Scotland’s royal jewels were given to King Charles in a historic Thanksgiving service on July 5.

Eight weeks after being crowned in Westminster Abbey, the monarch was presented with the Crown of Scotland, the Sceptre, and the Sword of State of the Honours of Scotland at St. Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh.

At the chapel on the Royal Mile, 100 people from all spheres of society joined William and Catherine, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay north of the border.

In his sermon, the Right Reverend Sally Foster-Fulton, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, urged action to combat global warming in order to prevent the planet from “baking to a crisp.”

After the historic ceremony, a 21-gun salute was fired across the Scottish capital, and nine planes then left red, white, and blue trails as the royals looked on from the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

The Prince and Princess of Wales, along with the King and Queen Camilla, gathered together to see the Red Arrows flypast.

The Princess of Wales dressed in a Catherine Walker coat, a Philip Treacy hat, and jewelry from the late Queen’s collection for the service, while her husband wore his RAF No. 1 uniform.

In his speech, the Right Reverend Foster-Fulton urged the congregation to recognize that “the Heavens and Earth” are not “human commodities or possessions” in order to put society “on the right track.”

‘Blessed are we, on the right track are we when we understand that our children do not inherit this Earth from us – we have borrowed it from them,’ she said.

‘And it is our duty to return it still singing and surging and bathing, not baking to a crisp.’
