"Yeah that's true. You don't okay all right last one last one not. We're going to get a little more serious here So there are so many more stories. I wish we had time for There's a ghost dog a headless drummer. Boy but i thought maybe we should do just a general debate about the paranormal activity. That people feel cold. Spots touches. Shadow figures all that By talking about a scientific study done in two thousand one to test the castles paranormal activity. We don't often get this no. We don't okay here we go. This is from time magazine. In two thousand one and broke castle became the site of one of the largest paranormal investigations in history. A team of nine researchers over two hundred members of the public explored the castles forgotten. Chambers and secret passages for signs of ghostly happenings. I can't is just this. What the it said are. The public was not told which areas of the castle were rumored to be haunted in which we're not fifty. One percent of participants in haunted areas reported paranormal experiences. While only thirty five percent did so in the non-hunted areas shadowy figures drops in temperature. And the feeling of something tugging on. Your clothes are all everyday experiences in edinburgh. And what about poop smells okay. They didn't mention that good. I'm glad all right so Time magazine i think was doing this to try to frighten people a little bit accusation. Yeah well i mean. They're not a sponsor if they became a sponsor. I might change my tune about that but the bbc Actually had an article by dr weizmann. And that is one of the doctors that actually performed the whole experiment. Okay dr weisman who remained skeptical about the existence of ghost. Said he believed the background. Light from beyond the vaults archways and the size of the faults appear to be a factor so edinburgh castle is widely believed to be haunted. We measure air temperature. Air movement magnetic fields in light levels from outside the vaults when it was darker outside in the corridor then people reported far more experiences inside the vaults so there's obviously a sense of not knowing what's going on outside the corridor and that's leading to people perhaps being more anxious he added the hunted vaults had twice as much floor space and they were about one third higher that either means ghost like large spaces to live in or these. Physical measurements are having an impact on people's psychology. Okay now i would also like to say that. They did recruit participants from all over the world that did not have a pre like pre knowledge of what was haunted. And what wasn't in. Dr weisman is not saying that they knew he's places should be haunt and they did also have paranormal equipment. Like thermal imaging and sensors temperature probes all of that so it wasn't like people were just like i feel like it's cold. They like literally you know had temperatures or they fist. Not touching that. That's not what the article says. The article says that fifty one percent of the people stated that a place was haunted when they suspected that it was haunted. That's true they didn't know that where they were. When by the way he considered a haunted play the way that's not huge numbers fifty one percent and thirty five percent. That's really not it's not. It's not overwhelming. So i i'm just going to say that this that dr weizmann does find this encouraging but this he specifically says this is not proof of paranormal. Now i will say in another article that i found Again back on that. I knew it said the volunteers reported not only the sudden drops in temperature but they did report seeing shadowy figures a feeling of being watched a burning sensation on the skin and then people tugging at them but again dr weizmann did say that When when it was darker outside people would experience more frights and be more be more anxious got and that's what could be causing these things to happen. You're mind plays tricks on you when you're when you're that anxious you have their fighter flight thing going on all right so what's your rating. Then i'm gonna have to go zero. Although i appreciate all the research that was done into this may have to go zero okay. I'm gonna go eight. I'm sorry but this was like random trial people put into to like hurson. Say no the person that did. The experiment said that he didn't think it meant anything. The skeptical person who did the study g surprise was skeptical. I'm gonna say the numbers. They show a bit haunting. I'm so i'm going to go with it. I gotta go with that. I can't let go with it all right. So what is your overall rating for an borough castle i'm gonna say a seven is my overall rating. Yep absolutely because. I think there's been a lot of reports again a little bit of study But yet i didn't necessarily find a lot of like pictures or videos or things like that. Okay well i'm going to have to go with the zero because that's an average of my scores. Okay so i do not think it's haunted at all. Death brings us to our closing arguments. This is our last chance to convince you to vote our way. We are each given one minute of uninterrupted time. We will time each other on our cell phones to keep rebecca honest you ready. Yes and go i. I do believe that edinburgh castle is haunted of all the places that we have talked about. i i you know. was in edinburgh. I was in the castle. Did i experience anything. No but i was there during the day. And i at that time i wasn't thinking of the castle is being haunted but You know i did. I wasn't knbr. I did take a ghost tour. We went to those catacombs and Man that place just has this town city has so much of a history And then when it comes to the castle itself against so many reports from people that Visit people that work there and then we have a literally scientific study where it kinda leaned. Paranormal i mean again. People didn't know if they were going to be in a paranormal area or not paranoia. They didn't know what was considered what And the people that were in the more that Paranormal areas were more likely to.

