Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank have been spotted arriving at the Queen's Scottish residence, Balmoral. The couple, who married in 2018, were snapped at the royal estate in photos which surfaced on Twitter on Wednesday.

Princess Eugenie, who was dressed casually in black leggings and a green wax jacket, appeared to have just exited a Land Rover and could be seen carrying a large orange box, which looked to be from Hermes – perhaps a gift for the Queen? Her husband wore a blue sweater and dark trousers and the pair both had relaxed expressions.

WATCH: Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie reunite for very special reason

It's tradition for the Queen and Prince Philip to spend their summer holidays privately in Scotland, and this year is no different. After a busy few months of carrying out duties remotely amid the ongoing pandemic, the monarch, 94, can now enjoy a few months off out of the public eye. 

The couple can also expect visits from members of their family throughout August and September. Eugenie and Jack are not the only royals to have made the trip from England to Scotland this month.

The Queen's youngest son, Prince Edward, his wife, the Countess of Wessex, and their two children, 16-year-old Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, 12, have also been spotted at Balmoral. The family joined the Queen last week, when the monarch was photographed enjoying a walk around the grounds with Louise and James.

This year, visiting royals are likely to stay in separate accommodation in order to cooperate with social distancing rules.

Princess Eugenie always enjoys spending time with the Queen

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are currently staying at their Birkhall home, located on the Balmoral Estate, and have reportedly considered extending their stay so that Charles can spend more time enjoying one of his favourite past-times, fly fishing.

Prince William, Kate and the couple's three young children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are also expected to visit the Queen in August, as they usually do at this time of year. Last month, the Cambridges enjoyed a break on the Isles of Scilly, where they were spotted cycling and greeting fellow holidaymakers.
