Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge Teams Up With Sister Pippa Middleton To Surprise Their Brother, James, With A Life-Changing Gift In Sweet Video As Prince William’s Wife Debuts New Hairstyle

Kate Middleton's New Hair And Gift Bees For Brother James

This is what real love between siblings looks like — Kate Middleton, with the help of her family, including Pippa Middleton, delivered an exceptional gift to her brother, James Middleton.

James, who was celebrating his birthday, received an impressive colony of bees thanks to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

The businessman and animal lover shared a video on Instagram, where he is enjoying his sweet passion for beekeeping.

He wrote an article where he revealed that he was shocked when a delivery truck showed up to his home with 1,000 Buckfast bees inside.

James went on to say that the gift was life-changing because it made it possible for him to have a large colony.

The passionate beekeeper explained that he now has 500,000 bees living in 8 hives at the family home in Bucklebury Manor.

In his love letter to bees, he confessed: “I’d always harbored a longing to keep bees, but it wasn’t until I turned 24 in 2011 that the wish became reality. My family—mum, dad, and sisters Catherine and Pippa—clubbed together to buy what was the most fantastic birthday gift imaginable for me. A delivery van arrived with a large buzzing box with the cautionary label: ‘Live Bees.’ Inside was the nucleus—the start—of my colony: 1,000 Buckfast bees.”

Royal fans were quick to call James a renaissance man with a kind heart.

An Instagrammer had this to say after reading the article: “Well done, James, and thank you for advocating for these fabulous little guys. I have a wild swarm move into my intended-Owl nesting box! Obviously, the To-Let sign got lost in translation! 😁 But very happy to have them.”

Many of you know I am passionate about dogs 🐾 , but not many know I am almost as passionate about bees 🐝 . I have ten hives at Bucklebury & I’m fascinated by the little creatures. From their waggle dance to the queen laying her own body weight in eggs a day… there‘s a lot to be said about these humble little creatures. In a worker bees life she will produce just 1/10th of a teaspoon of honey- think of how many bees are needed for one jar 🍯 . But that’s not it. Bee keeping to me is a meditation 🧘‍♂️ it’s a chance to escape my mind and be so consumed by something that hours can pass by without knowing it. Meditation is a wonderful tool to help with stress, anxiety, depression and doesn’t just need to be practiced sitting down! 🧘‍♂️ 🏃‍♂️ 🚶‍♂️ . Lastly honey. Honey is one of natures finest medicines. From antibacterial properties, aiding digestion, hay fever, colds, energy and even as cure for sleeping disorders the list goes on. I have a teaspoon of honey every day and couldn’t recommend it more 🍯 . So as this little homage to the honest little honey be ends remember raw local honey is best & yes I do get stung all the time but its worth it! 🐝 ❤️ . #beekeeping #rawhoney #bees #savethebees #beesofinstagram #honeyisthebestmedicine #wildflowerhoney #meditation #activemeditation #mentalhealth #mindfulness #mentalhealthawareness
