The queen looked royal in royal blue today when she was accompanied by Prince Edward and Lady Louise Windsor for a Sunday service at her Balmoral estate.
Her Majesty, 93, is staying in the seven-bedroom Craigowan lodge on the estate, about a mile from the castle that is currently open to tourists.
With her characteristic brightly colored coordinating suit, Elizabeth II wore her jacket and hat together as she sat next to her youngest granddaughter Louise, 14.

Accessorising with classic pearls and a sparkling brooch, the queen chatted with her family while she was driven to worship.
Traveling with his mother was Prince Edward, 55, who was wearing a tweed jacket and a dark green band.
Lady Louise almost fitted her grandmother in a navy blue cardigan, which she combined with a fresh white shirt.
Also in the small gray church next to the castle was Dr. Alan Gibb, a retired ear, nose and throat specialist, who is 100 next week and expects a letter from the queen who has returned to the south by that time.

The Queen is organizing a garden party at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday and is expected to depart from Aberdeen Airport on Monday or Tuesday.
The monarch always arrives at the end of May to be informed of the management of the 50,000-hectare estate that she owns as a private person.
Her Majesty wants the estate to be as environmentally friendly as possible and has planted thousands of trees – at its own expense – on the upper reaches of the River Muick, a tributary of the River Dee.

Her four-member Ranger Service patrols and watches over the most important species in wildlife and offers advice and their expertise to the 50,000 visitors a year.
Elizabeth II's visit coincided with the 200th anniversary of the birth of her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, who first bought Albert Balmoral Castle with her husband in 1852.
The City of Leeds Pipe Band led the celebrations for visitors who played twice on the large front garden of the castle.
The band had a descendant of Angus Mackay, the first whistleblower of Queen Victoria.
The queen had a small private party in Craigowan with Prince Edward and his daughter, Lady Louise Windsor.

A local source said: & # 39; It was a small but important occasion. & # 39;
Although often accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, 97, it seems that the queen's husband had stayed home while she was being driven by the driver to Sunday service.
The flight visit is in the midst of many parties within the royal family; the queen recently received her eighth great-grandchild, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Last week her cousin daughter, Lady Gabriella Windsor, got married at St George's Chapel in Windsor – almost exactly one year after the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from 2018.
