Prince William (36) and Duchess Kate (37) will not be attending any royal engagements this week as they are taking a very well-deserved break to spend more time as a family. Both Prince George (5) and Princess Charlotte (3) will be off school this week as it is the half-term holidays in Britain. Prince George is currently in year one at Thomas's Battersea Primary School, while Princess Charlotte attends Willcocks Nursery, but will be starting primary school later this year.

Are the Cambridges away skiing?

We're not sure exactly how the Cambridges have decided to spend half-term, but we're sure they are enjoying their time together. They often travel to their country home in Norfolk when they have time off, but they have also been known to go skiing at this time of year.

Kate and William know how to show the slopes who's boss and in 2016 they escaped to the French Alps for a winter vacation.Prince William learnt skiing from a young age and often hit the slopes with his brother, Prince Harry, and mother, Princess Diana.

Skiing might just be the perfect option this year as Prince George and Princess Charlotte are old enough to start learning the sport and Prince Louis is too young to care that he can't keep up with his older siblings yet!
