As the royal family’s official mourning period following the death of Queen Elizabeth has come to an end, many royals have been seen out and about on royal engagements. However, the Prince and Princess of Wales have been staying out of the public eye—and for a very relatable reason.
Where are William and Kate?
Over the past few days, both Prince William and Kate Middleton were absent from official duties. Middleton’s last known royal duty was sending a letter of encouragement to the England Rugby League, wishing them luck before the World Cup. The princess is a patron for the league.

William has kept a low profile as well, so many are curious about what the young royals are doing. The reason the couple has been so absent from public life is their children.
The Family Takes Two Weeks off
The pair took two weeks off for the children’s school break. William and Middleton have Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte (7), and Prince Louis (4). All three kids attend Lambrook School, which is close to the family’s new home at Windsor.
It’s unknown what the family have planned for the school break, but the close-knit crew will definitely be spending lots of quality time together. The Prince and Princess of Wales, although they are highly-ranking royals, still manage to spend time with their children. This creates a normal home life for young royals.
Middleton and William both spoke about the things their children enjoy doing, such as helping in the kitchen or playing videogames. It seems like the trio’s favorite thing to do is play outside.

When will William return to work?
Despite taking time off for the kids’ break from school, William will have to cut his vacation short. Kensington Palace announced that William would return to work on November 1, when he will attend 10th annual Tusk Conservation Awards.
The statement was as follows, “The Prince of Wales will celebrate the work of leading Africa-based conservationists at the annual Tusk Conservation Awards to be held next month at Hampton Court Palace. His Royal Highness will also join a symposium the next morning bringing together this year’s award winners, alumni from previous awards and conservation experts.”
The Prince and Princess are just like other parents. They know how important it can be to spend some time with their children and take a break from work. Whether the family jets off on a vacation or just spends some downtime at home, they’re sure to have a great time together!
