Queen Elizabeth II’s photos during her time in Balmoral Estate were recently uploaded online since Her Majesty is currently in the property for this year’s summer vacation.
Julie Turley, a journalist for Express, said that the Queen wanted to protect Prince William and Prince Harry from the media after Princess Diana’s death that’s why she took her grandsons to Balmoral Estate. But even before this, the Queen went to the property with her own children.
In 1955, a young Prince Charles and Princess Anne are seen happily leading a pair of ponies across the Scottish farmland. In another snap, the Queen fondly helps Princess Anne go through the castle’s window with the assistance of Prince Charles.
Another snap shows the Queen pushing Prince Andrew’s stroller while Princess Anne was looking on. One picture also showed the Queen bending forward to assist her son while he is playing with his green car.
Other photos of Her Majesty in Balmoral Estate showed her exploring the grounds with Prince Philip, the Queen fishing with her husband, Her Majesty arriving off the plane in Scotland with three of her Corgi dogs in tow.
In related news, the Queen has already started her summer in Balmoral Estate but without Prince Philip. She arrived in the estate last week and was hilariously welcomed by a cheek Shetland Pony mascot Cruachan IV.
According to Vogue, the pony relieved itself while in front of the Queen. Her Majesty couldn’t help but tell the horse, “Here we go again.” That wasn’t the first time that the Queen encountered Cruachan IV.
Months ago, the pony also tried to bite the Queen’s flowers. Cruachan IV also tried to bite Prince Harry’s finger during his and Meghan Markle’s trip to Edinburgh. Markle couldn’t help but laugh following her husband’s encounter with the naughty pony.
