Why Prince William and Duchess Catherine will be taking a break from their royal duties this week

We're sure Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be excited!

Prince William and Duchess Catherine will be taking a break from their royal duties this week to spend time with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
George, 5, and Charlotte, 3, like many other children across the UK, are on mid-term break this week and we imagine the young royals will be incredibly excited to spend some quality time with their parents and their younger brother, 9-month-old Louis.

And with all the royal engagements William and Kate have attended of late, we're sure they're keen for a little break too.
While it's not yet known where the Cambridges will be spending their downtime, there's a high chance they may head to their country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, the location where the family's 2018 Christmas card photo was taken.

William and Kate are also experts on the ski field, so they may opt for a ski holiday. It was around this time in 2016 that the then family-of-four, jetted off for their first ski holiday in the French Alps.
Following the trip, the Cambridges shared some seriously adorable snaps of the four of them rugged up and playing in the snow.
A Kensington Palace spokesperson said at the time, "The images show Their Royal Highnesses enjoying a short skiing holiday with their children in the French Alps.
"This was their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children had played in the snow.
"It was a very special and fun short holiday for the family."

In July 2018, following the birth of Prince Louis, the Cambridges went on their first holiday as a family-of-five, to the tropical island of Mustique, in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
Known as one of William and Kate's go-to holiday destinations, the secluded island is also a favourite for the Middleton clan and was the spot Kate picked for her babymoons before welcoming George and Charlotte.

Earlier this month while visiting a North London primary school, Kate revealed spending time with her family was when she felt her happiest.
Pulling out a photo of the Cambridges' 2018 Christmas card from her purse, the Duchess told the children in the classroom, "This is a photo of my family, these are my children.
"My family makes me feel happy. And we like playing outside together and spending lots of time together as a family. And that makes me feel very happy."
The visit was in respect of Children's Mental Health Week, with the Duchess, who is patron of Place2Be, showing her support by spending time with the youngsters at the school.
Place2Be provides in-school support and expert training to improve the well-being of pupils, teachers and families.
