Prince George and Princess Charlotte officially finished school on July 3rd. So, summer vacation can start, but how will they spend it?
Prince George and Princess Charlotte will now have a new type of problem! With school officially ending on July third, and the summer vacation starting, the two will have to find a good way to spend it. They have been homeschooled by Prince William and Kate, since March due to the global pandemic that hit the UK.
But now with the restrictions beginning to ease and the situation cooling off, royal fans are wondering how the Cambridge family will spend their summer break.
ROYAL FAMILY GO HOME
For this summer break, the Cambridge’s might decide to shake things up a bit. Usually they spend their summer break at their Norfolk country home, Anmer Hall. But the family of five have already been stuck there since March.
So, there is a real possibility that the couple could decide to come back to their official residence Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace in London, a change from their usual summer break that they spend in the countryside.
Starting July 4th, the guidelines will state that two households can meet indoors while maintaining social distancing of one meter plus. This comes as good news to family all across the UK just waiting for reunions. And the same goes for the royal family as well.
Speaking during a recent visit to Fakenham Garden Centre, Kate explained: “I’ve yet to see my family as they’re about three hours away in Berkshire. So I haven’t seen them and I miss them.”
The Duchess’ parents Carole and Michael Middleton have been spending the lockdown with Kate’s younger brother James and his fiancée Alizee Thevenet at their home Bucklebury manor.
The Cambridge family already have something to look forward to! Their eldest child, Prince George, will be turning seven on July 22nd. No doubt royal fans will get brand new photos of the birthday boy and his family, all made by Kate herself. And God knows what she has been up to during the quarantine!
This has become sort of an unofficial tradition for them, starting with Princess Charlotte’s birth in 2015.
Both Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis had their birthday celebrated the same way. Louis was pictured getting messy with rainbow-coloured paint as he turned two in April. Charlotte turned volunteer as she helped to deliver food parcels to the vulnerable in Sandringham in images to mark her fifth birthday in May.
Last year, when George turned six, he was photographed wearing an England shirt while playing outside in the grounds of Kensington Palace. Another photo was also released, showing George wearing a green polo shirt and striped shorts. It was taken during a family holiday-most likely taken while they were on vacation on the Caribbean island Mustique.
Despite the restrictions easing up, travelling abroad is still out of reach. So, it is not very likely that the Cambridge’s will get the chance of visiting other countries this summer. Perhaps the family will go on a more local vacation in the UK instead. The Duchess revealed during a trip to Keswick in Cumbria that she and William had taken George, Charlotte and Louis on a trip to the Lake District during the May half-term.
One well-wisher disclosed at the time: “She said that it was raining a lot and was a long way from their home in Norfolk. But they love it here”.
Another added: “She said that her children love coming here and walking in the fells. She told us how nice the Lake District was and how lucky we were to live so close to the mountains.”
With the Queen also reportedly due to still take her traditional summer vacation at her Scottish estate, Balmoral, the Cambridges may also decide to stay in the grounds as they have done in previous years.
