THE Queen held a socially distanced family reunion with William, Kate and their three children on Saturday, the Sun on Sunday can reveal.
It was the first time she had seen all of them together since before lockdown began in March.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Balmoral where the Queen and Prince Philip remain in a Covid- secure “bubble”.
Sources said that Her Majesty spent some time with great-grandchildren George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, outside on the 50,000-acre estate.
Kate and Wills were described as feeling “over the moon” to make the reunion and wanted to show their support after a “difficult year”.
The Queen, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, are still subject to strict measures dubbed by staff as “HMS Bubble”.
A royal source said: “Like every family, they’ve been desperate to get back together and over the moon it was possible this weekend.
“They’ve all been up there for a few days and although there are very strict procedures with social distancing, they’ve been able to find ways of seeing each other outside.
“It’s obviously been a difficult year for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh seeing the country dealing with the pandemic, so they were all keen to go there to show their support.”
Prince Edward, Sophie Wessex and Princess Anne were also at the private Scottish estate this weekend.
Princess Eugenie and hubby Jack Brooksbank are believed to have visited earlier this month.
But it is not known if Prince Andrew has so far made the trip
