I wonder if William and Harry have any relationship with their "2nd tier" relatives or if they associate anytime other than official family get togethers such as Christmas, weddings, the royal jubilee etc. We know that David Linley must have a relationship with William since he let them stay in his property in Franch. But I wonder about the others like Helen Taylor, Frederick and Sophia, the Olgivies. I suppose like any family, they see them from time to time but probably run in completely different circles due to age differences as much as anything.

They did have a relationship with Frederick and Gabriella as children simply because they all grew up in KP.

I know they all grew up at KP but it is a pretty big place with walled gardens and their mothers were rumoured to be not even remotely close so it is possible they had very little contact as children at KP. Also Harry & Wills left KP in their early teens so contact would have been even more limited from then on.

Peter Philips made the following comment which I think gives an insight into relationships in the BRF, particularly whether they socialise.

He said he was looking forward to having his niece or nephew round to play with his own children, Savannah, three, and one-year-old Isla, in future as "we had cousins growing up so it's always nice to have family, to have cousins to play with. It's fantastic".

(Source Telegraph 08072013).

I gleaned from this that this was playing mainly with the Wales as the ages are closest, but that doesn't mean that the Yorks and wider family would be excluded.

This is why I kind of feel bad for the Wessexes. They don't have Mountbatten-Windsor cousins of the same age, so they don't get the same experience growing up that their elder cousins had.

At the same time, it's awesome that the children of Anne and the children of Charles (or at least William) are all having close-in-age children, for that very reason. Hopefully the Yorks and Harry are able to follow suite.

I do feel for the Wessex children too, but they do have Savannah and Isla and other future second cousins who are of their age who they can socialise with as they get older, if they really want to. They have missed out on some of the experiences their older cousins had, such as skiing together and attending church with their cousins etc. I am sure, however, that their older cousins are good with them. We saw images of little 2 year old James holding Peter Phillips' finger as they departed the Hebridean Princess in 2010. The age gaps are very big, but I am sure they are all very good with their little cousins. I can also imagine that when Louise and James were born they all loved passing the baby around at Sandringham for the Christmas gatherings!

They are also of an age with the Linley children so they do have family - just not first cousins and they will also have fun with Peter and the new generation of children - being the link between the generations.

Lady Helen Taylor's daughters Eloise and Estella are also a similar age to Louise. I remember seeing photos from 2011's Trooping the Colour and Louise was talking to Estella, so she has other members of the family who are close in age to her. Albert and Xan Windsor are also a similar age to Viscount Severn, but I don't know how close they are.

So just from speculation, it's more likely true that HM The Queen's favorite grandchild is HRH Princess Beatrice? Ive read this many of times before--obviously there has been much speculation about her favorite, but Ive read Princess Beatrice more than any other.

I don't know about her favorite grandchild but Beatrice & Eugenie do spend a great deal of time with their grandmother and grandfather.

I think that HM and Louise are close with sharing a love of horses. I don't really think that the Queen would have a definite favorite grandchild but rather have her own unique bond with each of them.

I haven't heard about Beatrice being her favourite before. I've heard rumours about Peter, Louise and James being her favourites which generally seems logical as Peter is the oldest - HM's first grandchild - and Louise and James are the youngest - the ones she has had more opportunities to spend time with. But if she indeed has a favourite grandchild, how should we know? Presumably she wouldn't go around telling people all about it.

Never read that, can you provide some articles?

I'd love to see that picture. Haven't seen it before.

I have read that as well, even though I have also heard that Anne's children are her favorites because they came first.

BTW, it's Beatrice and Eugenie who call their Royal grandmother "Super Gran" which must delight her!

Picture of James hanging on to Sophie and Peter Philips. Truly. Louise is with Edward.

Actually I found this article very amusing and a good read. The good vicar shares with us some of the interesting events of his stay at Balmoral and paints a good picture of just how relaxed and "at home" the Queen is while she's there. I really didn't see anything in the article that could really be deemed "scandalous" or "disturbing" but occasions where a family was acting just like a family.

His recollections are no different nor a breach of confidence than the book that Margaret Rhodes has written about her life and times with the Queen and the Queen Mother. It gives a more private view into personalities rather than what we usually see as "game faces" when the royal family is in public.

Once again the Daily Fail's headlines are misleading.
