The Queen traditionally spends three months of the summer in Scotland. This year, she arrived at her Balmoral home for some rest and relaxation after a hectic few months of engagements to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee and then the Olympics.

In December last year, Philip had an operation to clear a blocked heart artery and spent Christmas in hospital.
