Balmoral Castle was a holiday home for them, and the family spent summer breaks there.

Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth often visited Crathie Kirk when they were at Balmoral and it was a regular place of worship for them.

A military man, he was also invited to attend a number of events in the north and north-east, including the closure of RAF Kinloss and the refurbishment of Fort George, near Inverness.
