The children look cute, as always, itís a shame their privacy was invaded to make derisive commentary at another family member.
You are now doing to the Cambridges the very thing you are accusing others of doing to the Sussexs.

If you have by any chance watched the documentary where William discussed his mother's relationship with the press, you know he would not set up a shot like this or condone it.

I don’t remember the Cambridge family being snapped boarding a flight to Balmoral and snapped that up close and the pics splashed all over the front pages. We usually know the family are at Balmoral when the family are on their way to Crathie Kirk and those very rare snaps of the family heading to lunch.

I think their privacy was invaded.

I am well aware of Princess Diana’s relationship with the press & have seen where William has discussed it. I have followed BFR, long before William & Diana became part of the family, & I’m well aware of media manipulation.

I assume you aren't suggesting that it would be safer for the Cambridges (2 adults & 3 children) to travel to Aberdeen by train are you?


No I am not advocting that the Cambrigdes take the train to Aberdeen as they have the moral highground to make that choice without the hypocrisy of preaching one thing to repeatedly doing another. The single scheduled train ride to Kings Lynn from London is the best option for the monarch. The Queen chose to travel by train to France this year for the D Day commemorations!

There have been a lot of photos over the years of family members arriving and departing from Aberdeen airport. Its the closest for travel to Balmoral. One of the more amusing ones are seeing Sarah leaving and Philip arriving right afterwards. Its not an invasion of privacy at all. Its a public airport.

I just hope they really have a great time at Balmoral. Wonder if any of the Cambridge kids will actually catch fish in the River Dee this year? Balmoral is a wonderful place to enjoy the great outdoors.

In that case you surely would agree he would not use his children like this, I will continue to disagree with you that the photograph was staged.

If you are saying that somebody by chance saw them took the photograph, sold it to the press, who then viewed this as an ideal opportunity to play one brother against the other I would say you probably have a point.

Could it be the press knew there was a good chance the family would be heading north, that they were known to use the airport, and wanted a shot of the ' ordinary' Cambridges using normal travel. Possibly there are only so many flights a day they could have taken, so could have timed it well.

I've seen a couple pics on Twitter in the past week showing them headed to Balmoral on the 'budget' plane. At least one of them goes back years.

Do the Cambridge's still have use of a cottage on the Balmoral estate? Or now they are a family do they stay at the Castle or with Charles?

I do not think they use Tam-na-Ghar, the cottage originally give to William. They seem to stay on another larger cottage somewhere on the estate, and then spend time at both Balmoral and Birkhall.

The news is reporting they stay at Tam na ghar but I find it highly doubtful. Its a three bedroom cottage. Between having three kids now, a nanny, and the grandparents with them, that doesnt seem practical.

They are either at the main home or some unknown property, or Birkhall.

The Cambridges join The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh for lunch at Balmoral. Princess Anne and her family are also there.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were joined by Prince William and his wife Kate for lunch today as the Royal Family get away for their summer break in Balmoral.

Plenty of times. See for example,

For the record, I am not against private jets. I think they are great!!
Let's be honest, who amongst us would rather wait in line, go through security checkpoints, have to deal with flight delays, other passengers staring and taking photos, risks security, and all the while doing this with young children. Um no...I will take private jet please and thank you.

That’s the only time they’ve used a private jet to travel to Scotland. It was a loan from the Duke of Westminster.

I believe that is the only time they used a private jet to get to Balmoral, certainly the last time they were pictured doing so. It was 2 months after George was born and the het was lent to them by the Duke of Westminster, who's wive is William's godmother.

So the press are kind of attempting to spin this, and failing, that it falls at the feet of the Cambridgeís which is not the case at all.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...liam-Kate.html

The flight scheduled to depart from Norwich was a Loganair flight, branded as such. But Flybe were so desperate to get the royals on a plane in their livery, they flew an empty plane to Norwich so it could be used for the Cambridgeís flight.

Itís a real shame that Flybe chose to use this as PR stunt for their own means.

Unless everybody who gets on an aeroplane is supposed to ask ‘is this the regular plane or did you switch it with another’.

None of the other passengers on the plane would have known either let alone the Cambridges.
