If they are already going to be in Scotland...why wouldn't they pop over to the games?

That they will be in Scotland next week has all but been officially confirmed. They go to Balmoral every year. Whether there will be a big dinner on the 9th no one knows for sure.

Ok, confirmed how? I'm not saying they won't be there.

The big dinner rumor seems so out of character for the Queen. Especially when you consider how she became Queen with her beloved father dying.

Rebecca English reported on Twitter that they aren't in Scotland yet. When they went in 2013 with baby George they used the private plane of the Duke of Westminster (Will is godson of the Duchess). I would think we will see something similar this time with Charlotte.

Nothing official from the palace but different 'royal reporters' from competing newspapers are saying they will be in Scotland. I don't normally put stock in newspapers but given they go almost every year I have no reason to believe they won't be there.

As for the games its a social event much like Ascot. Its a not a required outing like Trooping the Colour.

I agree on the dinner. If alot of family is there, they'll probably have dinner though... as they would other times as well!

Ok, if they're not even there I don't see what the fuss is!

I'm not sure William is a fan of the Highland games. He only attended The Braemar Games with The Queen in 2005, and he hasn't been back since. I think what he's not interested in, he don't attend.

Also... they're not in scotland and now it's reported that they are not excpected until after the weekend... We know he worked yesterday (or was it the day before that?) so he's still on his schedule as well, can't just go to Scotland alll willy-nilly if you're working!

Yes, we know. I just don't think he's interested in events like that, even if he was in Scotland and free to go. He probably hear enough of bagpipes already.

Several bickering, argumentative posts (and off-topic posts) have been removed or edited. If members wish to conduct an argumentative discussion, which serves only to disrupt the thread and is wholly unfair on other posters, please do so via Private Message or not at all.

I'm puzzled by your comment. How does a family dinner in Scotland have to do with how she became Queen?

It seems that some of the media has speculated that there was to be a grand celebratory dinner at Balmoral to mark the Queen's becoming the longest reigning British monarch. It seems to some of us that this kind of thing is out of character for HM as she's reportedly didn't want a big fuss made over it. I'm sure there will be family dinners and barbeques and outdoor activities as there always have been but no big grand celebration.

One thing that must stand out in HM's memory is just how she became Queen in the first place. It was because of the death of her beloved father in February 1952. Its been stated several places I can recall that HM stays at Sandringham at least until after the anniversary of her father's death. They had many good years and good times at Sandringham and those are the memories that HM holds dear.

General News for the Cambridge Family Part 2: January 2015

I don't even think Victoria even had a grand dinner to celebrate when she became longest reigning monarch although The Tsar Nicholas was visiting but I don't it was a state visit.

But Queen Elizabeth Succeeded her Father while Victoria succeeded her Uncle

I don't think the meant to make it seem like there would be a grand celebration dinner for this important event. The way I took it, The Queen is just inviting the Cambridge's to Balmoral, like she do all the time. Of course the folks are going to have dinner.

Very modern royals. They do themselves proud this couple. The monarchy is in safe hands.

Quote:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will soon begin juggling parental duties, royal events and William's air ambulance job for the first time in earnest.

William and Kate have enjoyed the summer with their two young children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and the coming months will be the first substantial period the couple will have combined family life with public and work commitments.

The Duke will be flying helicopter missions, undertaking official engagements in support of the Queen and his charitable interests, and looking after his two young children with Kate.

William has now settled into his job as a helicopter pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance and has flown a variety of missions in a number of different conditions.
