LAST spring, Kate Middleton gave a rare glimpse into life at home with three kids during lockdown. “The children have got such stamina,” she said of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. At the time, Kate and Prince William were more hands-on than ever as they juggled their royal duties with homeschooling their little ones. “You pitch a tent, take the tent down again, cook, bake,” said the Duchess of Cambridge. “You get to the end of the day — they’ve had a lovely time, but it’s amazing how much you can cram into a day!”

This summer is especially busy with George, 7, Charlotte, 6, and Louis, 3, on holiday in July and August.

Charlotte is already taking horse-riding lessons, and George is eager to start learning how to play polo like his dad. “There’s a local farm with stables just down the road, and that’s where they go,” reveals the insider. “Louis can’t ride yet, but he loves sitting on the ponies and going for walks around the arena.”
