Queen Elizabeth looks to be having a quality summer with her nearest and dearest, and her latest weekly trip to church at Balmoral is case in point.

Every summer, the Queen enjoys spending some quality time in the Scottish location, making regular visits to church on a Sunday.

And when the time rolls around each year, royal watchers are always excited to see which royals have chosen to join the Queen for the weekly tradition.

This week, Queen Elizabeth was joined by her son Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, with the family being pictured driving by car to the Sunday service.

The royal’s grandchildren Lady Louise Windsor and James Viscount Severn were also seen in the car.

Looks like quite the family affair!

The Queen was seen heading to church at Balmoral alongside her family.


True to form, Her Majesty was seen in a gorgeous matching light blue ensemble, while Sophie was seen in a stunning shade of navy blue, complete with a matching hat.

The stylish royal wore her blonde hair in a chic pony tail – very stylish!

Sophie and the Queen sat side-by-side in the car.


Prince Edward, who was seated in the front was also all smiles as the family travelled to and from the service.

It is also understood Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla were in attendance at the service – the pair were also seen attending church in Balmoral last week alongside Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

Prince Andrew was all smiles as the sun beamed down on their official transportation.


In a report from Hello!, it was revealed the Wessex family have enjoyed spending the past week with the Queen, partaking in outdoor activities including horse riding and fly fishing.

Over the next two weeks, it is expected that even more royal family members will come to visit the Queen, including the likes of Duchess Catherine and Prince William, as well as Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry.

For the royal family, August is typically spent holidaying and relaxing before they head back to their usual duties in September.

Balmoral is at the centre of royal summertime tradition, with the Queen having visited the Scottish estate for many years.

Previously, Princess Eugenie has opened up about the magic of the place, revealing that the location entails “Walks, picnics, dogs – a lot of dogs, there’s always dogs.”

She also added that there are “people coming in and out all the time. It’s a lovely base for Granny and Grandpa, for us to come and see them up there; where you just have room to breathe and run.”

It certainly sounds dreamy!

The Queen is a big fan of Balmoral!
