The Queen at Balmoral

Hello Magazine has published the video above as part of an article: “Picnics, BBQs and bracing walks: how the Queen spends her summer in Balmoral”, which includes this quote from Princess Eugenie speaking on ITV’s Our Queen At Ninety:

“It’s the most beautiful place on earth. I think Granny is the most happy there. I think she really, really loves the Highlands.”

“Walks, picnics, dogs – a lot of dogs, there’s always dogs – and people coming in and out all the time. It’s a lovely base for Granny and Grandpa, for us to come and see them up there; where you just have room to breathe and run.”
