Queen Elizabeth was famous for bathing royal members with lavish gifts.
However, in the case of the granddaughters of Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, the king was forbidden from giving them a mansion worth millions of pounds for a confusing reason.
According to royal insiders, the Queen tried to give Princess Eugenie and Beatrice a £ 1.5 million Birch Hall home in 1997.
However, the gift was rejected by the princesses mother, Sarah Ferguson, only in their childhood.
This is because she feared her family would not be able to maintain the splendid mansion.
The Birch Hall, home to a noisy tennis court, a heated outdoor swimming pool, and a separate two-bedroom staff-style country house, went on sale.
Because the Queen has properties throughout the UK, she has a habit of passing them on to those close to her.
The authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand revealed in their book Free search, “The Queen is very happy to be giving homes to her family members,”; said a senior aide.
“The Queen gave Sunninghill Park to Prince Andrew; Bagshot Park to Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex; and Anmer Hall to William and Kate.
“‘That’s her thing!’ the assistant added.
