Students rubbed shoulders with royalty when they were given the opportunity to perform for the Queen.

Current musicians from St Leonards School in St Andrews joined with a select group of former students known as the St Leonards Seniors for a special service at Crathie Kirk at Balmoral.

The group performed the anthem for the day, Turn Thy Face From My Sins by Thomas Attwood, and were involved in leading the hymns.
