The Queen will attend a service in a chapel built in memory of a man who died days before the end of the Second World War as she concludes a week of engagements in Scotland.

Her son, the Earl of Wessex, will accompany her as she visits Robin Chapel in the south east of Edinburgh where they will meet the chairman of the Trustees and the Rev Tom Coupar on Friday.

After the service the Queen will meet members of the Tudsbery family whose relatives, Sir Frances and Lady Tudsbery, built the chapel in memory of their only son Robin. He was a lieutenant in the Royal Horse Guards and was killed in the final days of the war in Germany.

Built in 1950, the chapel is in the centre of The Thistle Foundation - a charity and housing complex supporting people with disabilities and health conditions.

The Queen's visit comes ahead of the foundation's 70th anniversary. It was established in 1944 to provide disabled veterans medical support that would allow them to live with their families rather than in a hospital. Since then, the charity has worked to promote the inclusion of disabled people within communities.

Earlier this week the Queen presented honours at an investiture ceremony, with Olympic gold medal-winning showjumper Scott Brash among those to receive an OBE.

She also hosted a garden party for around 8000 people at Holyroodhouse on Tuesday and the next day officially reopened the refurbished former home of Sir Walter Scott.

On Thursday, the Queen viewed a parade led by the Royal Regiment of Scotland before presenting a new, hand-made pipe banner to the regimental band at Dreghorn Barracks in Edinburgh.

The Queen is not being accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh during her engagements this year as he is recovering from recent surgery.
