We like a bit of gossip here at GoneDigging, especially where The Royals are concerned. The second in line to the throne – well, the Duke of Cambridge, that is – just celebrated his 30th birthday not long ago... by being dragged in a rubber ring through the sub-zero sea via a speed boat. Nice. Whatever floats his boat n’ all that (please excuse the pun).
Much to the Duke’s dismay, instead of it being a sunny, 20-something-degree day, it peed down with rain and poor Wills looked more like a drowned rat than a prince.
Regardless of the naff weather, the resolute royal insisted on going to the Welsh sea to experience his birthday gift, courtesy of his lovely wife.
You’d think most 30-year-olds who’ve just inherited £10 million would rather die than freeze their butts off on a wet weekend in North Wales. But not our Wills.
To mark ‘thirtyhood’, the Queen is giving the lucky Duke his very own cottage on the Sandringham estate. That’s enough to make anyone slightly pea-green with envy, right?
Pssst... Rumour has it that the Duke will build a property so he can raise a wee family of his own. Like we said, GoneDigging relishes a bit a’ tattletale from time to time. Royal or not, our 30th birthday gifts are bound to please even the most discerning of folks – but for any thrill-seeking 30-year-old who ain’t shy of the water like Wills, then our wet ‘n’ wild gift experiences might be just the ticket.
