The Queen and Prince Philip will leave Windsor Castle for the first time since they began protecting the estate. Members of the Royal Family usually escape to Balmoral in Scotland to spend their summer, and this year will be no different. However, some of their favorite events will not be allowed to continue due to the pandemic, as revealed by Chris Ship and Lizzie Robinson, hosts of the ITV Royal Rota podcast.

Ms Robinson told listeners: “They’re going to the Braemar gathering, seeing all the Highland Games.“The Braemar rally is normally the first weekend in September.

“This is where you see the tug of war, the hammer throw, the caber throw.

“There won’t be any of that this year, we won’t have any of these photos. ”

She continued, “But they can spend their summer vacation at Balmoral.

“It’s something that we know they like.

“When they leave depends on whether or not the government’s guidelines remain in place. ”

The pair are expected to head to Scotland from early August and stay until September.

It is not yet clear where Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will spend their summer.

The couple normally travel to Birkhall on the Balmoral Estate, where they have spent much of the confinement.

Camilla was last seen at Highgrove House in Gloucestershire where she was given a new role.

The Duchess of Cornwall has been appointed the new Colonel-in-Chief of the Rifles Regiment, a post transferred from Prince Philip.

Her stepfather completed his half of the ceremony from the Windsor Castle Quadrangle, 85 miles from Highgrove.
