Every summer, the Queen retreats to her Scottish estate Balmoral, for some relaxation and privacy. But some of the most prolific news stories, scandals and tragedies have broken while the royals have been at the estate - including Sarah Ferguson's toe-sucking photos in 1992 and Princess Diana's death in 1997. Speaking on Yahoo UK’s ‘The Royal Box,’ The Sun’s former royal editor Duncan Larcombe says: “This is a place where some of the biggest events to affect the Royal Family have broken, whilst they’ve been there in this hideout. “It is a hideout, it’s in the middle of nowhere.”