"We're back for the debate. Yes we are. I don't usually do the intro. But i'm excited to do it. You did it all right. Well paranormal activity has been reported by hundreds of staff visitors over the years to edinburgh castle. to this day people report witnessing apparitions feeling unwelcome presences. Shadowy figures being touched by non human forces and experiencing sudden temperature changes in and around the structure allegedly allegedly. Oh we're going to talk about a few of the specific ghosts that are reported and then we're going to talk about just that kind of general haunted experience people report all right okay. One of the most popular stories is that of the ghostly bagpiper boy a ghostly. Okay this version. I'm about to share is from i news but there are many out there. several hundred years ago some secret tunnels were found beneath edinburgh castle leading towards hollywood. Holly holly rude house. Is that their version of hollywood. I guess keep wanting to say hollywood. There ali rude house at the bottom of the royal mile that she meant him. Yes as the opening to the tunnel was really small Lee young boy was sent down with his bagpipes to investigate. He played the pipes loudly as he walked through the tunnel. So people above ground could work out. Where the tunnel went. The pipe stopped abruptly when they reached the tron kirk and. I don't know where that is. But it's somewhere like tron like the moving maybe at no so everything got lit up with neon i well. I think this was a long time before. Oh or this isn't super modern history And although the search parties were set research parties were sent to find the boy he was never seen again with the piper presumed dead. The tunnel was blocked up but many people still report hearing the faint ghostly sound of underground bagpipes to this day It's really interesting. And this is not the only boy with musical instruments in this castle. But this is the one i picked because i thought it was interesting. Okay you know. I'm gonna say first of all that the boy dying in these tunnels the tunnels might have collapsed on him or something. So i i don't think that that is like mysterious or anything like that Especially with bagpipes. Being played in these small tunnels. They're really loud. They're like like have a piercing sound Have you ever been around bagpipe. A yes and they're pretty piercing. They are so so that part. I hear from lisp. Is that play bag. I might know of one actually So anyways That part to me doesn't seem like a Crazy mystery so but that's not the part we're debating. I would agree. There's plenty of natural reasons that he could have died in the tunnel and the reason why the tunnels are there is probably for escape. Routes you know from the castle because You don't wanna get detained in the castle for months and have them Sweat you out of all your food and everything so So that that's not. The part were debating but what we are debating. Though is the report of hearing the faint ghostly sound of underground bagpipes. Yes so when. I'm going to say about. This is were edinburgh. Castle is very historic area. Therefore there could very well be bagpipes being played pistons scotland. There's begged yeah. I mean especially in a historic part of scotland very touristy to yeah so. I don't think that this is crazy to think that they could hear that. So it's like wafting from the air kinda coming up there and people are hearing is what you're saying. Wool sound bounces off walls. And so it could bounced off a couple walls. It could actually becoming up from the tunnels but may be where the entrance of the tunnel is is where the bagpipes are being played. I think it's the ghost boy in the tunnels. When i was there actually when i was there when our tour bus pulled up i feel like such a rockstar saying that but it was really like you pay for a tour. I mean anyways when our tour bus pulled up You know. And i got out with my bottle of jack daniels and everything because i was rockstar They're actually bagpipe. Players there in the front. Yeah but they didn't seem ghostly too you know but if i heard it from a different spot in the castle it would sound. Go slow interesting. Okay yeah i mean. If i couldn't see the person playing it it would sound ghostly interesting. Okay yeah i. I'm proud of how often we said ghostly already ghostly gross effort hey none of that all right so what's your rating of this one. I'm going to go a one on this woo. that's surprising. yeah. I mean just. Because i don't have any evidence of it you you have any recordings of. I couldn't find anything. So i can't tell if it's real Being played at the moment or not. I'm going to give this one a six. Okay yeah because i again couldn't find any re recordings of it but definitely a lot of reports of it But you make a compelling argument but it could also be. Pre prerecorded bag played music. And i'm not saying they're doing this to You know freak people out. Or i'm just saying it could be played in another part of the castle and echo through to that part. Let's go listen to some bagpipe. Music after ghostly today oh absolutely i love. Bagpipes all right. I've got another piece of evidence here. our next story is that of a witch. Whoa you mentioned which is Earlier when you're talking about our episode here By the way. I do not see which is as being bad things. That's true in like a real witch as opposed to like well talking about here So we did our salem episode a few months ago with our good friend jacob mayfield. Please go listened that episode. If you haven't checked sees awesome and check his.

