Queen Elizabeth is currently taking a break from royal duties at her estate Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
She travelled to the Aberdeenshire area early in July and is expected to spend a few months there taking a break from royal engagements.
It is well known to the public that Scotland is one of the Queen’s favourite places, as she spent her childhood vacationing at the Balmoral estate. The Queen’s parents were the first royals to take an interest in the estate since the death of Queen Victoria.
The Queen and Prince Philip also spent part of their honeymoon there in 1947, where the couple stayed at the Birkhall hunting lodge located on the Balmoral grounds.
During the 2012 Jubilee celebrations, the Queen said: “Scotland has played such a very special part in our lives, and that of my family, over the years and we have greatly enjoyed our frequent visits.”
The card was sent to Mr and Ms Bishop to celebrate the couple’s 61st wedding anniversary which took place earlier this year on April 1.
The card features a photo of the Queen in a blue floral outfit with the message: “I am so pleased to know that you celebrated your sixty-first wedding anniversary on 1st April 2022.Fans flocked to social media to share their thoughts on the Queen’s kind gesture, with user @eithne_beancheilteach73 calling her majesty “a class act”.
Other fans recalled when their own family members received a special card from the monarch, as user @cathmorg said: “So lush! I remember how much it meant to my parents to have a special card from her Maj.”
Another user @bridgeadaire wrote: “My parents also celebrated their 60th anniversary on the same day as yours, they were also thrilled with their card!”
User, @ohalloran1963, added: “Fantastic momentum from the Queen! Congratulations to you Mom and Dad!”
