The time together also meant Charles could continue forging the ‘lovely relationship’ he shares with his daughter-in-law.

The source added that Charles has a ‘real soft spot’ for the Duchess of Sussex and has been ‘very supportive’ of her as she continues to face public criticism from her own father, Thomas Markle.

The Queen Mother acquired the Castle of Mey, in Caithness, on the far north-east coast of Scotland, shortly after the death of her husband King George VI in 1952.

She remained fond of the coastal property and holidayed there every year until her death. 

Prince Charles, who was very close to his maternal grandmother, now spends time there with the Duchess of Cornwall, 69, every summer.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are understood to have spent several days at the Castle of Mey with Charles at the start of August and time with the Queen, 92, at Balmoral, Aberdeenshire, later in the month.   

They have since returned to London and their busy schedule of royal engagements. 

The couple attended a charity performance of West End musical Hamilton and were guests of honour at the WellChild Awards in London last week. 

Most recently the couple attended a gala benefiting military veterans and their families.
