Move Aside run-of-the-mill Activities. Kate Middleton’s Brother has this Unusual Hobby up his Sleeve!
Each of us has a hobby. Whether it’s an interest in playing a sport, video games, art, or even fishing, there’s always something that takes our mind off the hustle of life and relaxes us while also giving creative satisfaction.
There’s a tall order of unusual hobbies that people can engage in. Some people like activities that aren’t quite common; beekeeping, for example! The activity is cultivated as a hobby only by a selected few, and this time around, we’re here to highlight a high-profile person who not just loves engaging in this pastime, but claims to be in love with bees!
James Middleton, Kate Middleton’s brother, apparently likes to spend his time all around bees. In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, James was quoted as saying that there are very few places where he prefers to be rather than feeding his bees. During the Coronavirus pandemic, James has been quarantining with his fiancée, Alizee Thevenet, at the Middleton family home of Bucklebury Manor in Berkshire, England.
This house contains eight beehives that are home to more than 500 thousand bees! James expressed his gratitude for the presence of these beautiful creatures during the problematic period the world is going through, saying that he had spent a very happy time with them during the lockdown.
Explaining that his family is aware and supportive of his peculiar hobby, James further said that in 2011, his sisters Kate and Pippa, and his parents Michael and Carroll bought him “the nucleus.” Terming it as “the most fantastic birthday gift,” James described the incident saying that a van delivered a large buzzing box with the cautionary label ‘Live Bees’ to his residence. When he opened it, inside was the nucleus, which became the start of his bee colony. The nucleus contained about 1,000 Buckfast bees.
James has suffered from severe depression in the past, but fortunately, he finds an escape from the stresses of life and relief from constant anxiety when he is next to his bees. He has openly acknowledged that the buzzing mutes everything that is worrying him. Since the gift came to him, James has adhered to his hobby, giving away between 50 and 100 jars of honey from his beehives annually to family and friends.
Though it may seem a little surprising to some, you’ll find it interesting to know that Kate’s brother, who represents one of the most prominent personalities in the world, is not the only celebrity who practices this hobby. Bees and beehives can also be found at the homes of several other famous people in the world, such as England soccer player David Beckham, and even Hollywood stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson, and Morgan Freeman.
