Queen Elizabeth II is back in Scotland for Royal Summer tradition and will be spending her late summers including August and September in Balmoral Castle.
Queen Elizabeth II travelled to Scotland to enjoy her summers from her royal residency in Windsor Castle. She stays for two months in her rural home in Balmoral. The majesty mostly spends her first night at a stone house named Craigowan Lodge. It is a mile away from the actual holiday destination, Balmoral Castle.
She will be followed by additional royal family members later in the Balmoral Castle. Since the Castle is open for public till August 2, Queen will be living somewhere else in a seven bedroom lodge on the estate. She will finally move to the actual destination where she spends her time. She traditionally spends her time in Scotland where she is on a break from her royal duties until late September or early October.
Scotland is favorite place of the 96 year old monarch. Queen Elizabeth II along with her husband Prince Philip has spent a part of their honeymoon period in the palace in 1947.
Scottish Castle has been serving as a private retreat for the British family for more than 150 years. The monarch is accompanied by many royal family members later during her stay. The royal visits are expected by the majesty’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren (and, also their beloved dogs).
The Queen also hold parties and picnics for friends during their summer escape on this 7000 acres estate.
Some sources informed that, Prince Harry and Meghan with children Archie and Lilibet, are not invited to the Balmoral Castle to visit the Queen. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex haven’t made it to the guest list this time round. Although, they made their appearance at the Queen’s Jubilee Celebration in UK but some tension was noticed. They were probably not happy with their welcome.
