This was Catherine's first visit to Balmoral as a member of the Royal Family
Surely, the funniest lines:
"Royal author Ingrid Seward said the holiday in Scotland would also allow Kate to meet all the staff at Balmoral in preparation for her possible future role as mistress of the house.
Miss Seward, editor in chief of Majesty, said:"It is an important visit in many ways - not least because The Queen will want Kate to meet all the staff - one day she will be responsible for them. There will be a three-line whip on to introduce her to everyone. "
By the time, Catherine is the Queen Consort (and her husband the King, who will be the owner of Balmoral), one assumes that the current staff will either be dead or very old!
