Braemar Royal Highland Gathering

September 1, 2012 by  

Braemar Royal Highland Gathering, The Queen and Prince Philip were among the spectators at last year’s event
Members of the Royal Family are expected to turn out for Saturday’s Braemar Gathering.

Organisers hope the Duke of Edinburgh will be able to attend.

The Duke has been recuperating at Balmoral after spending several days in hospital in Aberdeen with a bladder infection

The Gathering, held at The Princess Royal and Duke of Fife Memorial Park, is seen as the biggest event in the Highland Games calendar.

It has a long history, stretching back in its modern form nearly 200 years.

Competitors take part in events including hammer throwing, caber tossing and tug-o-war.

Prince Philip, 91, spent five nights at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as a “precaution” after a recurrence of a bladder infection he had in June.

He left hospital on 20 August, and made a church appearance last Sunday.
