Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge Wears Tartan For Balmoral Church Service But There’s No Sign Of Prince George

It was a family outing for Kate Middleton and Prince William yesterday as the new parents joined the Queen and other members of the royal family for a church service at the monarch’s summer retreat in Balmoral. But there was one very important person missing…

Kate and William left the royal family’s newest addition, Prince George at home as they made a low key visit to the morning church service.

The two-month-old was left in the capable hands of nanny Jessie Webb as his parents headed to to the local church for a service with Prince Charles and Camilla as well as The Queen and Prince Philip.

According to a photo obtained by Us Weekly, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were seen driving to Crathie Kirk near Balmoral, where they are currently enjoying a break with their newborn.

Kate was wearing a £425 blue and grey tartan coat by Brit designer brand Moloh that she previously chose for an engagement in Glasgow in April 2013, accessorised with a black hat and drop earrings.

Kate, William and little George flew to Scotland a little over a week ago after packing up their Anglesey home, following the news that the duke has officially stepped down from his RAF job.

The trip to Balmoral has meant that George has finally been introduced to his great-grandfather Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who has been in residence at the Scottish retreat with the Queen since late July.

Insiders claim he had been excited to meet George, as he was the only senior member of the royal family not to have met the future King, now seven months old. “This was an incredible moment for Philip,” a source told The Mirror.

“He has been desperate to meet his great grandson and having the family together is really special for him.”

“This has been a very busy time for the Duke and Duchess. They have always been determined to introduce George to Philip as soon as possible, but there just hasn’t been the time until now,” the insider continued. “This will be a very special holiday for them all.”
