Nicola Sturgeon today received a mixed reception as she arrived for a historic city-making ceremony in Dunfermline.

The Scottish First Minister was loudly booed by parts of the crowd – and cheered by others – as she smiled and waved to fellow Scots outside Dunfermline City Chambers this morning.

Crowds had gathered outside the historic building to catch a glimpse of King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla – who are also attending the event.

Dunfermline, which is just across the Forth estuary from the Scottish capital Edinburgh, was granted city status earlier this year as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

But the Monarch died last month, at the age of 96, before the ceremony to formally mark the honour could take place.

Today, Charles, who ascended the throne last month following the death of his mother, will be among those attending the ceremony.

Ahead of the ceremony, First Minister Sturgeon arrived at Dunfermline City Chambers, where she was met by Lord Provost of Dunfermline Jim Leishman.

But as she turned to wave to the largely royalist crowds, the Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) leader was met with a mixed reception. Among a smattering of cheers and claps were loud boos and whistles.

The moment was captured on camera by ITV’s royal editor Chris Ship.

Posting the video on Twitter, he wrote: ‘If you needed a reminder of how decisive Scottish politics can be, Nicola Sturgeon was mostly booed (plus some cheers) by the crowd waiting for King Charles and Camilla to arrive.

‘This is a crowd waiting for a monarch to turn up but took me by surprise…’.

In sharp contrast, King Charles was later seen greeting crowds, some of whom were waving the Union flag.

One Dunfermline resident who was among those to gather outside the city chambers ahead of the King’s visit described the arrival of the monarch as ‘exciting’.

Bill Henderson, 71, said: ‘It’s a historic event.

‘I was born just before the Queen was came to the throne, so she’s been my monarch my whole life. It’s just exciting.

‘And especially a King Charles coming back to Dunfermline when King Charles the First was born here, however long ago that was.’

Teacher Carol Williams, 52, said: ‘It’s such an honour for Dunfermline.’

The newly-crowned city, which can date its roots back to before the Bronze Age, was given its city status in May as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

In total, eight towns were granted city status, including Colchester, Doncaster, Milton Keynes, Stanley in the Falkland Islands, Bangor in Northern Ireland, Douglas on the Isle of Man and Wrexham in Wales.

Dunfermline beat Scottish rival St Andrews, known worldwide as the home of golf and Scotland’s first university, to gain the honour.

Speaking at the time, Provost of Fife Jim Leishman, said: ‘The official title of city will give Dunfermline the wider recognition that it deserves as one of the fastest-growing, urban areas in Scotland, offering all the amenities that any modern city could hope for.

‘City status will help us grow economically and as a tourist destination and will have a positive impact on Dunfermline and the surroundings.

‘Of course, the people of Dunfermline have always known that Dunfermline is a city, that’s why we have the City Car Park, the City Hotel and City Cabs but it’s great to finally get official recognition of this. ‘

Alongside the ceremony, King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla will carry out other engagements in Scotland today.

They will attend a council meeting at the City Chambers, before touring Dunfermline Abbey to mark its 950th anniversary.

They will later hosting a reception to celebrate British South Asian communities at The Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.
