The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge can look forward to some quality family time as their eldest children Prince George and Princess Charlotte break up from school for the October half-term. 

The royal siblings are halfway through their first term back at Thomas's Battersea after being homeschooled during lockdown.

Prince William and Kate have been incredibly busy with their royal duties of late so they can look forward to a break in routine from the school run.

HELLO! takes a look at what the Cambridges could get up to during the autumn school holidays.

Anmer Hall

The Duke and Duchess typically spend their children's school holidays at their country home Anmer Hall in Norfolk. The family-of-five took the decision to leave London as the UK went into lockdown in early March and returned to Kensington Palace in time for the new school year in September.

We know that William and Kate love the outdoor life, with the Duke recently revealing that George is like a "caged animal" if he doesn't spend time outside.

Last year, Kate stunned shoppers when she was spotted browsing Halloween costumes with George and Charlotte in the Hardwick branch of Sainsbury's in King's Lynn, close to their home.

We wonder if William and Kate will organise a mini Halloween party for the five of them this year?!

The Duchess usually always finds fun activities for her children to do during the school holidays and she took George, Charlotte and two-year-old Prince Louis for an afternoon of pottery painting at Mable's Paint Pot in King's Lynn over the summer.

The Duchess is close to her parents Carole and Michael Middleton, who live in a seven-bedroom Grade II-listed Georgian property in Berkshire.

Bucklebury Manor's surrounding estate covers 18 acres so there's plenty of space for a socially distanced family visit.

Kate's younger brother James Middleton and his fiancée Alizee Thevenet spent lockdown living with Carole and Michael in Berkshire, with James sharing peeks into his family's stunning home on Instagram throughout.

The Cambridges could decide to take a staycation together after enjoying a family trip on the Isles of Scilly in July, where William holidayed as a child.

Kate also revealed during an engagement in Keswick, Cumbria last year that she and William had taken George, Charlotte and Louis on a trip to the Lake District during May half-term in 2019.
