James Middleton has written an article for the Daily Mail about his love of bees.
Kate and Pippa Middleton's brother revealed that his family "clubbed together to buy what for me was the most fantastic birthday gift imaginable."
James now shares his passion with his fiancée, Alizee Thevenet.
Most people know that Pippa and Kate Middleton's brother, James Middleton, has a love of dogs, which he regularly showcases on Instagram. But fans of the family might not realize that James is also a big fan of beekeeping.
In a new article written for the Daily Mail, James revealed that his family encouraged his love of bees in the best way. Kate's brother wrote, "I’d always harbored a longing to keep bees, but it wasn’t until I turned 24 in 2011 that the wish became reality."
In an adorable move, the Middleton clan stepped in and helped get James started as a beekeeper. He explained, "my family—mum, dad and my sisters Catherine and Pippa—clubbed together to buy what for me was the most fantastic birthday gift imaginable. 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."
I’ve written a little love letter to the amazing little honey bee ❤️🍯 🐝 which is featured in today’s @dailymail . I’ve been a passionate advocate of these ingenious, industrious little creatures since I became a beekeeper myself nearly a decade ago, having fallen for them as a child. I now have almost half a million bees in eight hives in a meadow at our family home, Bucklebury Manor in Berkshire. And I’ve whiled away many happy hours with them during lockdown. I’m in awe of these incredible insects. They perform a little waggle dance, an insect version of sat-nav, to signal to each other where the best flowers are. link in bio for full article 📰

Impressively, James revealed, "I now have almost half a million bees in eight hives in a meadow at our family home, Bucklebury Manor in Berkshire." Basically, it would seem that the gift he received from his family all those years ago has completely transformed his life.
