Members of the Girl Guides, Scouts and Boys and Girls Brigade will also attend.

The parade starts from Holyroodhouse Palace to St Giles and is accompanied by a military escort.

The ceremony in the cathedral concludes with a 21-gun salute at Edinburgh Castle.

The famous Red Arrows will also perform a flypast after the service.
