Royal fans are set to flock to the castle to pay tribute to the late monarch, with many planning trips there as tickets go on sale.
Her Majesty spent her final days before she passed away there, aged 96 on September 8.
The Royals’ Scottish residence held a special place in The Queen’s heart, as she spent ample quality time with her family and holidays every summer there.
The secluded castle and estate is set in the stunning Cairngorms National Park and is located just off river Dee in the village of Crathie, Aberdeenshire.
It’s grounds are now reopening to the public from April 1 – with tickets offering access to the ballroom, exhibitions and grounds.
Balmoral was purchased by Queen Victoria’s husband Albert in 1852, and it soon became the royals’ Scottish home.
After Albert’s death in 1861, it increasingly became Victoria’s safe haven during her long years of grieving.
The Highland home has offered the royal family a quiet sanctuary, where they can relax away from their duties, ever since.
The Queen completed her final official engagement as monarch there when she held an audience with Prime Minister Liz Truss there shortly before her death in September

In the 2016 documentary, Our Queen at Ninety, the Queen’s granddaughter Princess Eugenie said of Balmoral: ‘It’s the most beautiful place on earth. I think Granny is most happy there. I think she really, really loves the Highlands.’
The late monarch and her husband, Prince Philip, spent much time there with their children, and her grandson Prince William spoke after her death about the happy memories he and his three children also shared holidaying there with their granny.
The Queen typically resided at Balmoral for ten or so weeks between August and October, and completed her final official engagement as monarch there when she held an audience with Prime Minister Liz Truss there shortly before her death in September.
