The church service is the only highlight when the royal fans are assured to have a glimpse of the Duchess in August when the family is on summer vacation. Although this year we saw Duke and Duchess competing against each other at the First Annual King’s Cup Sailing Regatta on August 09 after their summer vacation in Mustique.

 

On Thursday, William and Catherine were seen boarding a morning flight from Norwich International Airport to Aberdeen Airport to Scotland with kids and their Nany Maria. Visiting Balmoral is the last leg of Cambridge family’s summer break before they head back to London. A small video from DailyMail of the family boarding the flight.

 

It is being reported that family is staying at Prince Charles’ Scottish residence Tam-Na-Ghar on Castle grounds. On Friday, William and Catherine joined Queen, Prince Philip, Princess Anne and her husband along with Peter Phillips and his family for the lunch.

Scotland has played a great role in William and Catherine’s relationship. They met at the St. Andrews University in 2001 that is in Scotland. During the student years, William and Catherine spend times away from public and media in the Balmoral and Charles’s residence.
