Queen meets with Prince William, Kate and children for first time since March

This week the Queen met with William, Kate and her three great-grandchildren during a socially-distant reunion at Balmoral, it has been reported.

It was the first time since all of them had been together since before lockdown began back in March.

Prince William and Kate Middleton visited the Queen and Prince Philip at the Scottish castle, where the monarch and her husband have been staying in a secure bubble.

Sources told The Sun Online that managed to spend some time with George, seven, Charlotte, five and Louise, two, outside the massive estate.

Wills and Kate described feeling "over the Moon" to make the reunion and wanted to show their support following what had been a "difficult year".

But, the Queen, 94, and 99-year-old Prince Philip remain subject to strict measures – dubbed by their staff as "HMS Bubble".

A source told the publication: "Like every family, they’ve been desperate to get back together and over the Moon that it was possible this weekend.

"They’ve all been up there for a few days and although there are very strict procedures with social distancing, they’ve been able to find ways of seeing each other outside.

"It’s obviously been a difficult year for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh seeing the country dealing with the pandemic, so they were all keen to go there to show their support."

Prince Edward and Princess Anne were also understood to have been at the private Scottish estate over the weekend.

It is unknown whether Prince Andrew has travelled to visit his mum.

Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will "come together" with the Royal Family.

The book Finding Freedom explores those topics but one of its authors, Omid Scobie, believes the families could eventually heal their differences.

Speaking on the most recent episode of his ABC podcast HeirPod, he told co-host Maggie Rulli: "It’s important to note that, while we haven’t seen a change between Meghan and Kate, the relationships between the Sussexes and the Queen are very strong and continue to be so.

"I do see a world in which the family come together and we see them all crossing paths in a much more organic, family-based way.

"It won’t be about the work. Listen, people say it’s best not to work with family and perhaps that might be the thing here."
