A huge disappointment. Who says family vacations says traditions for Prince William. As every year, members of the royal family visit Balmoral Castle, a residence in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. This is very dear to the heart of the Queen of England and she used to go there with her husband, Prince Philip. Among the many traditions, there is that of hunting. However, according to information published by the Express this Thursday, August 5, Prince William and his eldest son, Prince George may not be able to participate. Indeed, a royal expert told the tabloid that a “colder than normal spring has killed many birds, which means the ceremony could be called off.” For this year, the start date was scheduled for August 12, but many areas were forced to postpone the launch of the hunting season or find alternatives for those who wish to come. According to a spokesperson, the royal family has made the decision to let “the experts decide whether the hunt will finally take place.” No doubt Prince William and George will be disappointed if it is canceled.

An appointment that they do not miss. Despite the Coronavirus epidemic and the health crisis that rocked the United Kingdom in 2020, it was out of the question for Elizabeth II and Prince Philip to depart from their habit.

Holidays in Balmoral are not easy for Prince George. Indeed, after the hunt, the little boy also learned fly fishing. “William and Kate are very keen on George being able to start fishing on the banks of the River Dee, adjacent to Balmoral, where an abundance of occasional trout and salmon are caught,” a source told The Sun in September 2020.