"The garrison were all killed. Wow so again. We have a little bit of a trojan horse. yeah situation. I mean this. In this case it wasn't just two guys taking a whole castle like we had last week. Yeah let conway. But we'll come on. We didn't have as many men. I mean i believe what they believe. They always had at least three hundred men in in edinburgh out. Yeah it could be more than that. But at least three hundred data i in the early fifteenth century. Another english invasion this time under henry. The fourth reached edinburgh castle and began a siege but eventually withdrew due to lack of supplies during the fifteenth century. The castle was increasingly used as an arsenal and armament factory. Okay and they actually Bought the first gun there. Oh okay in like thirteen. Something i forget ner. Maybe it was fourteen something. I don't know yeah. It was kinda crazy So king james the fifth still only five years old was brought to the castle for safety does not seem like a safe place. I'm going to be honest with you. like so like six years later the side came and took it back and then another use later. These other side came in take took it back. Seems like a very war torn castle yet but it would take less men to defend him there than it would in any other spot and if they were out for him because he was the monarch then yeah it would want to protect him And he survived. Okay so upon his death twenty five years later. The crown passed to his week old daughter so he was five years old right when he became king and the next one became king after one week of being born or queen. Yeah and that was mary. Queen of scots. You've heard of her before right. English invasion followed as king henry. The eighth attempted to force a dynastic marriage on on scotland. I mean i'm sure we could spend a lot of time. Go delving deep into this history but the super interesting part of there's a lot of movies out there on this stuff. Oh yeah yeah. Yeah and her sister. Elizabeth the first and stuff yeah So mary queen. Scott spent most of childhood in france while scotland was ruled by regions and in fifteen fifty eight. She married the dauphin of france. Mary was queen consort or france from his from his accession into fifteen fifty nine until his death. In december fifteen sixty widowed. Mary returned to scotland. Arriving in leith on august nineteenth fifteen sixty one four years later. She married her half cousin. Henry stuart lord darnley and in june fifteen sixty six. They had a son james. She gave birth to him at an inn. Borough castle He would later be king of both scotland and england. Wow so yeah there's been a lot of english royalty at edinburgh castle's or definitely as well as scottish royalty. In sometimes they were both exactly mary. Queen of scots and all the events. It's rounded this time. Period makes modern day politics. Look like some kind of pleasure cruise. I mean she saw her husband was. Her husband was executed in. She married the person that was suspected. As organizing the execution and then her enemy actually switched sides and held the castle in in her name. it was called the laying siege. Okay We could do full series of episodes just on the history of edinburgh castle. But i think it's safe to say that there was just a lot of turmoil that happened throughout the years and in later years it was used as a prison where several executions took place This is my favorite part of the history. Statues of the bruce and william wallace were added to the gatehouse entrance in nineteen. Twenty nine their current. Currently one of the first things that you see when you go to edinburgh castle and that is one of my memories. I remember looking up william wallace. That's it was amazing and it's well done well done statue. Edinburgh castle is located at the top of the royal mile. I know you're gonna talk about the royal mile a little bit. Yeah and at the west end of an edinburgh old town. The volcanic rock offers a naturally defended position which sheer cliffs to the north and south and steep ascent from the west. The only easy approach is from the town to the east and the castle's defences are situated accordingly with a series of gates protecting the route to the summit of of castlerock. And one thing that i talked to you about is it is like a is kind of like a spiral staircase when you go in there. Yeah yeah it's a it's a it's it's a walk. Oh yes it is there. It is a lot of exercise if you know if you go there and you're constantly going up. I wonder if anybody's ever taken a skateboard at the top and went down. That sounds scary. Yeah i would die. And i'd probably have to haunt the place. I'm definitely gonna look if i can find some of my pictures I was there in the springtime and there are beautiful daffodils Spring flowers all over the green part of the gasol rock castle rock and it was beautiful. Yeah i bet. I was there in the summer so i mean it was still nice but it was hot yes it. Umbro castle sees over a million visitors each year at. It's it's a major tourist attraction direct administration of the castle by the war office came to an end in nineteen o five and in nineteen twenty three. The army formerly moved to. The city's new redford barracks. Nevertheless the castle continues to have a strong connection with the army and is one of the few ancient castles in britain. That still has a military garrison albeit for largely ceremonial and administrative purposes Public duties performed by the garrison include guarding the honors of scotland And arm century. Stand watch at the gatehouse outside opening hours. The post of governor of edinburgh castle is now a ceremonial post head by the general officer. Commanding scotland cool. And i think this is where the crown jewels are. Right for. scotland sky. Read yeah. I mean obviously the british and then sometimes they're held there. Okay gotcha. Sometimes they go on tour ashore. Sure i'll museums. Yeah they kind of do that stuff. But there's definitely I remember a lot of scottish history to to be seen. They're exposed to walk around and kind of see the itself. It is the equivalent of england's tower of london where they have the crown jewels. There's right and i. I do remember actually seeing the crown jewels of scotland. When i was there. I did as well. Okay yeah cool. All right. You have anything else to add. No no and just to people that we were not there at the same time. No no no. I didn't know you know we do not know each other. Then i was there in the year. Two thousand. I knew you're gonna do that but when i was there i was there in ninety seven. Wow abe believe so like three years. Old ben yes exactly yup see. I'm good at the math. Alright well let's go ahead and take another.

