And eagle-eyed fans were quick to hone in on the details of the Drawing Room – a homelier space decorated with green sofas and floral furnishings.
To the left of Her Majesty in the images is a circular wooden coffee table upon which is placed a large lamp. Also discreetly placed on the table is a small white box – which was soon identified by royal watchers.
Royal fans spotted a wireless doorbell in the Drawing Room
The item appears to be a portable, wireless doorbell that Her Majesty can take with her around her home to call for assistance.
It’s no surprise the Queen has something on hand should she need a member of staff; Balmoral Castle is a large property featuring some 52 bedrooms and a significant number of reception rooms, including the Drawing Room.

Also visible in the images, to the right of the roaring fireplace, is a striking portrait of another awe-inspiring monarch, Queen Victoria, and her faithful retainer, John Brown.
This week marked the first time the Queen has been seen in a number of weeks as she continues to enjoy her summer break.
