Balmoral Palace meant to Queen Elizabeth II that when she died, she could be alone to have a picnic with her husband.
It is a place where the Queen enjoys outdoor activities such as horse riding and sightseeing. Princess Eugenie confirmed the deep love of her grandmother from where she lived many years ago.
Speaking on the set of “Our Queen at Ninety,” Eugenie said, “I think Grandma is the happiest person there. I think she really likes the mountains.”
Malcolm Ross, a senior member of the Queen’s household, once said, At Balmoral, he knows every inch. She can enjoy being a citizen.
According to the author of “Queen Elizabeth” Sally Bedell Smith, the place where the Queen entertained, filled the house with family members, where she would receive guests at the side door. The Scottish island is also where the Queen and her late husband, Prince Philip, enjoyed their picnics.
The queen always set the table outside, while Philip tended the grill. After everyone has eaten, the Queen stacks the plates, puts on rubber gloves and washes the dishes.
Living in the mountains gives the Queen a normal life, as she will play card games at night or read for fun. Bedell Smith writes that Her Majesty is often seen in the nearby village of Ballater and online at local shops.
It was at Balmoral that the royal family, including Prince William and Prince Harry, learned of Princess Diana’s death on August 31, 1997. The Queen was protective of the children there, believing it was better for them to live in “a paradise calm” rather than immediately. they returned to London after losing their beloved mother.
