PRINCE Edward and Sophie Wessex visited Gordonstoun on Tuesday to present awards to Moray schoolchildren and volunteers.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex and Forfar presented 125 children with commemorative Moray badges before presenting the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service to Gordonstoun's Voluntary Fire Unit.

Their Royal Highnesses capped the visit with a viewing of archive material relating to Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, who passed away in 2021.
