Four Weddings and a Funeral

This classic British romantic-comedy tells the story of Hugh Grant’s character Charles, his friends and the four weddings and one funeral which they attend.

We are very glad that kilts made an appearance at least once in the four weddings that feature in this fantastic film. At MacGregor and MacDuff we offer a range of extra tartan touches to make enhance your special occasion!

Bonnie Prince Charlie

An old Scottish classic, Bonnie Prince Charlie tells the historic story of Charles Edward Stuart the ambitious leader of the Jacobite Rising of 1745. Bonnie Prince Charlie led an insurrection to overthrow the Protestant House of Hanover and was defeated in Battle of Culloden. As you can imagine the film included many kilts, worn in the traditional style! This is the original styling of the kilt known as the “feileadh mhór” or “big wrap” you can learn more about the history of the kilt here.


Bonnie Prince Charlie’s story even inspired the names of the formal and informal Highlandwear that are still popular today. The traditional Prince Charlie kilt jacket and waistcoat is the perfect formal outfit choice and is typically worn with a bow tie whilst the Jacobite shirt also known as a Ghillie shirt is a common informal choice when worn with a kilt.
