How Will The Cambridge Children Spend Their Summer Vacation?

The Cambridge children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — wowed the crowds while front and center at Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee in June. In addition to standing on the royal balcony during Trooping the Colour, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's three children participated in the parade, which was the first time they rode in a carriage procession. As George, Charlotte, and Louis — riding along with their mother, Catherine Middleton, and step-grandmother, the Duchess of Cornwall — waved enthusiastically to the crowds lining the streets, cameras caught a funny moment where Charlotte stopped her younger brother's overzealous waving

Prince William and Kate have also been preparing their oldest son for his future role as king. Prince George has started accompanying his parents to events, including the Euro 2020 final at Wembley and the Wimbledon men's finals, where the young royal wore a suit and tie. "George is only just beginning to understand his destiny, but Kate has got the journey planned," Duncan Larcombe told OK! (via The Sun) As he starts to appear at public events in a royal capacity, the duchess is reportedly the one who insists on eight-year-old George wearing a suit. "She was showing George that being 'on duty' requires a different approach. He has to learn to don the royal armour."

However, that doesn't mean that George — and his siblings — aren't allowed to have plenty of fun. In fact, they seem to have an exciting summer planned.

The young royals will be spending plenty of time outdoors

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will likely take their three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis —  to Anmer Hall, their country home in Norfolk, so the family can spend plenty of time outside during the summer holiday. Kate even told the Happy Mum, Happy Baby podcast that she is happiest when "I'm with my family outside in the countryside and we're all filthy dirty."

She also opened up about how Prince George earns his allowance during school breaks by doing chores — specifically moving feed — on the family's farm, per Hello! It won't be all work for the Cambridge kids, though. The royals will most likely pay a visit to Scotland when Queen Elizabeth heads to Balmoral in late summer, and Kate and Prince William might also bring their children on trips "to the Isles of Scilly or the Lake District."

"[Kate] said that her children love coming here and walking in the fells," said Jack Mumberson, per People. "She told us how nice the Lake District was and how lucky we were to live so close to the mountains."

The Cambridges are also preparing for a big move, leaving Kensington Palace so they can reportedly live closer to the queen, who is at Windsor Castle. That means George, Charlotte, and Louis will be switching schools. In the meantime, though, they'll be enjoying their summer break!
