King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla are said to be enjoying a private getaway as they celebrate their wedding anniversary amid his cancer treatment.

According to People, the couple's plane was spotted at Scotland's Aberdeen Airport on Wednesday, April 10—the day following their 19th anniversary—before the two were driven about an hour to their Balmoral estate. It's a tradition for the royal couple to spend time at the Birkhall grand house near Balmoral Castle, where they typically enjoy some peace and quiet as they celebrate each other, enjoying "private time" together, as one royal source put it.

The king inherited the Birkhall property from his late grandmother after her death in 2002, and he and his wife spent their honeymoon there in 2005. They retreated to the property during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, working from the sanctuary of the home as he recovered from the virus.

Now, he's enjoying a brief getaway amid his ongoing treatment for an unspecified cancer, which has led to a decrease in his royal duties while he battles the disease. Camilla is enjoying a respite, too, as she's been filling in for him for several public outings, even making royal history during the first Royal Maundy Service where a consort filled in for the monarch.

Charles also made history when he had his brother, Prince Edward, and his wife, Duchess Sophiestand in his place during an event honoring the 120th anniversary of a diplomatic agreement between the U.K. and France called the "entente cordiale," which paved the way for the countries' cooperation from World War I to today.
