The King and Queen are presently enjoying their summer vacation in Scotland, and were seen attending a church service at Crathie Kirk last Sunday.
Charles, aged 74, and Camilla, aged 76, who are assumed to be residing at Birkhall, are likely to invite their family members to Balmoral Castle in the upcoming days.
Today, which is Wednesday, is the final opportunity for the general public to explore the Castle's grounds, gardens, and exhibitions.
The King's stay at Balmoral was slightly postponed due to his reported decision to extend the summer opening hours for the public.
In previous years, Queen Elizabeth II would usually arrive at the estate in early August, where she would be welcomed by a Pipe Band.
Throughout the years, the late Queen and the late Duke of Edinburgh would host their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren during their summer getaway.
Princess Eugenie had previously shared her cherished memories of Balmoral in the documentary “Our Queen at Ninety” in 2016, stating, “It's the most beautiful place on earth.”
She further mentioned, “I believe Granny is happiest there, she really adores the Highlands… Walks, picnics, dogs – lots of dogs, there are always dogs! And people coming and going all the time. The entire family is there, making it a wonderful hub for Granny and Grandpa – for us to visit them there, where there's ample space to relax and enjoy.”
It is anticipated that Charles will continue his late mother's tradition and probably be accompanied by the Prince and Princess of Wales and their three offspring at Balmoral. Additionally, the King's siblings – Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward – along with their families, are expected to join. Camilla, being a grandmother to five grandchildren from her children Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes, is also likely to have her grandchildren join the royal family during the summer.
Charles and Camilla are expected to remain in Scotland for the commemoration of the late Queen's passing on 8 September. On this day, they will choose to spend their time privately, without any public arrangements or a family gathering to observe the anniversary at Balmoral.
On 8 September 2022, Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the age of 96 while at Balmoral, concluding her 70-year reign.
Previously, Her Late Majesty would privately observe the anniversary of her father King George VI's passing, which occurred on 6 February 1952, at her Sandringham estate.
