Although it is not exactly known how the Cambridges will spend the holidays, it is likely that they will all head to their country house in Sandringham, Anmer Hall. The royals regularly stay on the Queen's Estate during the children's school holidays, where they can escape the hustle and bustle of London and enjoy more low-key outings.It seems to be the ideal place for the next month full of celebrations.
