Traditionally, August is the month that the royal family take some time off from their hectic public schedules. This summer alone, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have traveled up and down England, completed a tour of Ireland, and appeared at endless public events in and around London, so the newlyweds have definitely earned some downtime away from the spotlight. Seeing as it’s strictly personal for the next few weeks, we probably can’t expect Kensington Palace to keep us updated on the Duke and Duchess’s whereabouts, but it’s been said through reports that Meghan and Harry have made some cute vacation plans with the Queen.
It’s thought that the couple will soon head North to Scotland, to spend a few days with Meghan’s new BFF and Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. Apparently, the Queen always loves her family to pop round for a cup of tea during her two-month-long stay at the castle, before she heads back to London at the beginning of October.
Balmoral Castle is one of the royal family’s two private residences that belong to the monarchy, according to the royals’ website.
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip often brought their children here when they were growing up. Now, the royal couple returns here every year for the summer and welcome royal relatives as guests. The activities often include hunting, hiking, picnics, and barbecues, through reports. Meghan is surely in for a busy trip.
