Aside from an appearance to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Amiens in France earlier this week, Prince William and Kate Middleton will spend August month largely out of the public eye — and out of London. It’s the royals’ holiday month, and they have numerous trips planned with their kids Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
Hello! reports that William was seen traveling with the RAF Marham Norfolk to Amiens, which fueled speculation that the royal family is now at Anmer Hall. The 10-bedroom Norfolk country home on Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham estate was the couple's first home with the kids before moving to London’s Kensington Palace. Roughly 120 miles north of the city, it's a place the couple has previously summered, according to People. What do the couple love about Anmer? Perhaps that it's under a no-fly zone, giving the royal family more privacy.
Previously we reported that the family travelled to the Caribbean island of Mustique with Kate’s parents. Some royal watchers speculated that the couple would return home to attend friend Charlie van Straubenzee’s wedding this past Saturday. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did, but William and Kate did not.
People adds that the couple will make their annual trip with the kids to see the Queen at her Balmoral Castle estate in Scotland. All royal family members are expected to visit during the Queen’s 2-month stay there. Kate and William usually go in early September, but because George and Charlotte will start school again then, the trip will likely come sooner.
Kate has been on maternity leave this spring and summer but is expected to begin royal engagement again in the early autumn.
