I think the Cambridge kids probably see more of their grandparents than Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret did; George, Charlotte and Louis are sure surrounded by love....That said, I’ve made that comparison before; they are such a wonderful little unit.

I think George V and Queen Mary saw quite a lot of Elizabeth and Margaret when they were small. I understand Queen Mary was very involved in the education imparted, as she wanted to ensure Elizabeth was suitably educated for her future role.

I love "Bugingham Palace!" Reminds me of my grandad's cousin, who has "Cluckingham Palace" for her chickens.

I believe you're right - earning George V the nickname "grandpa England" from a young HM.

Of couse they saw quite a bit of them, esp as Eliz looked likely to be queen eventaully as it didn't look like David woudl have a family.... and As far as I recall, George and Mary took charge of the children when their parents were away on long tours.....

A nice new video exchange:

"One year on from #RoyalVisitPakistan (..)
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge caught up with teachers at Islamabad Model College for Girls to hear how the school’s activities have been impacted, before joining pupils in a game of Pictionary"

Thank you for sharing. An excellent idea to use Pictionary as a learning to for their English language class.

Here is a bit of tongue in cheek. KFC UK and Ireland has tweeted two possible "puns". I used the word "pun" very loosely here, because it's not the same word with double meaning.

There is also a picture of Prince William looking through the KFC's shop window.

William whispered quietly to himself;
“Oh, I just can’t wait to be wing”

What a brilliant idea this train trip is. I'm sure they'll be greeted at every stop with smiles and appreciation. It's a great way to highlight the people that have made surviving this pandemic easier for everyone all around.

This is what royal engagements and duty is all about. I'm going to enjoy following their trail as they make their way through England, Scotland and Wales.

That’s wonderful ! I just saw a documentary on PBS about the Royal Train - perfect timing! Seriously, this is the kind of thing the BRF is so good at ..

I admit, I can’t help wondering if this could have gone ahead had Charles been scheduled to do this - I’m thinking of potential bad reaction due to the Crown.

In any case, William and Kate are wonderful with the public - this is just fantastic.

Fab idea! A great pre-Christmas morale boost and a good use of the royal train (I suspect it is a bit of a necessity as it creates a Covid secure base for them).

In the doc I watched (actually it was a documentary in two parts - about Royal travel; the second part was about the Royal plane/s), they mentioned that only the most senior Royals (HM, Duke, Charles, Camilla) get to ride the Royal Train. Meghan did when HM invited her to one of her engagements, but Kate has never been on it, so, this will be a first for her!

Since many people are discouraged from travelling perhaps a "victory" train tour after COVID goes away would be more appropriate. It would encourage crowds waiting for the train now. The vaccines are just starting to be given out, COVID is not gone yet and is spiking now.

Thank you for sharing the news. Looking forward to seeing the photos of the trip through the UK to thank the frontline workers.

A tour through the country, visiting a whole bunch of strangers, when the country is meant to be on near lockdown

I do wonder how royals think these are good ideas

Yes I know lockdown has been lifted for Christmas. But they are still telling people to stay close to home, and limit interaction and so on. The royals doing this is only going to encourage people to come out to stations to see them. They are supposed to lead by example, not see what we do, and do the opposite.

The photo op with medical staff in April, around the time William came down with covid come to anyone's mind

There is better ways of showing support then taking a holiday tour.

No doubt their will be strict protocols in place. Along with Mandatory masks and plenty of hand sanitizer people will Or should be medically screened in some way Or Have their temp taken on sight. I am sure crowds will be limited as well.
