The Queen Mother was born in 1900 as Elizabeth Bowes Lyon. She spent a great deal of her childhood at Glamis Castle. On 26 April 1923 she married Prince Albert, Duke of York, second son of George V, at Westminster Abbey. Their second daughter, Princess Margaret, was born at Glamis Castle in 1930. Glamis Castle was remodelled in the 17th century to look like it does today.

Balmoral Castle

Balmoral was a favourite haunt of Queen Elizabeth II . The Queen stayed there every summer. Balmoral is private property and, unlike the monarch’s official residences , is not the property of the Crown .

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert first visited Scotland in 1842 . In February 1848 an arrangement was made that Prince Albert would buy Balmoral .

The Queen died on 8 September 2022 at the age of 96. She was the first monarch to die at Balmoral, and this was the first time a monarch had died in Scotland since James V died in 1542 at Falkland Palace .
