The Queen has imbued her children and grandchildren with a deep and abiding love of the lifestyle that Balmoral offers. Beatrice and Eugenie have both stated the loved their annual holidays there and still do.

I love the annual photos of members of the BRF at Scottish games. Somehow they always seem the most relaxed and are often snapped in gales of laughter.

Yes. I must say they’re blessed to have tranquil homes like Balmoral, Sandringham and Windsor. Those places offer very relaxed atmospheres and plenty of activities to explore. They do seem to enjoy themselves at the Highland Games, too. I wish the younger royals was interested in going.

The Queen was pictured arriving at a lodge on the Balmoral estate in Scotland with Prince Philip today, ahead of a lunch with Wessex family.

Ouch! That told me.

Sarah always goes up the first week and leaves either on the Saturday or Sunday with Philip arriving on the Sunday - after church.

We don't usually get pictures of Sarah after she arrives at the castle, only reports of her arriving and leaving from Aberdeen airport.
This is all that was needed to respond to my query - clearly I wasn't in the know if I was asking, so a response like this is just fine to satisfy my knowledge. Now I know.

Carrie Symonds will accompany Boris Johnson when he stays with the Queen at Balmoral later this summer.

The Prime Minister's girlfriend, 31, will attend the traditional weekend at the monarch's Scottish estate, it is understood.

Every year the Queen spends the summer at Balmoral Castle, Aberdeenshire, where she is joined by other members of the royal family - and traditionally hosts the prime minister for a weekend in September.

It is thought that Ms Symonds will be the first unmarried partner of a sitting PM to stay at Balmoral.

I wonder if the Phillps and Tindall families will be there this weekend? William, Peter and Zara seem to have coordinated their family visits to Balmoral in recent years.

It would make sense for Tindall's and Philip's to be there IMO, we saw the Yorks and Wessex's there already so its their turn as such.

Sadly, their privacy was invaded. Since when the Cambridge’s started being photographed heading to Balmoral and the pictures published?

I disagree. They were in a public airport, no one impeded them or got in their face. It was the kind of nice real family photo that endears them to the public.

In the past, the only way we would know the Cambridge’s were up at Balmoral was through the regular pictures we would get of the family heading to church on Sunday and the rare pictures of the family going to a family lunch. I don’t recall seeing pictures of the Cambridge’s being pictured at the airport heading to Balmoral until now.

It is smart PR after Sussexes were blasted for using a private jet the Cambridges dear not use one to get to Balmoral.
Had there been no criticism of the Sussexes the Cambridges would have either taken a private jet or helicopter like they have in the past.

And? They were in a public place, they accepted that there might be pictures of them in that public place, no one was in their faces with cameras or bothering them in any way, and everyone's day went on just as it should have. I'm not really understanding the problem here. Just because they haven't been pictured doing this in previous years certainly doesn't mean it didn't happen but whether it did or not there's really no issue here as they were not in a private place or in somewhere that it would be considered invasive to photograph them.

In trying to appease the press they risk their security by all flying together.

Not very smart!

I am not sure how they are trying to appease the press here. William and the children have usually flown together if they are going to one destination. This is with the consent of the monarch.
