They are indeed being married in Edinburgh, at Canongate Kirk, on Canongate. This is the kirk the Queen regards as her parish church in Scotland.
The reception will be at Holyrood House.

Have a look under "Princess Royal" - there is more info on the impending wedding....

The Palace of Holyrood House has one of the best gift shops in Edinburgh:

Palace of Holyroodhouse Shop, Canongate, Royal Mile, Edinburgh EH8 8DX

There is the usual china, bath linen etc., but at present the William and Catherine china items are very popular...

For tomorrow's wedding, the Queen and Prince Philip won't be coming to Edinburgh until Saturday lunchtime(ish).

Well, the Palace of Holyroodhouse has again shown Scotland and the world its uniqueness and iconicity.

Again, the Royals, in their turn, have made themselves home there.

Now it's Balmoral's turn...

Enjoyable but I don't think we learned or saw very much about the palace itself. Probably the weakest of the 3 shows on the Queens palaces.

Very disappointing. Fiona was side tracked, the subject was Holyrood House, the Queens Palaces, not Mary Queen of Scots.

Palace of Holyrood House

It is the case that Holyrood is the least well known of Her Majesty`s palaces, and indeed is overshadowed by Balmoral, however, it does deserve a sense of loyalty from all of us who support the monarchy. I live quite near by the Palace and am a constant visitor. I never fail to be struck by the atmosphere of Holyrood, those thick walls and Baroque interiors, the heavy air of history that permeates every room, and of course, the glorious surroundings of Holyrood park and the Salisbury Crags. As a proud Scot-Brit and monarchist, Holyrood is the King of the palaces, in my eyes.

I visited Holyrood Palace for the first time this past October and was completely enchanted. I loved all of Edinburgh, but Holyrood was my favorite...and nothing compares to the ruins.

...and I took thought Fiona spent a little too much time on Mary Queen of Scots and should have spent more time on that palace itself.

I have visited Holyrood twice and from the guides I have had if I didn't already know that The Queen stayed there each year for a week or so I would have left there under the impression that no monarch has ever lived there except Mary Queen of Scots as that is all that the guides talked about.

Holyrood guides

Yes you`re right, the Palace`s biggest draw, Mary, is something of a double edged sword. The tour guides do tend to dwell just a little too much on her, but unfortunately, our intellectual betters have determined that history can only be appreciated through a " human interest story " hence the obsession with poor Mary.

I know right? She went from talking about it being the Queen's residence to talking more about when it belonged to queen Mary of Scotland.otherwise it was nice to see what it looked like on the inside.

Just wondering if the Queen or other members of the royal family wanted to stay at Hollyrood House for a long holiday, would they be allowed, because of the public opening etc?

If they wished, can't see why when The Queen has Balmoral, I imagine the schedule would be altered during August/September time. It is altered for Holyrood Week and would have been altered when the family stayed there for Zara's wedding.

Several years ago, my husband and I were part of a guided tour of the UK. One of our "excursions" was a tour of Windsor Castle. I was very anxious to see the restoration after the fire. Upon our arrival in London, we were informed that our daytime tour of Windsor Castle had been cancelled as the Queen was holding a banquet there that evening.

So the Queen's schedule supercedes that of the general public.
