Royal Now To Love

Kate Middleton and Prince William have had a very busy few months, but it looks like they're about to take some much needed R&R as their holiday plans emerge.
'Just when you thought you couldn't get any more envious of your pals currently enjoying a European vacation, Kate Middleton and Prince William are here to make things that much tougher. Indeed after a hectic few months of public engagements galore, the couple are now about to do something completely different. And for royal fans, this means something we'll be having some very mixed feelings about. According to a new report from Hello! , William and Kate have now officially kicked off their summer holiday, meaning they will take a short break from their royal duties over the remainder of July and August. And while we're glad the parents will be taking some much needed R&R with their three adorable children, there's still a chance we might see Kate and Wills sporadically. Indeed Hello! reports the pair are expected to attend the King's Cup Sailng Regetta, which takes place in Cowes on Friday, August 9. The pair are expected to attend given their patronages for the sport, and with both being keen sailors themselves, it's an event they'll no doubt take in their stride! And if you were wondering about the three cutest members of the Cambridge family, there's also a chance we'll be seeing them too. In fact, Prince George's birthday will take place next week on July 22. As per the tradition we've come to know and love from team Cambridge, we can likely expect to see some brand new pictures of the future King to be released on the day. Much like Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis' birthdays earlier this year, we might even see some photography of George taken by his talented mother, Kate. In September, Princess Charlotte has her own exciting milestone to celebrate - she'll be starting school. Another moment we'll all be excited to see take place. How will Kate and William spend their holiday? Over the next month or so, it's expected the Cambridges will spend time between their country home in Norfolk, and potentially in other places around Europe. In the past, the Cambridge's have spent time in the Caribbean where they've travelled to Mustique, a private Island. While it's unclear if they will go back again this year, it would be safe to assume they've got some exciting summer activities in store!

Royal Now To Love

As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their seats at the Men's Singles Grand Final, Duchess Catherine was gifted with a little present for Prince Louis by one of America's finest tennis players.
'He may be a bit too young to sit in the royal box, but Prince Louis was not forgotten at this year's Wimbledon tournament. As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their seats at the Men's Singles Grand Final, Duchess Catherine was gifted with a little present for her youngest child by one of America's finest tennis players. Former tennis world champion Stan Smith was snapped handing the Duchess of Cambridge a pair of tiny white tennis shoes with \'Prince Louis\' emblazoned across them in gold that had also been signed by the tennis star himself. This time 47 years ago, Stan was crowned winner at Wimbledon and was welcomed into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1987. We can already imagine the cheeky royal running around Kensington Palace in his new kicks! Prince Louis may not be big enough to swing a tennis racket at this stage, but his older brother George was lucky enough to score a personal tennis lesson from Grand Slam champ Roger Federer. The eldest Cambridge child practised his swing at his maternal grandparents' home in Bucklebury, Berkshire and according to Fed, George has \'good tennis technique\'. Speaking about his royal student, the Swiss tennis star said, \'At that stage it's all about just touch the ball, it's already good. Same with my boys. I think I have a little advantage that I actually spent some time, you know, with him.\' Dressed in a powder blue Emilia Wickstead dress, Duchess Catherine accompanied her husband Prince William to the men's finals to watch Novak Djokovic's nail-biting match against Roger Federer. They weren't the only famous faces in the crowd, the Duchess of Cambridge's mother Carole Middleton, sister Pippa, brother James and his girlfriend Alizee Thevenet were also in attendance. As Patron of The All England Lawn Tennis Club, this was the royal mother-of-three's third visit to the tournament this year.
