School summer holidays are about to start and Prince William and Kate Middleton will have their three little royals at home longer. More specifically Prince George and Princess Charlotte take a break from their school Thomas’ in London’s Battersea on 8 July, while their younger sibling, the four-year-old Prince Louis’ nursery school Willcocks finishes for the summer on 6 July.
The Duke and Duchess are no doubt looking forward to spending the two months of school summer holidays in a more relaxed setting with their kids after a busy time celebrating Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
Kate revealed how young George helped them around the estate when she and William visited a local goat farm in Wales back in March.
A conversation between William and farm owners Gary and Jess Yeomans about a robot silage sweeper used to move feed prompted Kate to add: “That was George’s job at half term -moving feed.”
This isn’t the first William and Kate have involved their kids with farming around their country home, when speaking to Rhian Roberts, an elementary school teacher and dairy farmer, back in 2020, William revealed that the Cambridge kids help deliver lambs during their time off from school.
“We’ve been lambing with the children this week,” revealed William. “Charlotte wasn’t sure at first, but George was straight in there. Louis loves the tractors.”
This summer will also see William and Kate, along with their children, move into a new home – Adelaide Cottage – much closer to the rest of the royals.
Adelaide Cottage is a “grace-and-favour” home owned by the Queen which she can choose to offer up to anyone she likes. It is a four-bedroom property on the Windsor estate meaning it’s much closer to the Queen at Windsor Castle, Harry and Meghan at Frogmore Cottage and Prince Andre and Sarah Ferguson at Royal Lodge.
