Most likely won't happen until the child is a bit older and able to have an understanding of the visit.

Exactly! Maybe when he is a lot older and the conversation about death comes up. But taking a newborn on a boat to go to visit your mother's grave on an island? I don't think so.

Plus no way would the press have not picked up on a visit to Althorp. They're camped out in Bucklebury hoping for images, so if William and Kate had left, there'd most likely be pictures

It does seem a bit bizarre. Probably a fabricated story. You're right, maybe when he is older.

I guess it all depends on how often William himself goes to Althorp. It's not something we really hear about.

It is always very sad when the tabloids resort to tragedy stories to sell.

I agree, I think the story is silly.

As far as taking baby George there, I think William has enough brains to realize that a visit such as this would be more beneficial if/when the child is actually old enough to understand and appreciate the visit.


When Ethel Kennedy gave birth to her youngest six months after her husband died she brought her child to his grave to quote meet her father. I doubt a boat is dangerous and people handle loss differently. I wouldn't judge anyone for doing that.

How is it different? I think people here are basically speaking as outsiders that did not lose their mother at a young age. Again, there isn't anything wrong with it. And the passage of time doesn't suddenly mean it means less. So what she's been dead for more than ten years. Is there a rule or cap on the limit of years to do this lol

Comparing what Ethel Kennedy did to the stories about William isn't the same scenario. A closer scenario, would be if the grown up Rory Kennedy took her newborn to her father's grave.

There has been a passage of years allowing for William to come to terms with his mother's death. It didn't happen weeks or months ago like what happen with Ethel Kennedy. It was almost 17 years ago. Bonding with his son and taking care of his living wife has to be his first priority.

This particular story has since been refuted as the man with the current lease has not moved out yet and is busy relocating his business - obviously a priority. Furthermore, there are denials of the Queen paying him off.

So I think its Bucklebury and Notts. Cottage until 1A is completed, plus moving out of the house on Anglesey.

Anmer Hall will be a country retreat, both for summer (great expanses of beach nearby) and Christmas, where the Cambridges can entertain the Middletons. Good shooting place.

We don't know how often prince William visits his mothers grave. Maybe he visits it often, maybe on her death anniversary whenever possible.

If William takes his son, I think it's nothing strange.

Does anyone know when George will be christened? Is there going to be any pictures released of the boy like Victoria did with Estelle? Would be nice to see the little Prince soon.

Many believe the christening will take place in the fall. When The Queen gets back from Balmoral. I do believe there will be pictures released and maybe even some video.
