The Queen has joined the crowds to watch the annual Braemar Gathering alongside Prince Charles and Camilla, and royal watchers will be thrilled. Her Majesty attended the annual Braemar Gathering in Scotland after finishing up her summer break at Balmoral, and the Queen is said to thoroughly enjoy the event, which features traditional highland games such as tug-of-war and stone-throwing, as well as charming highland dancing and pipe band performances. The monarch smiled happily as she arrived at the event, looking radiant in a purple outfit. Camilla opted for red formal wear, and side-by-side the pair looked very bright and colourful. Earlier in the day, Prince Charles and the Duchess hosted Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his partner Carrie Symonds for tea at Birkhall, following their overnight stay with the Queen at Balmoral.
