So the Queen's schedule supercedes that of the general public.
Rotten for you, but she hadn't made her mind up on the day to have a banquet. The notice period usually runs to 3 months.

In the Long Gallery, the Dutch artist Jacob de Wet painted 110 portraits of Scottish kings, both real and legendary, from King Fergus I to King Charles II.

No problem from memory it was used by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh for the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in 2011,but I also think it has been used since.

This is excellent news! There is nothing like the old Elms for that beautiful vase silhouette. It turns out Edinburgh has done an excellent job of slowing the spread of the disease. There is a bit about this in Wikipedia and elsewhere on the internet.

The Abbey served as the site of coronations, royal marriages and funerals before it collapsed into ruins. I imagine once James VI became James I of England and moved to that country there was not much interest in maintaining the Abbey for royal purposes.
There is no longer a chapel within the palace. There had been a Catholic chapel during the time that the exiled French Royal Family lived there but not any longer. I have seen detailed plans of the palace which tells what every room is and none of them were marked as a chapel.

I love Holyrood Palace and visit it regularly. My only complaint is that the state apartments really need to be made more stately, particularly the Throne Room. While the wood panelling in the Great Gallery and the Dining Room has been painted to brighten it up, the Throne Room, Morning Drawing Room and Evening Drawing Room still have the dark wood which makes them look dark and dreary. Apparently it was Prince Philip who insisted on the Great Gallery being painted and I wish he had done the same with the Throne Room. It really needs to be painted, perhaps white, and highlighted in gold.The canopy which used to be over the thrones was removed many years ago and moved to St. James' Palace and it should be replaced to give the room a more majestic feeling. Old photographs of the room show that in the past it was a far more majestic room than it is today and without the wood panelling.
