The Cambridges are one of the most talked-about families in the world, but while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spend the most time in front of the cameras, it’s their children that really steal the limelight.

From Prince George's recent Wimbledon appearance and Princess Charlotte's Commonwealth debut, to of course Prince Louis' hilarious Platinum Party facial expressions, the Cambridge children have been all anyone can talk about.

With school broken up, there are rumours of a summer holiday for the Cambridges, with private island Mustique thought to be the most likely destination.

According to royal experts however, these kinds of trips won't happen for much longer, with the family reportedly starting to opt for more traditional holidays - preparing for their roles as King and Queen.

This is something royal expert Katie Nicholl opened up about to OK! Magazine.

"While in the past we’ve seen the couple enjoy more lavish holidays skiing or visiting sunnier climates, they’ve been adopting a more traditional royal approach and spending their time at royal residences in the UK instead," Nicholl explained. "This could obviously be the result of Covid travel restrictions but I also believe that Kate and William are transforming into the future King and Queen and therefore are adopting more traditional practices."

Adding to Nicholl's point, the family of five have become regulars at Balmoral, the Queen's Scottish residence, over the summer months.

In fact, Kate and William are such regular additions that they even have their own house on the Balmoral estate, Tam-Na-Ghar.

Will the Duke and Duchess change their travel habits as they prepare to be King and Queen? Only time will tell.
