King Abdullah of Jordan is to take the salute at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo on Wednesday.

The king and his wife, Queen Rania, will watch the Tattoo show, which includes The Royal Jordanian Army Band.

Tattoo chief executive Major General Euan Loudon said it was "an honour" to welcome the royal couple.

The Tattoo, which runs for three weeks on Edinburgh Castle's esplanade, is celebrating its diamond anniversary, having first been staged in 1950.
