Royal seal of approval for garden
The Queen has opened a £650,000 family roof garden at a hospital in Aberdeen.
The space is designed to give patients a flavour of the outdoors and help aid their recovery at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
She unveiled a plaque for the feature, which won awards at Chelsea Flower Show, and met former Scotland manager Craig Brown, who is one of the garden’s ambassadors.
The royal visitor, who was wearing an Angela Kelly tweed coat with navy and white flecks and a matching hat, also took time to chat to nursing staff and patients.
The unveiling of the Robertson Family Roof Garden was followed by a blessing before the Queen visited a Sue Ryder neurological care centre in Aberdeen.
