Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I can't find a trace of an invitation in April, but in late July-August for early September. Here are a couple of press snips on that:

As per tradition, the monarch extends an invitation to the Prime Minister and their spouse each year to spend a few days each summer at Balmoral.

Prime Ministers and their partners traditionally visit the Queen at her Highlands estate in late summer, typically in the first week of September before the Commons returns after recess. It is believed Mr Johnson and his partner Carrie Symonds will be no different.

The big question for the press being Ms Symonds is not married to Mr Johnson, who is married to another woman.

But it seems all PMs are invited to Balmoral towards the end of the summer hols. Even Corbyn would be (really? Why not, at least he's married to Mrs Corbyn, even if she's his third wife...).

Things are going to slide, slide in all directions
Won't be nothing
Nothing you can measure anymore
