Nicola Sturgeon: Scotland's First Minister has met The Queen in Edinburgh
The meeting at the Queen’s official residence in Scotland took place during her traditional trip north of the border for Holyrood Week.
The Queen also spoke with Alison Johnstone MSP, who became presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament after May’s election.
The Queen’s four-day visit will celebrate Scottish culture, achievement and communities.
She will be joined by her grandson, the Duke of Cambridge – who is known as the Earl of Strathearn while in Scotland – at engagements on Monday, while her daughter, the Princess Royal, will accompany her on Wednesday and Thursday.
On Monday, the Queen was introduced to Scotland’s “other national drink”, Irn-Bru, and took part in the Ceremony of the Keys on the forecourt of Holyroodhouse.
