  • Kate Middleton and Prince William cleared their schedules for half term, so they could spend more time with their little ones.

    Princess Charlotte and Prince George are currently on a week off from school, and it seems like they’re in a for a very special few days of family fun.

    According to Hello!, the Cambridges have left London to go to a very special location that’s close to their hearts – Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

    The 10-bedroom country home that was gifted to them by the Queen is William and Kate’s top choice when it comes to where they spend the school holidays.

    They went there for half term a year ago – just a few weeks after Prince Louis was born – where they spotted at Houghton Horse Trials.

    Over the Easter holidays earlier this year, the family were even spotted at the Burnham Horse Trials, spending a fun day out with Mike and Zara Tindall and their daughters Mia and Lena.

    With a swimming pool, tennis court and gorgeous gardens, the property is also on a no-fly zone so they can have plenty of privacy to relax.

    Kate has previously said how it’s the simple moments as a family she cherishes the most.

    In a letter supporting children’s hospitals and charities, the duchess wrote: ‘Spending quality time together is such an important aspect of family life and for me, as a mother, it is the simple family moments like playing outside together that I cherish.’

    The mum-of-three has also been trying to raise awareness about the importance of spending times outdoors for good physical and mental health.

    Kate recently helped designed a woodland garden at Chelsea Flower Show, a space for families and communities to connect with nature.

    She said in an interview with gardener Monty Don for the BBC: ‘I really feel that nature and being interactive outdoors has huge benefits on our physical and mental wellbeing, particularly for young children.

    ‘I really hope that this woodland that we have created inspires families, kids and communities to get outside, enjoy nature and the outdoors, and spend quality time together.’
