Queen ELizabeth II and Prince Philip were in good form as they attended the 2011 Bramer Highland Games in Braemar, Scotland.  The Braemar Highland Games, which dates back to 200 years, is the best known of all Highland Games and is regularly graced by the attendance of senior members of the royal family, most especially the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and this year was no exception.  In the royal pavilion this year with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were their son-in-law, Sir Timothy Laurence, and the Prime Minister and Mrs. David Cameron.
