De Monarch, 93, braved the cold weather conditions and opted for a light blue jacket and matching hat with floral details when she attended Sunday service in the Scottish Highlands.

She accessorized with a pair of elegant pearl earrings and added an emerald green brooch to complete her look.

Her Majesty will be accompanied by other members of the royal family – including her son Prince Charles – who is known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland – and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall.

Camilla smiled at the camera when she was pictured in a green and yellow checkered dress with collar and matching moss green colored jacket.

Meanwhile, Prince Charles, pictured without his seat belt, opted for a smart gray suit and a striped tie.

Sunday service comes after a busy period for the queen, after joining other members of the royal family yesterday for large crowds to participate in the annual Highland Games meeting in the small village of Braemar in Aberdeenshire.

She is the patron of the historical event, which takes place a short distance from the Balmoral summer residence of the royals, and is known for visiting regularly.

Upon receiving a gift of flowers from girls who traditionally wore tartan, the royal family was once again accompanied by Prince Charles and Camilla – but also accompanied by Autumn Phillips and her husband Peter Phillips, the son of Princess Anne.

The Queen had received Boris Johnson in Balmoral on Friday night, but the Prime Minister is not expected to attend the games, because he aborted the expected weekend-long visit to return to Downing Street after a turbulent week in British politics.

The organizers of the prestigious event said they were expecting a hectic day, with only a few tickets left to view the many traditional competitions.

Participants participated in both running and pocket races, throwing the caber, hammer throwing, tug of war and highland dancing.

The queen usually goes to the Scottish retreat of Balmoral every summer and has regularly attended church with various members of her family on Sundays.

She was accompanied by the duke and duchess of Cambridge and their family last month and dressed for the heat of the holiday in a bright pink ensemble.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and baby Archie will not appear on Balmoral this year.

Sources near the couple insist that the decision is not a & # 39; blunt & # 39; must be seen. In reality, Harry, 34, rarely goes to Queen Deeside's estate these days, although he spent every summer there as a child.

The attraction of fly fishing in the Dee, picnics and barbecues in the rain and long wanderers through the mosquito-covered highlands around Balmoral have never had so much appeal.

The sources also emphasized that now that the couple now live in Frogmore Cottage on the Queen's estate in Windsor, they see the king much more often than most family members. Yet the decision will inevitably raise eyebrows at those who see Balmoral as something of a three-line royal whip and an unparalleled opportunity to spend quality time with the aging queen.

Charles and Camilla spend most of July and August in Birkhall, their adjacent estate, while Princess Anne, the Duke and Duchess of York and the Count and Countess of Wessex and their children, Louise and James, have all been on vacation with the Queen and Prince Philip.
