No, she’s not at Balmoral Castle. She stay at Craigowan Lodge on the Castle’s ground before starting her actual Balmoral stay and that’s not until late July early August.

As it's a bank holiday weekend here in the UK perhaps HM and the Wessexes decided to take a short break at Balmoral together. As others have said, summer holiday for HM doesn't start until July so they'll all probably be back by Tuesday.

The castle is still open to the public so HM must be staying elsewhere, probably Craigowan Lodge. We know the royals use the Balmoral and Sandringham estates more than they use the main houses.

I do wish the Queen would wear a seat belt like her granddaughter is doing. Not only is she breaking the law (unless she has a medical certificate saying there is a medical reason why she can't wear one) but it sets a bad example. Seat belts save lives and health.

Not that I'm defending not using a seatbelt, and I agree that one should. However, if they are on private land, that's not breaking any law.

I would bet my last garlic roll that this is the case. They were on private land. Usually when the Queen is traveling on public roads, she'll have a driver and be all bundled up in the back seat. Seat belts and all.

Thanks Jacqui, I didn't realise they were on private land. My mistake.

The Queen certainly isn't up there for her summer trip yet. Trooping of the color and Ascot she isn't going to miss.

Her 'official summer holiday' starts in August with a visit to the guards. But she often goes up a few days early. But not this early. Seems she and the Wessexes decided to spend a long weekend up there.

She will be staying at Craigowan. She stays there whenever she goes to Balmoral when the castle is open to the public.

The main summer break is from late July to early October.

The Queen and other members of the family do go up at other times e.g. Charles and Camilla are usually there from Christmas Day afternoon to well into the New Year (Camilla not always all that time but Charles is), along with the Easter break for two or three weeks e.g. this year they were there from Easter which was 1st April and still there after Louis was born on the 23rd with the odd visit elsewhere but based at Birkhall.

The Queen does go up for the odd long weekend.

As for the seatbelt - she never wears one arguing that people want to see her and that a shoulder belt would obscure the view. She may, however, be wearing a lap belt which can't be seen. I have a couple of elderly friends who have medical permission to only have lap belts in their cars due to the issues caused by shoulder belts on their health.

Queen Elizabeth hosted a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace today, May 31.

The Duke of Cambridge, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra and Princess Eugenie were present as well:

Of course at The Queen’s age, one can look frail from time to time, but Her Majesty has been looking young and very happy lately.

Is this area the place for garden parties? Looks like the same area where they had that other party earlier in the week.

Indeed, this is the main garden at BP. They had a garden party to commemorate the PoW's 70th a few weeks ago.

Princess Eugenie and Beatrice are always mentioned in the CC when they attend garden parties, as well as BP receptions.

It’s the Epsom Derby today so I imagine we all see the Queen and occasionally other family members go. Does the Queen have any runners this year?
