‘Her Union is dead!’ Furious Scottish nationalists attack Queen ahead of Scotland tour

The monarch will visit charities and businesses in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Sterling. However the move infuriated some online nationalists, with one branding it “patronising” and hoping “the heavens open” during the trip.

The four-day tour will last from June 28 to July 1, with the Queen staying at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

She will be joined by Prince William, known in Scotland as the Earl of Strathearn for one day and later by Princess Anne.

A royal statement explained: “The Queen will visit Scotland for Royal Week between Monday 28th June and Thursday 1st July 2021, where Her Majesty will undertake a range of engagements celebrating Scottish community, innovation and history.

“The Queen will stay at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Sovereign’s official residence in Scotland.

“Her Majesty will be joined by The Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn, for engagements on Monday 18th June, and by The Princess Royal for engagements on Wednesday 30th June and Thursday 1st July.

“In Edinburgh, Glasgow and Sterling, The Queen will visit businesses, charities and cultural institutions that highlight the pioneering work taking place to further community engagement, education, technology, and efforts to tackle climate change.”

Reacting to the news on Twitter one nationalist posted: “Her previous union is dead…”

The user had a Saltire being raised as his profile picture, and described themselves as a “proud Scot” who dislikes “Tories and Unionists”.

One wrote: “The separatists won’t be happy.”

A second responded to criticism of The Queen by posting pictures of a Union Jack and Scottish Saltire side-by-side.

The Queen usually hosts a garden party and Investiture ceremony at Holyroodhouse each year.

However, due to coronavirus restrictions, the event will not be going ahead this year.

The royal statement adds: “This year’s Royal Week will continue to recognise the good work and contribution of individuals and communities, through a range of in-person visits by Her Majesty.

“During previous Royal Weeks, The Queen has visited Gorgie City Farm in Edinburgh, the Technology and Innovation Centre at The University of Strathclyde, and the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.”

In May Nicola Sturgeon was re-elected as Scotland’s first minister, though the SNP fell one short of a Holyrood majority.

She is demanding another referendum on taking Scotland out of the UK.

In 2014 Scotland voted to remain part of Britain by 55 percent to 45 percent.

David Cameron was later recorded telling former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg the Queen had “purred down the line”, following the result.
