Many families like to get away for the Easter weekend, but the coronavirus pandemic has affected the nation's plans this year. The royals are also on lockdown and it is believed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will remain at their country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk. Prince William and Kate have attended the Easter Sunday service at Windsor Castle with the Queen and other members of the royal family in the past, but this tradition has been cancelled this year, due to COVID-19.

WATCH: William and Kate surprise schoolchildren during video call

Last year, Prince William was spotted flying to Kensington Palace via helicopter to return to London for royal duties, suggesting the family were spending the Easter school holidays in Norfolk. The Cambridges usually reside at Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace during term time.

The couple's eldest children, Prince George, six, and Princess Charlotte, four, have been home-schooled since the end of March, when the UK lockdown was imposed. The royal youngsters attend Thomas's school in Battersea, west London, where George is in Year 2 and Charlotte started in the Reception class last September.