"He presents facts all right. Rebecca ready for the path facts but x. So i am not sure that we've ever done something with this long of a history before i moved in with a lot of history but like as far as time. Yeah time goes. Yeah and i'm not gonna do the complete edinburgh castle history. Because i mean seriously we could be doing this for like ten episodes. Yeah we're still not run out of material or not hardcore history. great podcasts. By the way the you don't listen to but i do. I have listened to it. Oh have you okay. I think it's really good. The location where edinburgh castle stands has been in use by humans since at least the iron age. Did you know that no So although we don't really know much about its early history. An archaeological excavation in the early nineteen nineties uncovered evidence of the site having been settled during the late bronze age or early iron age potentially make making the castle rock which is where. The castle stands the longest continuously occupied site in scotland. How i thought that was really interesting. That is so something. I didn't know when i visited the castle. And i don't know if you knew this rebecca but the key but castlerock where it stands as i said is an old extinct volcano. No idea no idea but it makes sense now that i know that oh absolutely you can tell it looks 'cause it's a hill but it's not. It's not a hill. No it's it's like a mountain it's serious but it looks like a looks like a volcano like now that you say that that makes sense to me in the summit of castle rock is four hundred thirty feet above sea level. It's beautiful it is definitely beautiful. You could see it for most to scotland to. I believe i mean most of an integral. Yeah i mean that was the best part is i mean. Imagine walking around of big city like through modern big city but in the middle of the city. Is this really tall beautiful green hill with a castle hop. That's it's crazy so Art theory in legend suggests that the site once held shrine to morgan la. Fay one of the nine sisters. And i believe merlin's daughter right. Sure that our therion scholars you're not no. I thought because of your english. I mean i mean have i read some you know. medieval tales. Yes i have in middle english But i am still not a specialist so the castle has stood for more than a thousand years in that crazy. That is crazy. edinburgh castle and historic buildings. Date back to the eleventh century. Saint margaret's chapel a scenic backdrop for royal weddings across the centuries is officially scotland's oldest building erected by king david the i of scotland in roughly eleven thirty. So that i mean in what they believe was there before was like a tower ish kind of thing that had no roof okay. It was a structure that was common back in those days in scotland The first Documentary reference to a castle of and. Bro is john. Afford ines account of death of king malcolm the third which he lived from ten thirty one to ten ninety three Fordham describes his widow. The future saint margaret as residing at the castle of maidens when she is brought news of his death in november ten ninety three fordham's account goes on to relate. How margaret died of grief within days. And how malcolm's brother. Donald bain laid siege to the castle very bane when they bain laid siege. He did yes. I however fordham's chronicle was not written until the lea leader fourteenth century and the near contemporary account of the life of saint margaret. by bishop. Tergat makes no mention of a castle. So during the reigns of malcolm the third and his son and umbro castle became one of the most significant royal centers in scotland. Malcolm son king. King edgar died here in eleven. O seven some malcolm's youngest son king david. The first developed an in borough as a seat of royal power principally through the administrative reforms termed by some modern scholars the davidian revolution. Yeah when you have a revolution named after you. That's something you've you've done something. Yeah you've arrived you've arrived but you're you're seeing your fifteen minutes of fame There it is okay between eleven. Thirty nine and eleven fifty. David held an assembly of nobles churchmen a precursor to the parliament of scotland. The castle that's pretty fancy absolutely. Any buildings are defense would probably have been of timber at those times. Although to stone buildings are documented as having existed in the twelfth century of these aren't saint margaret's chapel remains at the summit of the rock in the second a church dedicated to saint mary which stood on the site of the scottish national war. Memorial that is currently there england. Scotland were at constant war. Edinburgh castle often played a part in this war of independence. I the first time in the english took control of edinburgh. Castle was in the battle of alnwick in eleven. Seventy four Which the treaty that followed this bloody war gave the english control of a lot of the scottish castles including an broke castle and another one of my favorites stirling castle. I have not been there. I've been there. It's really beautiful in eleven. Eighty six the english gave control of the castle back to king william the lion as the dowry for his marrying an english bride in march of twelve ninety six edward the i of england launched an invasion of scotland unleashing the first war of scottish independence and umbro castle soon came under the control surrendering after a three day long bombardment. This is during the time of william wallace and you might have. That name. might sound familiar to you. It was what the movie braveheart was based upon and this was the time period. Wow so we're just making it to braveheart y'all yeah yeah yeah it doesn't start with braveheart So after the death of edward the i in thirteen thirteen o seven however england's control over scotland weakened and on march fourteenth. thirteen fourteen. A surprise night. Attack by thomas randolph. The first earl of moray recaptured. The castle this is during the time of robert. The bruce which is another famous thing is character in the braveheart movies l. k. No name sounds familiar. Robert the bruce was betrayed is a he. He was a betrayer in that room and he. It's not exactly true. He he wasn't that bad of a man. He was pretty good so then. There was a second war of scottish independence and in thirteen. Thirty five england controlled annaborough castle once again. They held it for six years this time. The scottish assault was led by william douglas. Not william wallace Lord of live this schnell. Douglas party distinguished themselves as merchants from leaf bringing supplies to the garrison driving a cart into the entrance. They halted in it there to prevent the gates from closing and a large force hidden nearby rushed to join them in. The castle was retaken in the hundred. Englishmen of.

