This June, a weekend of festivities will be dedicated to the platinum jubilee of the Queen of England. It was 70 years ago on February 6 that Elizabeth II acceded to the British throne. After that, the Monarch plans to spend more time at Craigowan Lodge in Aberdeenshire, near Balmoral Castle. New facilities have been installed there to offer more comfort and security to the 95-year-old monarch.
At 95 years old, Elizabeth II has just celebrated her 70th anniversary of reign on February 6 and important festivities are planned for the occasion next June. After that, the Monarch wishes to spend more time at Craigowan Lodge in Aberdeenshire, a magnificent stone cottage with 7 bedrooms. It is one of the favorite places of the Queen of England, located only 1.6 km from Balmoral Castle.
The premises have recently been equipped with new facilities offering more comfort and safety to Elizabeth II. A £20,000 wheelchair elevator has been installed, according to a source reported by the Daily Mail. New surveillance cameras will also soon be present. Craigowan is one of the Queen's favorite houses. She loves being there. The idea of making it easier for her to spend more time there in the future is a great idea. It's a big house. The security makes it very safe, Ingrid Seward, editor of Majesty Magazine, told Daily Mail.
But even though the queen is fond of the residence, that doesn't mean he would spend all his time there. She loves Scotland, but I don't think she would use it (the cottage) all year round. It's a lovely place for the summer but it's quite cold and dark during the winter. But it's a very favorite place for her, said royal biographer Penny Junor.
