The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have gone off on holiday for the half terms, of course along with their three young royals Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
We aren’t quite sure where they’re headed, but they’ve been spotted at Heathrow airport so it’s likely they’ve gone south for a warmer climate. In the photos taken on Thursday, the royals can be seen unloading their car outside the airport. Prince William drove the family to the Heathrow airport in a blacked-out Audi closely escorted by security and their nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.
However, not all is sunny for the royals as there are a couple of factors that may just make this particular holiday quite unique.
No doubt that the Queen won’t be leaving the back of their minds after the 95-year-old monarch has recently spent the night in hospital, specifically King Edward VII Hospital in London, after she “reluctantly accepted medical advice to rest” and cancelled a trip to Northern Ireland.
While this has been her only admission in eight years, she was also seen quite recently using a walking cane for the first time in 17 years during an outing with Princess Royal.
The other quite large elephant in the room is the ongoing pandemic as we believe this is the first time the Cambridges have travelled abroad since the virus began to spread and while restrictions in the UK have eased (1metre required social distancing and the encouragement of face masks in crowded places are the only rules that remain), they are more strict in many other regions and countries.
The royals will be required to wear their masks and if they, for example, have travelled to Mustique, where they celebrated Prince George’s sixth birthday in 2019, they would be required to undergo a 48-hour isolation period and mandatory COVID tests.
