Royal Week (aka Holyrood Week) is an annual visit by the reigning British monarch to the city of Edinburgh. For around a week, usually at the end of June to early July, the Royal Family takes up residence in the Palace of Holyrood House.
Food and drink festival Taste of Edinburgh returns to The Meadows.
