Her Majesty the Queen’s health after it has emerged that the traditional royal welcome to Balmoral Castle has been cancelled – to be replaced with a “small, private event”, according to reports.Her Majesty is known to be keen on performing as many of her traditional duties as possible.However it was felt that the annual inspection of a Guard of Honour from Balaklava Company, 5th Battalion, The Royal ­Regiment of Scotland might be too much off for the 96-year-old monarch.

Now Kate Middleton and Prince William's Windsor move could cause drama
move to Adelaide Cottage – a “humble” Grade II-listed property just a short walk from Windsor Castle.While Kensington Palace has been their main residence since 2017, Kate and Wills are said to be keen to raise their children – George, eight, Charlotte, seven, and Louis, four – in more of a rural setting, with the added benefit that they will be just ten minutes away from 96-year-old Queen Elizabeth.The four-bedroom cottage is said to have been chosen by the couple due to its modest offerings and the fact it has no need for renovation, having undergone work in 2015.Many have noted the contrast between the Cambridges’ choice and that of Harry and Meghan, who came under fire after spending an estimated £2.4million of taxpayers’ money renovating their chosen residence, Frogmore Cottage, also in Windsor. The full amount was eventually paid back by the Sussexes, following their departure from frontline duties.Kate and Wills’ decision to move closer to the Queen may cause further tension between them and the Sussexes – who live in a £11m house in California – particularly following Harry’s recent comments about ,“Making sure [the Queen is] protected and has the right people around her.”And even with William turning 40 this week, an opportunity to make peace together seems far from anyone’s plans, as a royal insider tells us, “This is a huge milestone for William – and Harry knows it – but Meghan believes they’ve got to stop making the first move and offering all these olive branches that just get thrown back in their faces.
