A royal expert reveals the Queen’s heartfelt surprise for the Cambridge children in Balmoral.
When Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William with their offspring pay a visit to Queen Elizabeth II at Balmoral Castle, one royal expert claims she gives a special treat to her great-grandchildren.
When Kate and Prince William visit the Queen with their three children, Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, royal author Katie Nicholl claims the Queen places gifts on the beds of her loved ones. “When the Cambridges stay at the Queen’s Scottish castle, the monarch has been known to lay modest specially picked gifts on her grandchildren’s beds,” she wrote in Vanity Fair.
According to Ms Nicholl, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent the previous week at Balmoral Castle with the Queen and their children.
According to the expert, the Queen will have been looking forward to their visit, citing a family member who stated the last weekend in August has become a period allocated for the Queen’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
“The Bank Holiday weekend has become a tradition in recent years as the final family get-together before Christmas, and everyone is invited,” the insider said.
“In the past, it’s turned into a large sleepover for the Queen’s grandkids and great-grandchildren.
“It gives Her Majesty a great deal of pleasure.”
Kate, William, and their three children are said to spend most of their time in Balmoral immersed in nature, going on long walks, fishing, and horseback riding and cycling.
Prince William wants his children to enjoy comparable experiences to those he had during his summer holidays at Balmoral, according to a source who claims the Cambridges paid a visit to the Queen in Scotland.
“They always like traveling up to Balmoral; they love the outdoors and strolling in the hills, as well as spending quality time with family,” the source said.
“It’s where William spent a lot of his boyhood, and it’s essential to him that his children see what he saw when he was a kid.”
During an address to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland’s opening ceremony in May, the Duke of Cambridge spoke fondly of Scotland and his time at Balmoral.
“My childhood was full of vacations spent in the fresh air and swimming in lochs, family barbeques with my grandfather in command, and yes – the occasional midge,” he remarked.
