  1. Lors de son arrivée à Balmoral, la reine arborait –comme chaque année- sa broche insigne du Royal Régiment of Scotland - Magnifique, lumineuse dans un manteau léger « fuchsia » au délicat petit boutonnage accompagné d'un chapeau fleuri de la même couleur ainsi qu’une robe estivale que je crois voir imprimée - Bonnes vacances d’été à la Reine !

  2. A joyous vision in pink. This will be the first time she has been at Balmoral without Prince Philip. I hope that all the same the Queen will be able to relax and enjoy her time In Scotland. We love her.

    1. The sombre colour of the Scottish sky helps the colour to stand out even more.
      Happy holiday to her Majesty.

      Yeah, I too am wondering what 'sombre colour of the Scottish sky' is being referred to, since there is not a scrap of any sky to be seen in the above photos. In fact the shadows cast on the ground indicate a bright and sunny day.

    2. Her majesty is elegant, cordial and a true leader. She has carried out her reign with dignity and good humor.

  8. The queen arrived obviously in a good mood, fortunately. Her joy may be spoiled by the news of today about prince Andrew. She is not responsible for that but it will inevitably affect her.

    In several of these pictures, the guard must be a substantial gentleman, or a trick of the camera makes her Majesty appear particularly diminutive. Her shoulder and his waistbelt are nearly equal. Long may she reign.

  11. She looks so lovely in these bright tones, pinks and blues especially. She, of course, has her proper Royal Regiment of Scotland badge. Her smile and amazing faithfulness are beyond words, such strength in such a tiny lady. Always lovely to see her - such a commanding figure with soldiers and with the horse.

    Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth looks lovely; no doubt she can't wait to get inside, get changed and head out across the estate in the LandRover. It is so picturesque around Balmoral.
