I'm fairly certain Prince Philip is wearing the Gordon tartan. He is entitled to wearing that tartan as Royal Colonel of Highlanders (Seaforth, Gordons and Camerons) who use Gordon tartan when wearing kilts (although they use Seaforth Mackenzie when in trews).
Initially, I thought he might be wearing one of the Royal tartans - the Prince Regent one - but there is no red in Philip's kilt and the lines don't match either.

Prince Charles is wearing the Hunting Stewart (not Royal Stewart) tartan.

Thanks, Artemesia - I wish I could get better at ID'ing tartans. I'm working on it.

You are welcome.
Here is a very useful website for Royal Tartans: there are unfortunately only a few pictures, but the background information is sound.
Of course, both Prince Charles and Prince Philip often wear tartans of the Regiments they are Royal Colonels of, making identification a bit harder.

They both look absolutely wonderful! It's lovely to see Her Majesty's smile . I'd love to know what was so amusing though. In some shots, it looks like they're full out laughing .

I always love the fact that Camilla wears a beret with a feather in Scotland - I know it is traditional and that I have probably used the wrong term but I still like how she dresses.

Anne even looked good as well.

I believe its called a tam o'shanter in Scotland.

With Camilla wearing a tam and Charles always in his kilt, you can tell these two really have a love affair with Scotland.

Thank you - I knew it had a special name.

Queen and Prince Philip pictured for the first time after the Duke’s illness as they cheer on spectators at Highland Games
Quote:
It's been a difficult summer for The Queen, who was left shell-shocked when naked pictures of her grandson Prince Harry appeared online just weeks after her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, was taken to hospital for the third time in eight months. But Her Majesty looked to be in good spirits today as she cheered on competitors during a sack race at the Braemar Gathering in Scotland. Clearly amused by the antics, the 86-year-old monarch was pictured laughing out loud and gesturing with her hands as she sat alongside her husband during the event.

Am I the only one who thinks it's cute they did this together? Prince Philip makes me laugh every time I see him, and it's nice to see his son with him. Future Duke of Edinburgh and the present Duke. Nice touch.

Not only do I agree w/you Molly, but how fantastic is it to see Prince Phillip out and about and looking so great after his health scares earlier this year? HRH looks like his old feisty self and it's wonderful to see!!
