The royals have descended on Balmoral for a family holiday and we have a feeling the Queen is on the gin already.

When we heard Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth II, and Prince William were heading off on a family holiday this week, we must admit, we had a lot of questions.

For example, what kind of car games do the royal family play? Who's in charge of bringing the SPF 50? Does the Queen act as a back-up babysitter for Prince George and Princess Charlotte when Kate and Wills fancy a night out at the local pub?

According to Vogue, the British royal family is currently holidaying in Scotland and staying at Balmoral, the 50,000-acre estate in the Scottish Highlands once described by former prime minister Tony Blair as 'intriguing, the surreal and the utterly freaky'.

Over the weekend, the royal clan - including the likes of Prince William, Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla Parker Bowles, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, and Mike and Zara Tindall - were spotted attending a local church service in the small village of Crathie Kirk.

While the family were 'off duty', the queen was seen sporting a head-to-toe burnt orange number while Kate Middleton wore a wide-brim hat and brown coat.

Sadly, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were nowhere to be seen in Scotland, which would have made it the Suits actress' first family holiday with the royals.

But when your boyfriend reportedly whisks you off to celebrate your 36th birthday on an African safari (as Prince Harry did earlier this month), the sound of Barbour coats, Wellington boots, and rainy Scotland doesn't exactly compare, does it?
