The Queen traditionally retreats to Balmoral every summer - but why do the royals love the Scottish estate so much? Host Kate Thornton is joined by royal commentator Omid Scobie, The Sun’s former royal editor Duncan Larcombe and The Sunday Times’ royal correspondent Roya Nikkhah to discuss life at Balmoral and where the royals like to holiday to get away from it all.

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.”
The Royal Family face a problem when the Queen dies and it’s all to do with the popularity of the monarchy, according to one royal expert. Tim Ewart, ITV News’ former royal editor tells Yahoo UK’s ‘The Royal Box’: “The reality for the monarchy is that when the Queen dies, one of the reasons for the monarchy’s popularity will be gone. “A large part of the popularity of the monarchy is based on the popularity of the Queen. Will that transfer to her son? Open question, we don’t know, but there are suggestions that he’s not as popular as she is.”
Paul Burrell, who was the Queen’s footman before he became Princess Diana reveals to Yahoo UK’s ‘The Royal Box,’ reveals Her Majesty doesn’t have any clothes - or costumes as she calls them - in her rooms. He says: “She has to have her outfits brought down to her, all her clothes are kept on the top floor. “Her dresser will bring down in the morning two outfits, which are sketched with pieces of material clipped to them so that the Queen can remember whether it’s silk or cotton or wool. “The one the Queen picks is the one which is brought downstairs from up above so she doesn’t actually see her wardrobe with clothes in it.”
The Sussexes have officially split away from their joint The Royal Foundation with the Cambridges, so what does this mean for the future? CNN’s royal commentator Victoria Arbiter, royal author Phil Dampier and PR expert Nick Ede discuss the pros and cons with host Kate Thornton. They also discuss the recent royal family get-togethers at Trooping the Colour, Garter day and Ascot and whether these ceremonial traditions will continue in future when Charles and then William are king. Victoria Arbiter, speaking from a US perspective, gives her take on what Americans think of the Royal Family. Elsewhere, Yahoo UK’s royal correspondent Danielle Stacey speaks to Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell. Before working for Diana, Mr Burrell was a footman for the Queen. He tells some of his favourite anecdotes about Her Majesty, including their flight on Concorde and how she’s a great mimic. He also reveals that Meghan Markle wouldn’t have been given any formal preparation for joining the Royal Family.
