    Prince William and Kate Middleton have decided to take a week off from royal duties, and they’ve timed it so that they can spend time with their children during the school holidays.

    It’s half term this week, meaning that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be enjoying a week off from school and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are making the most of it by taking some time off to make the most of the break.

    Prince George is currently in year one at Thomas’s Battersea, where he is learning everything from history to ballet, and Princess Charlotte is in her final year at Willcocks Nursery.

    It has been reported that the couple will take a break from royal business and may leave Kensington Palace, instead heading to Amner Hall in Norfolk with their three young children. It’s a getaway favourite for the family, who also chose to have their most recent Christmas card shoot on the country grounds.

    However, they could also opt for a more adventurous break. Back in 2016, the family flew to the French Alps for a skiing holiday and we were treated to some ridiculously cute snaps of them all wrapped up in the snow.

    Hopefully we get some more adorable pictures, whatever they decide to do!
