Queen Elizabeth II with Princess Anne, Prince Charles and their nurse, Helen Lightbody, at a stall during a Sale of Work event in Abergeldie Castle, near Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire. They are raising funds for the building of a new vestry at Craithie Church.
Abergeldie Castle, Grampian, Scotland is an historic probably mid-16th century tower house, beside the River Dee. The most likely builder was Sir Alexander Gordon of Midmar, later Earl of Huntly. The fact that the walls are 4 feet thick speaks to the need for defense by the builders. The castle was used briefly as a garrison for royal troops during the first Jacobite uprising in 1715, and later it was leased to succesive generations of the royal family, beginning with Prince Albert in 1848.
