That's a magical picture. I'm waiting for Beauty and the Beast to appear on the driveway.

Shame it's February because that photo would've made for a great Christmas card photo! Our garden here just outside of London has now been covered in a light dusting of snow after a rainy day.

What of when William is King perhaps he will want to host his brother and favorite cousins and their families at Balmoral, after all William and Catherine attended college in Scotland. Is Charles' goal to leave no personal real property to his heir and descendants?

Didn't George VI have to buy back Edward VIII's interest in Balmoral at great personal expense to avoid having the estate leave the main line of the Royals? What has changed since then that makes jettisoning the estate a good idea now?


I suppose since Balmoral is the Queen's personal estate she could leave Charles a life estate in Balmoral w/ the remainder to William when he becomes King thereby depriving Charles of the ability to give the estate away.
I doubt anything will happen with the Castle without a group descision between Charles, William and Harry about the matter... Maybe they share the view that Balmoral Castle should be given to the nation and make Birkhall the main residence there instead... Maybe they rather want a summer home in a warmer climate than in the scottish highlands ? We don't know...

It wouldn't be a unique move. Edward VII bought Sandringham as his summer home as Prince of Wales and continued to use it as King, while he gave away Osbourne House upon the death of his mother Queen Victoria.

I can see Charles and Camilla wanting to spend more time at the Castle of Mey during their annual summer holiday when they become the Royal Couple.

It is splendid to see Spring flowers beginning to emerge in the yard of Balmoral.
