The royal family are planned a special meal to celebrate The Queen's big landmark date...

Key members of the royal family, including Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, will gather together today (September 9th) in Scotland for a very special celebration.


The 9th of September marks the date when Queen Elizabeth II has now become the longest serving British monarch ever. The Queen has beaten her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria – who sat on the throne for nearly 64 years.


To celebrate this very special occasion, The Queen is hosting an intimate gathering of royal family members at her Scottish home in Balmoral. It is thought that the select members of the royal family will enjoy a family dinner together at the castle in Aberdeenshire.


Sources told the Daily Mail that both Kate and William will be in attendance at the dinner, but William’s father and heir to throne Prince Charles, will not. The Queen’s eldest son is thought to have to attend a previous commitment in Ayrshire, 150 miles away.

It is unclear whether Kate and William will bring along the Queen’s great-grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, to join the celebration, or whether they will stay at the family home in Norfolk. We’re sure they are really proud of their great-grandma!
