Beatrice's father, Prince Andrew, also joined them riding with the queen's chauffeur.

It was a family reunion this morning with another of the Queen's granddaughters who attended the service.

Lady Louise Windsor, daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex was photographed arriving in a separate car not far behind.

Members of royalty were hit by a rain patch this morning, but that did not seem to discourage their spirits, although the Queen wrapped herself under a blanket for the return trip.

Crathie Church is located next to Balmoral and the Queen is a regular presence in the services during their annual vacations.

As usual, you could see the royal guard parading outside the church before the arrival of His Majesty, to the delight of the public.

His Majesty was received by commanding officer Johnny Thompson to inspect the guards.

His Majesty usually arrives in Scotland in August after the Balmoral Castle is closed to visitors and complete security checks are carried out on the grounds.

The queen moved to the castle after spending the last weeks at Craigowan Lodge, a smaller lodge on the Aberdeenshire estate, which is also known as the Enchanted Mansion.

The castle is open to the public until the end of July and has been prepared for the arrival of the monarch during the last week.

Crowds of supporters gathered to receive the Queen on Monday, where she is expected to remain at her residence until the beginning of October.

The last time they saw His Majesty was Sunday when he attended last week's service at the church.

Charles and Camilla also have a home, Birkhall, at Balmoral Estate and will undoubtedly spend time with the monarch in the coming weeks.

Last year, the Queen departed for Balmoral in mid-July and did not finish her annual summer vacation in Highland until the first week of October.

The last public commitments of His Majesty were on July 13 and 14, when he welcomed foreign visitors, especially President Donald Trump, to Windsor Castle.

The monarch greeted the president of the United States and his wife Melania in the ring of the royal residence.

The Queen enjoys a more discreet existence during her stay in Scotland, with her former royal protection officer Richard Griffin who recently revealed that she had a conversation with unsuspecting American tourists visiting the estate dressed in tweed and a scarf.

It is said that Balmoral, which was purchased by Prince Albert for £ 32,000 in 1852, is the Queen's favorite home.

During his stay at the castle, he relaxes by going for a walk on the Aberdeenshire estate, eating picnics and cooking barbecues.

Princess Eugenie had previously said of Balmoral: "It's the most beautiful place in the world. I think Granny is the happiest there.

"I think she really loves the Highlands."
