    Holyrood Palace - Abby - The most famous wedding of all to take place here was that of the twenty-two year old Mary, Queen of Scots, to the nineteen year old Darnley on 29th July 1565. Darnley placed three rings on Mary's finger and knelt beside her while the catholic priest said prayers for their union. Darnley, whose vacillating religious beliefs were notorious, was Protestant at the time and left Mary in the private chapel of Holyrood to hear Mass. A trumpet fanfare accompanied the couple's procession to the Great Hall where a sumptuous feast awaited them. Crowds cheered outside throwing gold coins, while Mary and Darnley were being entertained with a masque and a dance.These festivities continued for the following two days, but he euphoria was of short duration, as Mary soon realized that she had married a complete waster.
