There’s nothing quite like a prince or duke — or earl — in uniform. And it just so happens Prince William is all three!
The royal dad, 36, spent Thursday in Scotland, where he’s known as the Earl of Strathearn, for a series of engagements honoring the contributions of Scots across professions and industries. (William’s title in the U.K. is, of course, the Duke of Cambridge.)
Most notably, he attended an Annual Service of Commemoration at the Scottish National War Memorial at Edinburgh Castle to remember those who died in conflicts from 1914 to today. He wore an official military uniform for the occasion and was joined by Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon.
Before that, he started his day at the Royal Society of Edinburgh where he presented a medal to Professor Richard Henderson, whose “electron microscopy has resulted in new treatments for several serious diseases and saving lives,” Kensington Palace tweeted. Professor Henderson won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2017.
While there, he also honored Dr. Thea Musgraves, one of the most accomplished Scottish composers, and David Climie, a renowned bridge builder, and he met Michael Harkins, an entrepreneur who founded Turtle Pack, which makes swimming aids for children.
William is also stopping by a reception at the National Museum of Scotland to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the National Health Service, which provides free healthcare for U.K. residents. Some 700 guests will be in attendance.
