The King and his Queen Consort will visit Dunfermline next week in their first joint public engagements since the period of royal mourning ended, according to the BBC.

Dunfermline, which was once Scotland's capital, was the birthplace of Charles I and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.

Dunfermline became Scotland's eighth city after being granted the statue as part of celebrations marking the 70-year reign of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Charles and Camilla will attend an official council meeting at the City Chambers on Monday (Oct 3).

They will visit Dunfermline Abbey to mark the former town in Fife's new status as Scotland's eighth city.

The King and his wife will also host a reception during the day at Edinburgh's Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Royal mourning ended on Tuesday (Sep 27) and has seen the Prince and Princess of Wales visiting the country for the first time since taking up their titles.
