World War I Commemoration and Turriff Show Visit

The Queen attended a service of commemoration to mark the centenary of the First World War at Crathie Kirk in Aberdeenshire. Also today, she attended the Turriff Show, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the agricultural event.

Her official arrival at Balmoral Castle is yet to come, but HM has already started her annual Scotland holiday. She still joined her family members in marking today's significant anniversary at multiple locations, visiting the church she normally attends while at Balmoral (and a rare glimpse it is for us, to see inside while she's there).
For the day's other public event (above), she had an outfit switch but stuck with one of Queen Victoria's Bows, which was showing off its largest stones quite nicely.
