The Queen has begun a week-long stay in Scotland marking her Diamond Jubilee with a visit to Edinburgh’s newly-refurbished Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

The monarch, who is in residence at Holyrood Palace for the annual Royal Week, toured the gallery, which is home to a collection of world-renowned paintings. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were greeted by a large crowd as they arrived at the gallery.

Earlier, the Queen took part in an ancient ceremony to formally receive her into the City of Edinburgh.

At the annual Ceremony of the Keys, she was handed the keys of the city by the Lord Provost.
