The Cambridges Visit The Queen At The Scottish Royal Estate For Summer Holidays
Kate, William and their children spent a week with Queen Elizabeth at Balmoral on the first family get-together since Prince Philip’s passing
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their children on a week-long trip at the Scottish royal estate, where the Queen has spent the past month on her first summer holiday since Prince Philip’s death this April at age 99.
The Balmoral gathering marks the royals’ first family get-together since the Duke of Edinburgh passing.
A source said “They always enjoy going up to Balmoral, they love the outdoors and walking in the hills and spending quality time with family. It’s where William spent a lot of his childhood and it’s important to him that his children experience what he did as a young boy.”
Spending summers with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren has become a tradition for the Queen
A family friend also revealed that when planning for summer holidays, the queen usually reserves the last weekend in August for the younger members of the royal family including her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, in what has become a “tradition in recent years.”
Besides spending some quality time with the Queen, the Cambridges are reported to have spent the week fishing, cycling, horseback riding, and taking long walks in the Scottish Highlands with their children, George, 8, Charlotte, 6, and Louis, 3.
With the summer ending, the queen will soon leave Balmoral to resume her royal duties. William and Kate will also resume work in early September when their children go back to school.
