‘Here we are again,’ says the narrator. After the pony goes off on the incorrect hoof at Balmoral, the Queen makes a witty remark.
QUEEN ELIZABETH arrived at Balmoral Castle to a rousing welcome, which included a naughty four-legged member of The Royal Regiment of Scotland.
The 95-year-old monarch is known for her passion for horses, but Shetland Pony Cruachan IV has stepped on the wrong foot with Her Majesty.
“Here we are again,” the Queen exclaimed as she saw the pony.
The Monarch has relocated to Scotland’s Balmoral Castle, where she will spend the rest of the summer.
She was received with a customary ceremony that had been postponed owing to Covid limitations last year.
The Balaklava Company, 5 Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, and their cheeky equine mascot Cruachan IV greeted the monarch at the castle gates.
Cruachan IV has been a part of the customary event in past years, and he has made a mark with his naughty antics.
The Shetland Pony defecated in front of Her Majesty in 2018, causing her to turn away from the terrible odor.
The pony had tried to devour the Queen’s flower arrangement a year before.
The pony, on the other hand, appeared to be in excellent spirits this year and made it through the ritual without raising a commotion.
Since Prince Philip’s untimely death in April, this is the Queen’s first summer vacation without him.
She arrived to Balmoral last month, but didn’t officially move in until Monday because she was most likely residing somewhere on the estate.
The monarch arrived at her Balmoral estate last month and, with an Instagram post to Balmoral Castle’s account last week, officially locked the doors to the public.
The post was captioned, “Balmoral castle and grounds is now closed to the public until April 2022.”
“Throughout the year of 2021, we would want to thank each and every visitor to the estate, and we hope you all had a wonderful time.
“Despite the constraints and restrictions imposed by the epidemic, it has been a pleasure to greet so many smiling faces at Balmoral.”
