And it all makes sense.
While the Queen spent most of the last year isolated to Windsor Castle, she did manage to have a little break at her summer home in Balmoral, Scotland, with her late husband Prince Philip and their two dorgis.
Also in attendance of course were the Cambridges, as Prince William and Kate Middleton took Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to Scotland for a special holiday before returning to school.
The Cambridge family made news however as it was reported that they didn't actually stay with the Queen and Prince Philip during their holiday, and on closer inspection, it appears that they rarely do.
Why? Because they have their own property on the Balmoral estate.
The three-bedroom cottage was a gift to Prince William from the Queen Mother and according to friends, the couple has had some of their happiest times there.
That way, the family of five can live in their own property but see their relatives every day.
Well, that's that.
