  • It's August, meaning all senior members of the royal family are enjoying a quiet month off from their usual engagements, as they do at this time every year.

    And the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have certainly been making the most of the time off from their duties – having recently returned from a holiday in the exclusive private island of Mustique.

    The couple and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and baby Prince Louis, jetted off to the luxury isle a few weeks back, and whilst there, the Duke and Duchess enjoyed a special date night together at a bar.

    Now, the family are back in the UK – but they won’t be returning to full royal duties for some weeks yet.

    So where are they spending the last few weeks of their time off? Well, according to one fan, the Cambridge family have retreated to their country mansion, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.

    Twitter user Cepe Smith revealed that the family are likely staying there at the moment, as Prince William recently arrived at the annual Amiens ceremony from RAF Markham Norfolk, an airbase just 30 minutes drive from his country home.

    While the Cambridge family officially live at Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace, they like to spend as much time at their Anmer Hall home as possible.

    Prince William and Catherine actually lived at Anmer for around five years after welcoming Prince George, and so largely brought up their son and Princess Charlotte there.

    Last September, the family moved back to London however, in order for George to start nursery, and for the couple to take on more royal duties in support of the Queen.

    So this trip will likely be their newborn son Prince Louis’ first trip to Anmer Hall, since his birth back in April.

    The couple are said to love the peace, quiet and privacy their Norfolk home affords them – so it’s no surprise that they hurry back there whenever they get the chance.

    But the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aren’t the only royals who have retreated to the countryside during the summer months.

    The Queen has officially taken up residence at Balmoral Castle for the whole of August. The monarch is said to love the tranquility of the idyllic, rural Scottish residence – and heads there at this time every year.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also retreated from the spotlight to their lavish country home in the Cotswolds. Reportedly, the pair recently signed a two-year lease on a property in the exclusive Great Tew Estate near the popular celebrity town of Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire.

    It’s said that the couple are using the bolthole to escape from the intense media attention on them at the moment – and to unwind from an undeniably busy few months.

    It’s thought that the royals will be back to work in September, where they will once again be out and about on royal duties.
