Prince William and Kate are continuing their summer vacation in the country

By Meaghan Wray

The Cambridge clan are carrying on with their summer vacation, only this time a little closer to home! After enjoying some well-deserved R&R in the Caribbean paradise of Mustique – where Prince William and Kate enjoyed a date night out, sans kids – the family of five have packed their bags and retired to their Norfolk residence, Anmer Hall. With school out until September, Prince George and Princess Charlotte are getting in some bonding time with their new little brother, Prince Louis.

The Duke of Cambridge was spotted in Norfolk by Twitter user Cepe Smith as he was travelling to and from France for his royal engagement with the Royal Air Force. It’s a beautiful way to wrap up their summer as a family, as the 10-bedroom Georgian home on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate was where their first two kids lived before the entire family relocated to Kensington Palace – where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be moving shortly!

After soaking up the sun at their tropical getaway, alongside Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton, they’re certainly enjoying a change of scenery – and it’s one of Duchess of Cambridge’s favourites. Not only is the estate on a no-fly zone, which offers maximum privacy for the family and their Cocker Spaniel Lupo, but they also get to enjoy authentic country living. While on an engagement in 2017, she told schoolchildren on a farm that the family keeps their own chickens in Norfolk!

Come fall, the family will be back to school and back to their royal duties! But the excitement for the Royal Family is certainly not over. On Oct. 12, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will say “I do” at St. George’s Chapel in what promises to be a moving ceremony. And we’re crossing our fingers for some adorable shots of little Charlotte and George as bridesmaid and pageboy once again!
