The Queen usually starts her Scottish holiday in August, but has gone at least a week erlier than usual this year. I wonder why? Or has she done that before.

Balmoral will remain open to the public until July 31st so it is expected she will stay at nearby Craigown Lodge until then. She has stayed there before I believe.

Philip didn't attend the Sunday service, did he travel with the Queen to Sctland or is he arriving later?

It's the end of July that she starts. You know when she is gone because BP is open to the public now. Remember when she remarked that she wished the baby aka George would come soon because she was going on holiday. Philip does his own thing He could have gone to Sandringham to check on things there. Next week is Cowes Week so he may go there. Eventually he will make it up to Balmoral.

The Queen used to stay in London until after the 4th August for her mother's birthday but since she died she has been going to Balmoral in the last week in July rather than during the first week in August. She will return to London in either the last week in September or the first in October by which time Philip will have retired.

Ah, thank you. I do remember early August being mentioned before.

Probably explains also hearing of her staying at Craigowan Lodge on occasion and possibly that Philip waits until Balmoral itself is available

BBC/Sky News Channels are likely to have live coverage from the event, and there will of course be videos, articles and pictures about it.

Thanks iceflower! I've already posted many articles/videos of it in the retirement thread, because I thought that was the best place to put it.

"This morning saw the official start to her Majesty The Queen’s annual stay in Balmoral, her home on Royal Deeside in the north east of Scotland.
She was welcomed by Balaklava Company, 5th Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland (5 SCOTS), who provided a Guard of Honour as she arrived, along with the Regimental Mascot, Shetland Pony Cruachan IV."

Sometimes if a person here at TRF that is knowledgeable in my eyes when it comes to things pertaining to the BRF, I'll click on their DF article link and in this one I wasn't disappointed. I got quite a chuckle out of Cruachan the pony that seems to steal the show at Balmoral. Cheeky little guy! Eating the Queen's posies and then making himself known to get the Queen's attention.

Priceless!
