Kate Middleton’s stay with her parents is apparently over after the Duchess took her baby home to North Wales to be with Prince William, who has returned to his military duty.
The Daily Mail reports that the Duke of Cambridge, known in the military as Flight Lieutenant Wales, has resumed his duty as a rescue helicopter pilot in Anglesey, an island which has provided William and Kate’s “first home together.”
Earlier it was reported that Kate, along with Prince George, will stay for another six months at her parents' mansion in Bucklebury, where she has been staying since the birth of the royal baby on 22 July. However, the new mother appears likely to reunite with her husband earlier than expected.
Kate’s mother Carole Middleton has also joined the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and baby George in Wales, providing an extra help for Kate to bring up the royal baby.
It is reported that Carole is the only person who can get Prince George to go to sleep, and William and Kate are “immensely grateful” to her.
Prince William in the meantime has attended the Anglesey Show, where he shared his experience of being a father and spoke about the little prince, whose official royal portrait is expected to be released this week.
"I have to say that I thought search and rescue duties over Snowdonia were physically and mentally demanding, but looking after a three-week-old baby is up there,” said the 31-year-old Duke, adding: “Catherine is sorry that she cannot be here today at the County Show, but she and George would have loved to have been here. He's pretty loud but of course very good looking!”
The royal family’s stay at Anglesey comes to an end in September with the end of William’s search and rescue tour of duty. Reports suggest they will stay in their new country house, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, so that Kate can spend more time alone with Prince George.
The Cambridges' city residence, a 57-room 'apartment' at Kensington Palace, is currently being renovated at a reported cost of £1m.
