The Duchess of Cambridge purposely has kept her royal diary free this weekend as she wanted to enjoy the half-term break her three children have fully. We knew nothing about the Duchess’ plans for George, Charlotte and Louis till now, as a royal fan has revealed at least where the Cambridge are spending their week. The family has, as expected, retreated to their country home in Norfolk.
“The Cambridge appear to be spending half-term at Amner as today I saw Prince Louis and Nanny enjoying the car museum at Sandringham,” a fan wrote on Twitter. She went on to explain that the sighting had been “such a surprise”.
“It was at the end of the museum times so I’m sure they had a lovely time playing in the royal cars, toy cars and fire engines by themselves,” she added.
The Sandringham Exhibition & Transport Museum located on the Sandringham Estate has a wide variety of extraordinary collections, from the biggest items, such as the 1939 Merryweather fire engine, to the tiniest, such as the tiny Indian doll dancers in the Curio Cupboard.
Visitors at the museum can also enjoy all the pearl and exotic hardwood gifts given to the Queen on state visits abroad, as well as some more personal items such as the clock used in the Royal Pigeon Lofts at Sandringham to time her Majesty’s racing pigeons.
No doubt the Cambridge children enjoyed the visit, even the now-walking Prince Louis, the youngest of the three. The exhibition also features the first ever motor car owned by a member of the royal family and other notable cars such as the Aston Martin DB007. The children went to the museum with their nanny Maria, as opposed to their parents Prince William and Kate, who would have no doubt enjoyed the visit with their three children.
Both Prince George and Princess Charlotte will return to their respective schools and nurseries on Monday.