"I need to write this down. So i don't forget. Yesterday was the most interesting day of our vacation in scotland. I should also say the most terrifying. My wife. And i have been travelling around scotland for the past week and yesterday we finally had our first day edinburgh. What a beautiful place. Great day touring with a highlight. Both of us have been waiting for was the ghost who last night all day people best asking us what we were going to do that night and we told them about the tour. The just give us this knowing. Look and tell us to be careful. I laughed it off as the whole city being in the whole touristy haunted vibe and it was great exactly what we wanted. The first part of the tour was underneath the city in the catacombs unbelievable creepy an amazing history but nothing out of the ordinary happens. The second part of the tour was an edinburgh castle. We had seen it all day up on it. Great hill imposing first. They took us into some of the rooms where the soldiers would prepare for battle. I felt a few cold breezes. But i figured they were just drafts. I mean even after the guide told us people often feel cold spots in the castle. I mean it's a castle. Not an insulated house. We were outside then turing the areas. Where much so much fighting had happened. My wife tugged my right sleeve and asked what's that i looked at her and she pointed to our right down the battlement i i couldn't see what she was talking about but then i noticed it. Shadowy figure was moving along by the wall. I couldn't really make out any features on it is. It was so dark but it clearly looks like a person sneaking around. I started to walk closer to see what it was. My wife pulled me back. Don't get close to it. She whispered. I looked at her and said it. That's a person and i want to know what they're doing. Then we looked back and they were gone. No sign of anyone now. This could have been a person. But i don't understand why someone would do this. I mean it would be one thing if it was part of the tour and the guy had pointing it out to us all to see or something and it was night who besides us was still here still though i dismissed it as just someone being weird which was freaky but not anything like what happened next. For the last part of our tour we went the dungeons unsurprisingly. Our guide said that these were the most haunted spots of the whole castle. We walked around what we learned about the horrible conditions and torture. That happened here. All of the sudden. I felt a tug my rights. Leave again. I turned my head to see what my wife was seeing but she wasn't there no one was. I looked around and she was to my left a little ahead. The only people behind me were an older couple and they were a few feet behind both looking at something. In one of the old cells. I shook my head and thought i'm imagining things. But then we stopped while the tour guide continued to explain what happened to the people kept here and after a minute. It happened again this time. A huge tug on my right sleeve. I spend my head to look and again no one. I tried to make eye contact with the couple but they were still too far back and that looking at me and still. My wife was ahead of me to my left. What was happening. I thought shaking my head. I turned to focus again on the tour guide and almost immediately it happened again. An even bigger tug before i could even think i just said what's out loud and turned around to see who was doing this. The tour guide stopped and everyone looked at me. I was so embarrassed. But i told them someone keeps pulling at my sleeve. I don't care but please stop if it's you. That's when the tour guide told us about the spirits down in the dungeon who liked to be mischievous. She said that this was not the first time someone had experienced hugging or tapping down here. We kept moving at that point and everyone just kept sneaking glances at me. I've always wondered what it would be like to be famous but this was not the fame i had imagined i was happy to get out of there. Just hope nothing follows me home while. That's pretty spooky. Thanks but again. That's written by you right by me. I just wanna make sure definitely based on a few things that sure. But it's not a sunday else's story. Okay okay all right. Let's take a break and then we're going to get to the history and get into this episode. All right pat put creepy stories. Funny goes memes and inside ghostly information having common my life while yes but no it's also ghostly society on. Oh yeah. I mean to of course but aren't all listeners. Ingo society not yet.

Well plus it's gonna you know make people make it a little behind listening all that so. Yeah so Throughout the month of october you go and vote on any of our our episodes. Yes all right so now we're talking about any of the episodes since enfield are are october episodes wall and enfield was september. Okay we'll end of september basically tober aright. We're gonna talk about conway So so far again polls are not close. No they're definitely so so. Far yeses are at sixty three point six percents and knows or thirty six point four. However you wanna finish this. I would like to point out the overall ratings So we we allow people to do the same thing that we do here on ghostly where they can vote on how haunted they believe it is. Unfortunately we cannot do zero 'cause a software limitations. But they can do a one one being not haunted at all ten being the most haunted place ever and were at four point. Nine one so interesting. I really thought it was gonna be considered more haunted. Did this know yeah. so right. So keep voting and we'll we'll see where we end up absolutely so for this entire month. We're doing weekly full episodes of haunted castles. I mean we've done this before and october Once because the other time. I got sick and we couldn't continue but We we did this before but we always do like a beam where we don't debate until the last episode and you know what i just didn't want all that i'm like we're just gonna do it all every single time doing it full episodes So we wanted to search for the most alleged haunted castles in the world. There are plenty of plenty of other ones. I would love to have done like the tower of london But you know. I'm sure that is considered haunted by some. We'll get there. Yeah but At this time That is not one of them that we're doing and we're excited to see which one you think is the most haunted staff so that overall rating part is really gonna play a factor so beyond just being labeled as haunted. We also looked for castles that have very rich. History edinburgh was that for sure. I mean there's a long history so long. I don't think we've ever done one. That has such a rich history ever It involves a lot of wars or conflicts in involves prisoners of war involves. Which is it involves a whole bunch of things It's also our first scottish episode. Ever i believe yeah. I don't think we've ever talked about scotland and get is and both of us have been to scotland s and specifically to edinburgh. Yeah and spend more specifically to edinburgh castle and burqas. Yeah so we'd love to come back into a full on haunted scotland episode Somebody had recommended that in our ghostly society. We'll definitely revisit scotland for more at in the future. Yeah let us know if this is something that you'd be interested in hearing so rebecca. Let us here that go story all right. Let's get into.

