The Queen moved into Balmoral castle, in Aberdeenshire, earlier this month for the start of her annual summer break. Crathie Kirk lies next door to the royal estate and the Queen is a regular presence at services during her annual holiday.

The monarch frequently hosts guests during the summer stay and today looked in excellent spirits as she stepped out with her children and grandchildren.
