Gasp! Kate Middleton and Prince William were recently spotted taking their kids on vacation, but while doing so, they broke royal protocol.
The family of five was seen traveling together in one aircraft or vehicle, which doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you're in the royal family, it's recommended not to should an accident occur. If something were to happen, the lineage would be messed up.
According to a source, Queen Elizabeth gets the last word on whether families can fly together, but it seems like the Cambridges can!
Kate, William, and their three kids, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, were spotted at Heathrow airport on Thursday, where they were joined by their nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo. It's unclear where they are jetting off to.
Earlier this summer, the pair took their tots to the scenic coast of Norfolk, England, where they got to engage in some water activities.
"They are very much a family of sailors now," a source said. "Kate has always been a competent sailor and William’s pretty good too. They have enjoyed some wonderful time on the coast this summer sailing and showing the children how to steer and sail a boat."
According to the insider, the children "love the water and the two eldest are good swimmers and had no qualms about jumping into the sea even if it was a bit fresh."
"The kids were all running in and out of the water with their dog and spent hours playing in the sand," added the onlooker. "They are clearly a family that love being outdoors and in nature. It was lovely to see them playing so freely and not being bothered by anyone."
Kate, William and the kids were also in Scotland, too. "They always enjoy going up to Balmoral, they love the outdoors and walking in the hills and spending quality time with family," an insider said. "It’s where William spent a lot of his childhood and it’s important to him that his children experience what he did as a young boy."
