King Charles’ Scottish estate Balmoral has suffered flood damage, according to an official tweet warning visitors to take care

Balmoral, the royal family’s residence in Scotland, has sadly been damaged by recent floods in the area, according to an official tweet.

A message from the castle and estate’s official Twitter account on Sunday read: “Please take great care if you’re visiting Loch Muick. The floods have caused significant damage to our tracks and bridges.”

Underneath the announcement were two pictures illustrating the harm the floods had caused, including one which showed a path having worn away and another featuring a partially submerged wooden bridge.

The estate was a haven for the late Queen Elizabeth II, who spent a significant period of time there every summer.

King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla also share a home on the estate, where they retreated to following the Queen’s funeral in September.

Since acceding to the throne, the monarch has made some changes to the decor at Balmoral Castle, as photos revealed last month.

Photos showed the flood damage

The King held a meeting with Governor of Victoria Linda Dessau at the residence and images released from the meeting soon afterward showed the pair standing in the library.

Eagle-eyed fans noticed that although much of the room had remained untouched since the Queen’s death, King Charles had made a couple of updates to add his own personal touches to the room.

They include swapping out two green armchairs for bold red leather chairs topped with colourful patchwork cushions, creating a comfortable spot for meetings or to relax.

Balmoral has been the royal family’s Scottish home since 1852

Another new addition to the space appeared to be a thermostat positioned on the mantelpiece of the room alongside a pair of running figurine lamps and an antique clock that was said to have been treasured by the Queen.

Charles had also removed an electric heater that had previously been seen in front of the open fireplace, however, it may not have been cold enough to need a heater on during the October meeting.
