Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip open new canal in Scotland

ICONINSIDER — Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip opened a new canal in Falkirk, Scotland, on Wednesday (05.07.17).
The British royals led a small flotilla along a new canal as they formally opened the feature, which has been named the Queen Elizabeth II Canal after the Monarch.
The new design forms the eastern gateway to the Forth and Clyde Canal, and it flows as far as the Kelpies sculptures, one of Scotland’s most popular attractions.
The Queen and Prince Philip were cheered on by hundreds of supporters as they boarded the Seagull Trust boat named The Wooden Spoon, which carried them along the canal on their five-minute trip.
The duo subsequently met Kelpies sculptor Andy Scott and the Queen appeared to be in good spirits as she was introduced to Duke and Dan, the two horses that inspired the iconic artwork.
Thereafter, the royals went to see the engineering work that was involved in the building of the new canal.
This comes after Queen Elizabeth’s son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, recently wrapped a tour of Canada in honour of 150 years since the country was established.
During their visit, the prince attended a star-studded national extravaganza in the country’s capital of Ottawa, where he praised the nation for its leading examples of “fairness and inclusion” that other countries should emulate.
