And already we're hearing that a movie about this trip is in the works: National Lampoon's Balmoral Estate Vacation! JK!
Okay, so until Lifetime tells us otherwise, there's no movie happening, but William and Kate WILL be joining The Queen for a summer holiday at the Balmoral estate in Scotland late next month.
Other royals in attendance will be Prince Philip, Prince Charles & Camilla, and the Balmoral staff.
Given the fact that Kate will one day be mistress of the Balmoral estate, this will be a good opportunity for her to meet the staff. More importantly though, it will be a chance for her to bond with The Queen.
"This is quite an important visit for Kate because, believe it or not, The Queen does not really know her very well at all."
"Kate has never had an invitation before to stay at Balmoral - but she is family now and The Queen wants to get to know her…The Queen needs to present Kate to Scotland. The time has come."
Very exciting! We can't wait to hear all about the trip, and we hope The Queen and Kate become total BFFs by the end of it! Ha!
