But Balmoral sources say castle workers have kept warm by helping locals.

They use wood-burning stoves and camp stoves to provide hot water for their cottages and provide soup for retirees.

It comes after My Gwrych Castle in North Wales was evacuated during a storm.

Balmoral’s power is now back up and running, but some lodges and remote hunting lodges on the 50,000-acre property are still cut.

An insider said: “The staff are a very hardworking team as winters in the Highlands can be tough. But without heating it was frozen.

“Everybody gathered. Castles have no special treatment.

“Everybody says it’s a good job the Queen stays in Windsor or Norfolk in December.”
