Hundreds of people lined the streets of an Angus town as locals welcomed their new Earl and Countess on Monday.
Forfar celebrated its first visit from an eponymous Earl in more than 300 years on a historic day for the Angus town. Prince Edward received the ancient title of the Earl of Forfar as a 55th birthday present from the Queen in March and locals turned out in force to welcome their royal guest when he and his wife Sophie came to call on Monday. The couple sampled the famous Forfar bridie and received gifts, including a fiddle tune composed in their honour and a specially-designed tartan, on what the Earl said had been a “splendid” welcome to the town.
The Earl of Forfar tried one of Angus' most famous delicacies as he made his inaugural trip to the town of his new namesake.
