Queen Elizabeth’s grandson James is now performing a duty previously carried out by Prince Philip. James, the third son of Prince Edward, has recently taken over the reins of a role previously held by the Duke of Edinburgh, who could no longer perform his role due to old age.

Despite the chaos that the royal family is currently in, Queen Elizabeth still makes it a point to host gatherings at her Balmoral Estate every now and then to spend some quality time with her family. One of their favorite activities is enjoying a good old-fashioned family barbecue.

Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Philip, used to flip burgers during family gatherings but due to old age, he is no longer as active as he was before. Since his grandson James is just as skilled as he is at flipping burgers, he has reportedly taken on the role of his grandpa each time they gather together for some barbecues.

The young royal grandson reportedly enjoys flipping burgers just like Prince Philip, so he is happy to take on the role of his grandpa now that he is too old to attend their family barbecue parties. Back in September, a royal insider revealed that James is in fact Queen Elizabeth’s favorite grandson and that she is amused whenever he takes charge of the burgers at Balmoral.

“James is rather good at flipping burgers and liked to get fully involved whenever there was a family BBQ at Balmoral,” said the source. “That used to be Prince Philip’s domain, but is less so these days.” The source also revealed that James is also quite skilled at fly fishing. “His enthusiasm for fly fishing delighted Her Majesty because it’s a sport beloved of James’ great-granny, the late Queen Mother,” he added.

James reportedly loves fly fishing a lot that he often jumps into the river and wades around in water up to his armpits with his mother, Sophie of Wessex. Interestingly, Sophie also happens to be a skilled fisherwoman. “The Balmoral ghillies were impressed with both of them,” said the source.
