The Duke of Edinburgh will head to the Queen's royal residence at Balmoral after his public engagement at the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
He is due to present three Royal Medals at the earlier ceremony, to the following recipients:
- Professor Sir John Cadogan, the former director of research at BP and President of the Learned Society of Wales
- Professor Michael Ferguson, Dean of Research for the College of Life Sciences at The University of Dundee
- Businessman Sir Ian Wood, former chairman of Wood Group Plc.
Prince Philip is then expected stay at Balmoral until October before returning to London.
His time in Scotland could see him meet his great-grandson for the first time after he was unable to join the Queen in meeting Prince George last month.
