Time for some rest and relaxation: Kate Middleton and Prince William's children are on holiday this week, and predictions are circulating about how Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis are spending their half-term break.
• While schools in U.K. are closed, royal experts speculate that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will whisk their little ones off to the countryside.
• Having wrapped up their mini-tour of Scotland, Kate and William should be able to put their own duties aside while the youngsters are off.
• In other royal news, the story of the royal family's rescue dog Roxy will melt your heart.
Anyone fancy a staycation with a Royal seal of approval?
Schools across the United Kingdom are on half-term break - a week taken in the middle of each semester - and royal experts believe that Kate Middleton and Prince William will make full use of the time off. Having finished up a mini tour of Scotland at the end of May, the duo is expected to spend their downtime at Anmer Hall in the country, according to People.
The house is in Norfolk, in the east of England. The county, which is largely rural and has a beautiful coastline, is a popular place for Brits to holiday: this is one instance of the couple following a trend rather than setting one. Tour operators in Norfolk say demand for places to stay is currently outstripping demand.
Recently, their country home has been of major interest to those of us who are royally obsessed. In Kate and Will's 10-year anniversary video, the couple gave onlookers a glimpse of family life in the countryside: running in the gardens, playing on the beach and toasting marshmallows in a campfire.
"Thank you to everyone for the kind messages on our wedding anniversary," they said in an Instagram caption. "We are enormously grateful for the 10 years of support we have received in our lives as a family."

Kate is fond of outdoor activities, Princess Charlotte loves to horseback ride and Prince Louis is a big fan of his scooter—we'd assume that they're trying to spend as much time out and about as possible.
"She wants them to get fresh air and be in nature," royal expert Katie Nicholl told OK! "She loves to pick vegetables with them in the gardens. If they are learning about rivers or the sea, she and William try to incorporate that into their walks."
Whatever they're up to, we're sitting here hoping for some cute Instagram cameos.
