The royal couple will visit Edinburgh next Tuesday for a meeting at a social enterprise cafe on Tuesday to help to mark the Scottish Year of Young People 2018.

The couple will be meeting members of the public and learn more about organisations that work in the local community, Kensington Palace confirmed today.

The BBC reported they will also see the Esplanade in front of Edinburgh Castle.

The Royal Marines Scotland Band will officially welcome them and they will watch the One O’clock Gun being fired inside the castle.

In December last year Prince Harry became Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Marines.

The showpiece of the visit will be a tour of Social Bite, a social enterprise cafe which distributes 100,000 items of food and hot drinks to homeless people each year.

The charity also employs staff who have been homeless.
