The Royal FamilyThey have spent the last two days supporting Great Britain at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, but William and Kate can look forward to a well-deserved month off in August.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have cleared their diaries and will be holidaying in the U.K., Royal Watch can reveal. William and Kate usually jet off to the private island of Mustique, but they are planning to stay a little closer to home this summer.
Sources say they will be taking Prince George to Scotland next month to Charles and Camilla, at their Highland home, and they will also take Prince George to see the Queen and Prince Philip at Balmoral. According to my sources, the couple will spend the rest of the time off in Norfolk, where the final refurbishments are being completed at their new country home, Anmer Hall, on the Queen's Sandringham Estate.
Kate has been hands-on with the renovations and has helped with the redesign and interiors, and is apparently keen to make sure the final touches go exactly as planned. "They will be at Anmer for much of the time they have off," a source revealed to Royal Watch. "They cannot wait to move in and they want to make sure the last stages of the refurb go to plan.