Rory is also co author of the book. Rock wins a treacherous guide to the state of scotland published. Twenty sixteen. And when. I spoke to him recently. I was kid to get his update. On the current state of scotland. The two thousand sixteen brexit referendum in which scotland voted strongly to remain in the eu. And boris johnson's twenty nine thousand nine hundred. Uk general election confirmed growing divide between how scotland and england see their respective futures. The scottish national party secured a fourth successive electoral victory in last month's scottish parliamentary elections but the path to independence is still far from straightforward. So where does the snp go from here in pursuit of that objective. We'll come onto that. But rory's piece begins with a comment margaret thatcher made in the nineteen eighties whereas she offered a vision of modernisation. She asserted her. Opponents wanted to turn the uk inter museum society. Rory rights thatcher underestimated the appeal of museum society labor overestimated last him. To tell me more was one of the key things to understand about. Thatcherism is that this was not a return to the nineteenth century.

His wife anne hathaway or agnes and the life and death of one of the couple's children hamlet who died at eleven fifteen ninety six in o'farrell's novel. He died of the plague. And the book imagines the impact that this event might have had on arguably shakespeare's greatest play hamlet. Hamlet won the national book critics circle award for fiction and it was named by the new york times book review as one of its ten best books of twenty twenty with the editors calling it a bold feat of imagination and empathy and magill. Farrell is here to talk about it from edinburgh. Hi how you doing. i'm good. What do we know historically. That's in this novel. How bearer the bones that you were working with when you sat down well i they expire himself is quite a shadowy figure. There's an awful lot about him. We don't know despite the very best efforts of the world's most brilliant scholars and shakespearean academics. So it is mysterious. You know we only have six examples of his signature which is spelt differently so there are lots of lawmakers and gaps in his story. If we think we know very little about him we know even less about his wife. The woman weeping told to call anne hathaway and his children. We only hamlet himself.

Castle a with maggie with both at the end of what has been i would say a somewhat emotional day. Wouldn't you yeah. You know i was surprised. How much hit me. Sometimes because you know we've been covering this now for eight days right since. The death was first announced last friday all week. Long we've been hearing amazing tributes talking to people across the country following the story but for some reason today all came together and the most emotional moment was just seeing the family and it really struck me in the middle of it probably. I think when we saw the queen. Especially i mean it's hard not to get choked up a bit and just feel that heartbreak when you see the queen without fill up by her side knows what she's going through. So i totally agree. Definitely be more today than i was anticipating. The funeral of course was a day. That was prince. Phillip was heavily involved in the plans for a meticulous planner. And i think we kind of saw the fruits of fat today. Despite the fact that we had what was a very cova safe funeral following government guidelines. Any thirty mourners inside george's chapel. It felt like it had this. Show the pump the circumstance over royal events of family moments. There were more than seven hundred thirty members of the armed forces taking part in. It's somewhere across the grounds of the windsor estate. And i think that that lent to a very sort of grand sendoff for the of edinburgh despite inside the chapel it being so bad down and very minimalist in a way you know this was a that. Did not have a eulogy simply. We heard a lot from the archbishop of canterbury the windsor paid his own tribute to prince. Philip is. Kindness is humor and humanity throughout the ceremony. But as you say. I think that image of the queen seated alone in hama sc socially distance from other family members was was one that remains i think in the minds of many as we come to what has been a day of mourning for the entire country.

