It's been a royally good week for Princess Beatrice, who just rung in her 30th birthday.

Now, the Duchess of York's oldest daughter is spending some quality time with her grandmother.

On August 12th, Beatrice was snapped alongside Queen Elizabeth as her father Prince Andrew, the Duke of York sat in the front of the vehicle, with the family driving to a Sunday church service at Crathie Church in Aberdeenshire.

The church, which is a few minutes from the Queen's Balmoral residence, also welcomed Her Majesty's youngest Prince Edward and his family, wife Sophie of Wessex and their two children, Lady Louise and James Viscount.

The Queen shined in a very pretty powder blue coat dress, teamed with a matching hat.

Beatrice decided to go for a more muted tone, dressing in a black coat dress with a wide-brim hat.

Lady Louise proved she is a chip off the old block, donning a Queen Elizabeth-inspired outfit - a pale blue button up with a darker cardigan draped on her shoulders.

Queen Elizabeth simply loves her summer break in Scotland.

She made her way to Balmoral last week and it is expected she'll stay until September.

This year, Prince Philip opted to skip their traditional summer as he recuperates from a hip operation earlier this year.

Eugenie has previously said of Balmoral: "It's the most beautiful place on earth. I think Granny is the most happy there."

Her Majesty's break often sees her receive many close visitors, including the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The Queen is believed to have extended Duchess Meghan and her husband Prince Harry an official invite to their holiday home.

"An invitation to Balmoral, where the Queen is expected to remain until September, is traditionally part of the initiation into the Royal family," Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams shared.

Duchess Kate and Prince William will no doubt make their way there soon, bringing along their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and little Prince Louis.
