The Earl of Forfar tried one of Angus’ most famous delicacies as he made his inaugural trip to the town of his new namesake.
Prince Edward – who was granted the title as a 55th birthday present from the Queen in March – was greeted by hundreds of onlookers as he arrived in the Burgh with wife Sophie on Monday afternoon.
And during his visit the royal couple sunk their teeth into a Forfar bridie.
The Earl and Countess of Forfar visited the town’s two most famous makers of the pastry – McLaren’s and Saddler’s.
At McLaren’s, the Earl and Countess met the fourth, fifth and sixth generations of the long-established firm, before moving on to the nearby premises of Saddler’s, established in 1897 and currently run by the great grandson of its founder.
Morna Saddler said: “They were absolutely fantastic visitors, asked about the origins of the bridie and were very happy to try it.”
