The last time Her Majesty was spotted out and about was last Sunday when she attended last week’s service at the church.

Crathie Church lies next door to Balmoral and the Queen is a regular presence at services during her annual holiday.

Charles and Camilla also have a home, Birkhall, on the Balmoral Estate and will no doubt be spending time with the monarch over the coming weeks.

Last year the Queen departed for Balmoral in mid July and did not end her annual Highland summer holiday until the first week in October.

Her Majesty’s last public engagements were on 13th and 14th July, when she welcomed overseas visitors – most notably President Donald Trump – to Windsor castle. 

The monarch greeted the US president and his wife Melania in the quadrangle of the royal residence ahead.
