Prince William and Prince George often have a father-son day on the Glorious Twelfth, as they wander the Balmoral Moors and try to shoot grouse.
However, I have heard that the day may not be so glorious this year as the August 12 festivities will likely be called off following a frigid spring that killed many young birds.
This means that there is a shortage of grouse, one of the most popular game birds. Game wardens across the country have therefore suggested that estates cancel their shoots or postpone them until later in the year.
This can include Balmoral. A spokesperson for the Royal Family tells me they are “leaving it up to the experts” to decide whether they should open next week for filming, and will not be determined whether a decision has already been made.
Prince George’s godfather, the Duke of Westminster, owns one of the largest grouse hunting estates at Abbeystead in Lancashire. It often hosts groups for the 12th century, and could be affected by the lack of birds.

The Bolton Abbey estate in North Yorkshire, owned by the Duke of Devonshire, is considering canceling the festivities after a ‘dark’ year.
Luckily for royals who enjoy field sports, other game, including deer, is always plentiful.
The Queen has always loved stalking deer around her Scottish estate, so the aristocracy and the royal family will have a blast this filming season.
This prestigious date earned Queen Victoria’s royal approval when she faced Balmoral, and this significance meant that whoever was anyone had to be in the moors by the late 1800s. The tradition continues today.

Wills and Kate’s charity explodes after Megxit
When Prince Harry and Meghan left the Royal Foundation which they ran with Prince William and Catherine, their cheerleaders predicted it would have a dramatic effect on the finances of the association. And he’s – they’ve soared!
I can reveal that The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge saw an increase in revenue last year, reaching £ 11.78million.
That’s almost double the £ 6.68million raised in 2019, when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were still involved. “It’s the Meghan effect,” jokes a courtier, a little nastily.
Newly released documents reveal that the 2020 total includes a £ 2.59million grant from the American Friends of the Royal Foundation.
Obviously, the California-based Sussexes haven’t won over all Americans.

Will the awakened crowd then look for Sir Mick Jagger?

“Read that one (Stupid Girl) lyrics and tell me which one is the misogynist, me or Mick?” “
Stupid Girl is definitely not pretty. Jagger sang, “The way she powder her nose / Her vanity shows and it shows / She’s the worst thing in the world / Well look at that stupid girl.”
Why Babs is not a woman in love with her own story
Despite having won two Oscars, eight Grammys, five Emmys, and eight Golden Globes, Barbra Streisand insists her life is actually rather boring.
The two-time-married 79-year-old Woman In Love singer has been working on her autobiography for eight years and says, “I’m bored – that’s why I have a researcher who is looking for all the facts about my life. I also kept journals for many years, and I don’t even want to look at them.
“I’ve never been someone to look back on. So it was difficult for me to write a book in the first place. But I’m almost done. I did the first 824 pages.
“Now I just have to catch up on the next 23 years. . . ‘
