The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were joined by two very special guests in Scotland this weekend as they enjoyed the last of their summer break in Balmoral with the Queen. The royal pair were making their way to a service in Crathie Kirk near the Queen's estate when they were spotted with two guests.

The royal companions were none other than Camilla's younger sister Annabel and her husband Simon Elliot. The fab four looked in high spirits as they made their way to meet several other members of the royal family at church – reuniting for the weekend in the perfect countryside escape.

The royals were joined by Camilla's younger sister Annabel and her husband Simon Elliot

Camilla was visibly thrilled to spend the weekend with her stylish interior designer sister, beaming as she sat beside her husband Charles who drove them to church. Wearing an elegant fur trim coat, Annabel, 70, who is two years Camilla's junior, looked the spitting image of her older sister as she made the short journey to the Sunday service.

Sarah, meanwhile, wore a red dress teamed with a black jacket with statement sleeves.
