Prince William and Kate left Kensington Palace and took their three kids to Anmer Hall, their country home at Norfolk, just before the pandemic started. And they have been staying there ever since.
As a lockdown was introduced the two senior royals faced brand new challenges, as they had to take up homeschooling duties for their two eldest children, as their school, Thomas’s Battersea, was still setting up their remote learning platform for the crisis. Prince George and Princess Charlotte are on summer break at the moment, but their school will be reopening for the fall term on September 7, and as of now it looks like it will be in-person schooling.
Perhaps because of this, a royal source has told Express that the Cambridge family will soon be returning to their London household, Kensington Palace.
This means that the Cambridge family will finally return to London after they relocated to their Norfolk home in the spring. For the most part all five members of the royal family have stayed there, with Prince William and Kate Middleton going on multiple engagements during this time period. The family did make a short family vacation though, when they visited Tresco, in the Isles of Scilly.
During the lockdown, Prince William and Kate did multiple virtual appearances, before continuing with public engagements when the restrictions got lighter. The family, as they spend most of their time at Anmer Hall, got lots of quality family time.
When they return to London, Kate and William will returns to their usual royal duties and engagements, all the while following the protocols and measures that are still in place due to the pandemic.
Before they do return, it seems the Cambridge five have one more thing planned. Prince William and Kate are planning on taking the children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to Balmoral to see the Queen and Prince Phillip. At the Queen’s Scottish estate there are very strict protocols to ensure the monarch’s health and safety. This will be a pleasant visit for the Queen, as she hasn’t seen the Cambridge family ever since way before the pandemic lockdown.
