I hope HM has a peaceful and enjoyable time at Balmoral. As stated in the article, the Wessex's will be with her often as well as the rest of the family based in England. The Queen deserves this time especially after everything that has happened and I hope she doesn't return until Oct. unless she has to for official business.
I think Balmoral is beautiful, I like it over Sandringham. The Queen stays away from Balmoral itself for a short time until the tourist "season" ends.
