After months of endless public appearances and royal duties, Prince William and Kate Middleton are taking the much needed break from their usual routine. The royal couple is scheduled to be heading to Belgium with Prince Harry for World War I commemorations next Monday and then they are set for their month-long vacation until September.
Aside from relaxing and getting away from too much speculations involving Kate's second pregnancy, the pair plans to visit Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles. The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall didn't manage to attend Prince George's first birthday which fueled a lot of rumours that Kate Middleton is not in good terms with Camilla.
Another stop for the couple's vacation itinerary is visit Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at Balmoral after spending some quite time in Norfolk. "They will be at Anmer for much of the time they have off," said the royal source in an interview with Vanity Fair. "They cannot wait to move in and they want to make sure the last stages of the refurb go to plan."
Anmer Hall is complete with its own tennis court and swimming pool - perfect for the couple and their little bundle of joy to spend some quality time. Prince George, who recently been enjoying swimming lessons will surely love his 10-bedroom country house. Kate also revealed recently that her little prince loves splashing about in the water.
Now, the Cambridges are slamming rumours about their relationship to Camilla and plans to visit her and Prince Charles as their Highland home. Like a doting grandmother the duchess picked up a present for her grandson during her recent visit at Queen's Norfolk estate and picked up a knitted chimney sweep doll for the one-year-old prince.
Together with Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith, Charles and Camilla stopped at the Women's Institute where they were greeted by many well-wishers and were presented with posy of flowers. About 20,000 people attended the horticultural show just to catch a glimpse of the royals where the viewed vegetables, fruit and flowers entries and even met some of the event's exhibitors.