Yeah yeah although although you know the the The again the cresa from william he was talking about how he was grateful that that like his older kids got to know their great grandfather in december. What a treat that was and is grateful that that happened. And now if you will. We'll link to asean linked to williams statement. It was really good. Yeah i i was like. Oh gosh you are such. I can't wait till you're keen on. You're gonna be a good one is going to be great when it comes to that time. Yeah i mean that. May that may sound insensitive given what's going on but every time i every time williams says something or does something. I'm just like you're awesome. Dude kate i love her so there is going to be a national minute. Minute of silence at three o'clock at the top of the hour for the the ceremony actually service actually begins The gene of windsor and the archbishop of canterbury are going to perform the service and They're expecting the due to be buried at the royal vault at st george's chapel where Her majesty is eventually is expected to be buried there too. Once she what she passes So is e. that's a long way off. Yeah well yeah no. I know people speculated win this moment would come. what would she do. And as far as everyone is concerned and this has come from the people that know her. Best people like william and our children and our you know the people and the like that. She plans on ruling up until she passes Regardless that doesn't surprise me. Yeah yeah yes. She has pulled back on some work and has passed along some of those patronage edges to charles and camilla and the like and But she is still planning on on working Obviously health and pandemic permitting. I'd so Whether we'll see how soon will actually see her return to public again. Hub pandemic aside after the eight days of mourning has passed. I'm sure they're going to leave that up to her. I don't think she's been okay. Eight days or over back to work you know she needs more time. I don't think anybody's gonna progress her if she wants more time before before. Getting back to work It's it's unfortunate that the family this is their first chance to get together likely in a while because of the pandemic under these circumstances And unfortunately because of the pandemic not. It's not going to be everybody Harry has arrived in the uk He is currently self quarantining So that he can get through the quarantine period in time for saturday. Unfortunately megan is extremely pregnant with baby number. Two and She was a advised. It's not medically advisable for her to do the twelve hour flights you can even without the pandemic is pregnant. And she is. She wanted me to be getting on a plane. And and all and the like and all that so she is staying behind with archie presumably So but Hopefully that They can take this solemn of and find some find some light in in. What is a extremely sad time. Not just for the family but the entire country but definitely the family. I mean. it's always hard when you lose a family member but when you have someone who was such a pillar to it entire country a number of countries you know it caught a commonwealth of millions and millions of millions of citizens You know it's it's it's a loss. It is at the same time. I mean ninety nine years old. I mean so many of us are like if i lived to be a hundred and you know do you in a fraction of what of what he did. It's like you know it is sad in. Its i mean. I was sad when my grandparents passed away. They were in their eighties. And at the same time you're kind of like you know. I'm i'm glad that they're i had them for as long as i did. And i'm glad that i got to know them. And all these things so it's bitter sweet as well and you know. I mean especially if they have health problems which kind of seemed like Prince philip had his sheriff that as well. So you know it's it's sad but it's also a celebration of his life and looking back on the things that he did in the legacy that he lives or the left behind and you know the the the example he left for his family and also for the entire world so yeah it is. I am not going to diminish that at all. I also feel like it's a time to celebrate to an extent you can more more in life. Life lost celebrate. The life lived yes of life very well and fully lived very much so and if They've they've been discouraging people from leaving things like flowers and balloons and stuff outside the the various residencies they Although people have still been during doing so but if you if you are implying to make some sort of token in honor and respect her you know in memory of whatever You whether one of his patronage is is something that may be personally affected. You in in your in your life or something or just as a show of respect Your look at those list of patronage is and see if you can give a financial contribution and Help continue the the dukes work.

"Focus on his royal duties that he probably would have made a life out of it and probably died in the line of duty. Defending his country probably So it made him a very very worldly Person it made him very Aware of other Other cultures and people of other countries in food which will expand upon that here in a little bit though So yeah so he things like the his award and stuff you know. We're we're things that he started Fairly early on after elizabeth became queen but his his biggest thing and the one that i wanna make sure we touch on is. This is something that i think. Probably a good number of people don't realize that this is kind of the bread and butter of the royals is their charity work You know the the queen does have some political power You know any any laws passed by parliament. Have to go by her And she has to give her her. Okay i don't know what happens if she said no so she does have some political power But yeah i think when people think of the royalties day they give them like you know doing ribbon cuttings that like train stations. Or something and yeah. They do do some of that but they do a lot of work. Not necessary public for lots of different organizations was just gonna say following the royal family facebook page. We'll talk about you. Know the the different royals. And they're together their patron of this charity or that charity or that kind of thing and so it's like i get the feeling that i mean i. I read a lot of historical fiction and historical romance which i know is not entirely accurate But the whole idea of you know you're you you you have. The the idea is you have this title. You have this sort of power soda speaker this this your very visible so there is a big push to to do good works to do charity into bring awareness and two things. Any of this has been going on for a couple of centuries or more so you know seeing what they do you know. And we've we've seen articles of go with william and kate going to talk about you know mental health sedan meeting with people in again. The last year I just saw A bit about. I think it was the princess royal princess anne going and talking to medical personnel with the virus and stuff like that. So it's i mean yeah. We go in america. We're kind of thinking. Well you know we're not part of this. Why should we care you know system and that there is. There is some merit that but also it's like they're for the most part they're trying to do something good and to use their influence for some for good and and i you know you can't you can't you can't fault them for any of that. Obviously it's like kinda us a little bit more of that women's royalty or or whoever doing this so you know. Let them do it. Yeah yeah ooh According to the official website for the royal family over the course of his life The philip was Associated either as president patron honorary member or some other capacity with almost a thousand organizations. Wow yeah yes ed he should. The royals has kind of their focus. Yeah like christie was saying now that the younger royals especially william and catherine You know are yeah. They've received patronage is as as as we'll get here to phillips final years but also her majesty. The queen have started to lessen the amount of work that they do so they passed on some of those patriot edges to the younger royals but they also have subjects that are important to them like mental health. And in the duke's case he was really focused on virement industry sports and education. He also has a lot of military patronage is to Which both william and catherine have taken over Most of those In the last probably five years or so Because the the monarchy is the head of the military as well as kind of like the president here is technically the head of the united states military. Y- so you can actually go on a royal websites and look at all of the patriots shows that every member of the royal family has been associated with her majesty all the way down And you can search by like subject or you can just look at by a particular member of the royal family and you know i filtered it to just the duke of edinburgh and is a long long long list you know everything from the uk a lawn tennis association which is essentially the organization does wimbledon. Which i think. Kate is now actually the patriot of And to whatever you take your pick a he's he's he's been involved with a just a sheer number. He was president of basta for six years between nineteen fifty nine to sixty five And actually they just had the baptism and they made sure to acknowledge him One is a british institution as british essentially equivalent of the oscars but he was a former president of the organization So they made sure to acknowledge.

