Ah, to be a young royal. Kate Middleton and Prince William are vacationing with their kids at their Anmer Hall country house over fall break, which began on Thursday. They brought the whole gang: Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 18 months (as well as a host of staff, we’d wager), as the Observer reports.
The Cambridges headed to Anmer Hall to unwind, which is on Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham Estate, and not far from a local Sainsbury’s, where Kate reportedly purchased Halloween costumes for the kids recently, Charlotte and George in tow. She’s chill like that!
“They love going up to Anmer Hall where they’ll do normal things, like watch movies together, grill on the BBQ, play board games and have family football matches,” a source told Us Weekly of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. “Despite their background, William and Kate are incredibly down to earth.”
As for what they get up to at the country house, it sounds as though they’re pretty much like any other family — except, you know, royal. The Duke and Duchess try to give their kids a “normal” life, as the Sun reports, which sounds relatively impossible, but, hey, props for trying, guys.
“William and Kate have made sure that their three children are getting as normal a childhood as possible and they all love the outdoor life,” royal expert Phil Dampier told Fabulous Digital, as the Sun reports. “At Anmer Hall in Norfolk, they go for long walks in woods and have frequent trips to the beach.” See? Super chill.
Meanwhile, Kate’s ready for a fourth child. The Duchess “would love to have one more child,” the source told Us. “Personality-wise, [her kids are] very different. Charlotte’s extremely confident and loves attention, whereas George is more reserved, although he is starting to come out of his shell.” We’ll await that pregnancy announcement — any day now.
