Highland Dancing for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

HollyroodhousedancingI recently got the chance to dance at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in front of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who were attending the Beating of the Retreat by the Massed Pipes and Drums of the Combined Cadet Force in Scotland.

I performed the Strathspey and Highland Reel in a group of four with girls from George Heriot’s School. Before the performance we were shown around the courtyard and some beautiful rooms with elaborate décor and furniture.

The highlight was when I got to speak to Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. She asked me how long I had been a dancer and complimented me on my smile during the performance.
