With competitions such as tossing the caber, hammer throwing, and tug of war, the gathering is a tradition and brings together hundreds of spectators each year. The event features pipe bands and Highland dancers also performing for the audience.

MEGAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY NOT ATTENDING THE EVENT

Though Queen Elizabeth II graced the event, some members of the royal family were not present. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex declined the invitation to the program saying that four-month-old Archie was too young.

It was later that Markle left for New York to visit her friend Serena Williams at the US Open tournament. This is not the first time that the Duchess has skipped a royal gathering. She had previously skipped the Royal Ascot as well.