"Bride that He talks about how they want the perfect wedding day. Even royalty cannot with all the power and money that they have could not guarantee a perfect wedding day because this was Rationing was still a thing. Host will reward to To get the material needed to make her wedding dress. Elizabeth had to use ration coupons to buy the material for her gallon It being it's a beautiful dress when you would know rationing was happening at the time but a number of things happened the day of the wedding as she was at Buckingham palace getting ready. She did her own makeup and hair and stuff. Her tiara snapped. Ouch yes which. I've got sure exactly how that happened sooner. Real thick curly hair. Like a few of us who he'd be thankfully the court jeweler was on call just in case something. This happened So but he needed to go to his workshop to do the repair so they gave him a police escort to his workshop. Make the repairs and return in time to get the tr on the bright. Oh my god does. It also happens that she had been gifted Some pearl necklaces and some pearl and diamond earrings to where she forgot those and so her private secretary had to rush back to saint james palace and get them and give them back to buckingham palace in time her official bridal portraits to be taken secretary also get a police scorch. They did say so. So i'm guessing. No i don't i don't know what the distances from from buckingham palace to saint james palace. It probably wasn't nearly as far as the world jeweler had travel problems. So so any anyone out there who you know has gotten married or we'll get married in his planning and freaking out about. Oh everything has to go off without a hitch Just you know take take heart in the fact that queen elizabeth's wedding had a few hiccups of its own. Yes don stress. Like the future queen of england can have a picture. Perfect wedding day without any hiccups. Then you can live and it will be a funny story to tell later. Anyway yes Obviously the ceremony ended up happening. They got married It was aired over bbc. Radio about two hundred million people around the world listened in So so they got married and after their honeymoon they moved into clarence house. Which is in london And they got Philip went back to his Back to the navy and did some work for them and a princess. Elizabeth started taking on some of the Official duties of doing events and stuff on behalf of her father and also in the process. They had two kids Charles was born in nineteen forty eight and then princess and followed in nineteen fifty. Philip continued his naval career until july of nineteen fifty one but Even though he technically finished his career in fifty one he still received a promotion and received the rank of commander in one thousand nine hundred eighty two probably because he was the husband of the princess of yes would be my guess gwynne. Win- sounds much better. Yes when you're married to into the royal family you get stuff like that. Yes so at this point. The early Nineteen fifty s. The king's health is starting to deteriorate so Both philip analysts. Beth earned the duke and duchess of edinburgh Start undertaking more and more royal duties. they did a tour of canada and fifty one in late nineteen fifty one and then in early nineteen fifty two the began a tour of other commonwealth countries and They were this was depicted in the crown fairly accurate. Lay at least as far as you official memoirs and memories go. They were in kenya. When word came king it passed away on the six february nineteen fifty two which essentially technically immediately made elizabeth queen so So they had to leave africa and immediately returned to the uk To prepare for her coronation so So she was officially crowned queen on the second of june nineteen fifty three and this started the i kind of tussle between this monarchy and the establishment. That had just kind of gone along with tradition. Up into this point. I think is the best way to put it. Because when The monarch comes into being taking taking the throne Their royal house has to be given a name and that's kind of like the lineage. The the legacy. Yeah it's like six like like most people. They have a surname last name. Family name idols. They have their house that yes of a last up yet. And that's how they tend to be referred to like you. We talk about like the tutors. Yes things like that yeah. So you'll here's henry tudor. That's his name twitter. Basically his last name. Yeah yeah so So philip's uncle. Lord mountbatten suggested house of mountbatten. Philip suggested house of edinburgh because that would be a a good compromise. 'cause that's both of their titles as duke and duchess and.

And then when you leave the university and go into studies of your own you will find it very important that you have chosen a field. Some province specially suited to you in which you can study and work. The most unhappy of all men is the man who cannot tell what he is going to do who has got no work cut out for him in the world and does not go into it for work is the grand cure of all the maladies and miseries that ever beset mankind. Honest work would you intend getting done. If in any vacant vague time you're in a straight is to choice of reading a very good indication for you. Perhaps the best you could get is towards some book. You have a great curiosity about your then in the ready est invest of all possible conditions to improve by that book.
