Inside the royal summer holidays – how relatable Kate Middleton keeps the kids entertained for their 10-week break | The Sun

MILLIONS of families across the UK will be finding ways to keep kids entertained over the summer holidays – and the royal family are no different.

Kate Middleton and Prince William will certainly have their hands full this summer looking after Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four.

Thankfully the Duchess of Cambridge has some tricks up her sleeve for keeping her kids busy in the holidays, when they aren’t at their £19k-a-year Thomas’s Battersea school.

This summer may also be particularly busy for the family who are reportedly preparing to move to a house on the Queen's Windsor estate.

Until now, the recently refurbished Adelaide Cottage was understood to be the family's first choice when they move from London to Berkshire.

But there is sure to be lots of fun planned for the royal kids too.

Royal editor Ingrid Seward told Fabulous: “Kate and William are fortunate enough to have a huge choice for their children’s summer holidays.

“The UK is their oyster at this age and they lack for nothing.”

Here is how Kate creates an action-packed summer for her adorable kids…

Anmer Hall

When they aren’t spending time in their Kensington Palace home, Kate and William like to take their kids to their 10-bedroom country home in Norfolk.

Ingrid explained: “They have their own home, Anmer Hall which the children call home and keep all their small animals.

“They can take advantage of everything Sandringham has to offer, including wonderful beaches and miles of paths through the estate to ride on ponies or bikes. 

“They also have a tennis court and every amenity they can possibly have including lots of local friends.”

Perhaps Princess Charlotte will also kick around a football with her brothers, after sending a message to the England Lionesses alongside dad Prince William ahead of the victorious Euro final.

She showed off her footie skills back in 2019 as she played with Prince George at the polo.

Kate previously said her kids love going spider-hunting and also raise chickens at Anmer Hall.

Sailing trips

The Cambridges regularly talk about their love for sports and being competitive, and Kate is said to be getting her kids into sailing.

Ingrid said: “Kate has recently been taking them for sailing lessons and on a recent trip to Tresco in the Scilly Islands where they go every summer, they bike all over the island and can go shopping in the local stores and out on boats, which was exactly how William and Harry spent part of their summer when they were children.”

Quality time with their Middleton grandparents

George, Charlotte and Louis are lucky to not only have hands-on parents, but also doting grandparents.

Ingrid said: “They also have very amenable grandparents in the Middletons.”

She added that Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael, have enough money to “rent a villa almost anywhere in the world should they want to and take the grandchildren”.

The royal expert added: “Or they also have every amenity in their own Bucklebury home.”

Doting nan Carole even brings the tots to work at the Middletons’ family business, Party Pieces, where the kids like to pretend they run the company.

Royal expert Phil Dampier told Fabulous: "Carole has taken the kids to Party Pieces and they played shopkeeper there with all the stock.

"Prince George goes out a lot with his grandmother Carole. They go to the beach there and they are very close."

The young royals are also said to like playing games at the party supply company and are frequently treated to sweets and chips.


It is tradition for the royal family to head to Scotland for a visit over the summer period, and the Queen typically goes every year.

Ingrid continued: “They have Balmoral which all the children love. 

“They go every year and either stay at the castle with the Queen or with their grandfather Prince Charles in nearby Birkhall. 

“There the kids will fish, shoot rabbits and Prince George will learn how to stalk up on the hill with his father.

“The kids love all these outdoor activities and it is important they do as one day they will have to upkeep the royal estates.

“William and Harry loved Balmoral more than anywhere on earth and probably still do as it is a magical place. 

“Diana hated it because of the incessant rain and midges, but if the weather is good there is nowhere better.”

Time with friends

Kate is known to be down-to-earth when it comes to meeting parents at the kids’ school, Thomas’s Battersea, and even goes to pub drinks.

So it comes as no surprise that she also encourages her kids hanging out with their pals.

Ingrid said: “They can also go away with their friends, but there is always the problem of security so it is easier if they have their friends to stay with them rather than the other way around.”
