A Treehouse Fit for a King! Prince George's Own Treehouse at Highgrove

According to well-placed royal sources, the future king regularly enjoys picnics in the gardens with George and has even bought him a tea set, complete with plastic cups, to play with.

The little prince, who is third in line to the throne, is said to be particularly taken with the spectacular treehouse his grandfather had built for William and Harry.

MZ WallaceHidden away in an area of the garden known as The Stumpery (so-called because there are layers upon layers of old tree stumps and logs) it was designed by William Bertram for the then five and three-year-old princes.

Mr Bertram asked to interview the boys about what they wanted and William told him: ‘I want it to be as high as possible so I can get away from everyone and I want a rope ladder which I can pull up so no-one can get at me.’

The treehouse – named Hollyrood House after the Queen’s palace in Scotland, but also because it was originally built in a holly bush – was finally installed just in time for William’s seventh birthday in 1989.

Charles has owned Highgrove House since 1980, having bought it from Maurice Macmillan, a Conservative MP and son of the former Prime Minister Harold Macmillan  Click link for full post from The Daily Mail.

The clean lines and simple prints are from a bygone era, but the sales – not to mention her extraordinary influence – are a very modern phenomenon.

A favourite of the Duchess of Cambridge, designer Rachel Riley has transformed the children’s clothing market as middle-class shoppers rush to dress their tots like Prince George.

Sole SocietyWhen the Prince wore Riley’s white shirt and red shorts to his sister’s christening three weeks ago, the £85 ensemble sold out within hours.  Click link for full post from The Daily Mail.

Torrential rain and high winds may have caused today's scheduled America's Cup race to be called off but it didn't dampen the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's spirits.

Keen sailors Kate and William - who appeared to take their famously strong partnership a step further by stepping out in matching navy fleeces, printed with their royal titles - headed to Portsmouth to meet with Olympic gold medallist Sir Ben Ainslie and his crew.

Although the sailing was cancelled just an hour after the pair's arrival due to 'extreme weather', their royal highnesses were far from short of things to do.

Kate tried her hand at a virtual reality sailing game and was presented with tiny team tops for Prince George and Princess Charlotte with their names on by sisters Ella Morgan, 13, and Millie Morgan, 11.

Tom Parker-Bowles says Kate and Camilla Get Along Just Fine

A show of unity: The Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Cornwall, pictured on the balcony of Buckingham Palace during Trooping the Colour in June, are said to enjoy an on-off friendship 


They are two of the most famous women in the world, and there has reportedly been a power struggle between them over access to Prince George.

But according to the Duchess of Cornwall's son Tom Parker-Bowles, his mother and Kate Middleton enjoy a warm relationship. 'They get on fine', the 40-year-old food critic told Daily Mail Australia.

'I don't think there's any truth to [the rumours of tension]. Well, I can't guarantee for sure, but I think that's all bulls**t'.

'They get on': Tom Parker-Bowles insists mother Camilla and step-daughter-in-law Kate get on despite reports they failed to see eye-to-eye when Prince Charles complained he did not see enough of nephew Prince George
