Prince William and Kate Middleton will leave lavish foreign holidays behind them as they prepare for their future roles within the royal family, an expert has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will one day be King and Queen – and it is predicted they will spend more time in the UK as a result.
Instead of heading abroad, the couple will have “traditional” stays at their Norfolk family residence Amner Hall and around the country.

She told the publication: “Summer holidays at Anmer are the perfect way for Kate and William to decompress.
“If there are royal engagements for them, they’ll be few and far between.
“While in the past we’ve seen the couple enjoy more lavish holidays skiing or visiting sunnier climates, they’ve been adopting a more traditional royal approach and spending their time at royal residences in the UK instead.”

She added: “This could obviously be the result of Covid travel restrictions but I also believe that Kate and William are transforming into the future King and Queen and therefore are adopting more traditional practices.”
“Both Kate and William were raised to love the outdoors. William spent many summers at Balmoral with the Queen and the family and embraced nature.
“Similarly, Kate spent her childhood playing outdoors so they have both wanted to raise their children a similar way.
“The children love making sandcastles on the beaches and Kate enjoys packing a picnic for them to eat. Sometimes they’ll stay within the grounds of Anmer and Kate will pitch a tent for the children in the garden.
“She’ll pack sandwiches for their lunch and sometimes they’ll light a campfire and toast marshmallows together in the evening.”
