Prince George and Princess Charlotte are currently taking part in one of the royal family’s long standing traditions. Following in the footsteps of their father, grandfather, and great grandfather and mother, George and Charlotte are enjoying one of their first summers at the royal residence Balmoral.

George and Charlotte and the queen

According to HELLO! the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have taken George and Charlotte up to Balmoral in Scotland for a short break. The family of four are paying a visit to the Queen and Prince Philip. The Queen has spent most of the summer in the secluded highlands retreat, as is tradition.

Over the next week, as well as enjoying some quality time with their ‘Gan Gan’, George and Charlotte will get to explore the sprawling estate. Plenty of space for boisterous Prince George to stretch his legs! Perhaps taking their beloved dog Lupo for a walk in the highlands too.

Talking on ITV’s Our Queen At Ninety, Princess Eugenie gave an idea of what George and Charlotte’s first stay at Balmoral would be like.

“Walks, picnics, dogs – a lot of dogs, there’s always dogs – and people coming in and out all the time. It’s a lovely base for Granny and Grandpa, for us to come and see them up there; where you just have room to breathe and run.”

The 26-year-old royal also confessed, “I think Granny is the most happy there. I think she really, really loves the Highlands.”

The Queen looks relaxed as she enjoys time with her young family in the grounds of the Balmoral estate in Scotland.

After a string of public engagements, Kate and Prince William are no doubt enjoying time away from the public-eye. At the end of the month, the family will embark on their first public tour together to Canada. The royal tour will mark Princess Charlotte’s first official trip abroad.
