    The Provost makes a speech from a podium bestowing on the Prince the freedom of the Borough of Rothesay. The Prince sits listening. The Prince makes a speech in reply. Shot becomes closer. Pan across crowd to show the ruins of Rothesay Castle.

    People stand for what sounds like a version of 'Scotland The Brave'.
