For the first time since January, Queen Elizabeth and other members of the royal family will all be enjoying the week off.
This week will be a total fun and relax time for the British royal family.
There are no official engagements in the diary. Thia means that the 92-year-old reigning monarch and her whole family will be able to kickstart their summer holidays.
The royal members usually carry out a handful of engagements every week. It’s important to them even if it’s a visit to a city, supporting a charity initiative or welcoming members of the public into the palace.
But this very week signals the start of some downtime for the hard-working family.
Queen Elizabeth travelled up to Scotland earlier this month where she traditionally spends her extended summer break until the autumn.

Recently only, she has been joined by Prince Philip, while other members of the family are expected to visit them at Balmoral throughout August and September.
The Queen made a surprise appearance on Sunday, attending a service at Crathie church in Aberdeenshire. It’s a few minutes drive away from her official residence.
The royal family has completed it’s last official engagement.
Last week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attended the Sentebale Polo Cup at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club. It was the last official engagement for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
And now, they will be off public duties for the next month. But royal watchers can expect to see Harry and Meghan and on her birthday as they are due to attend a friend’s wedding.
Prince Harry and Charlie have been close friends ever since they attended Ludgrove Prep School in Berkshire as children. But, until now, it hadn’t been confirmed that the nuptials actually fall on Meghan’s birthday.
