Kate Middleton and Prince William have scrapped extravagant holidays in a sign they are "transforming into the future King and Queen", a royal expert has said.

After trips abroad in previous years, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will this year have a "traditional" break at their Norfolk family residence, Amner Hall, with their three children: Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, OK! reports.

In 2019 the family are reported to have spent two weeks at a £27,000-a-week villa in Mustique, a private island in the Caribbean.

But this year it has been reported that the couple also enjoyed a rather "modest" UK holiday in Cornwall recently.

According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, the shift marks the couples' new "traditional" approach to family holidays which will be filled with outdoor activities – with Katie adding that the break is also the perfect chance for Kate and Wills to wind down after a busy few months.

Katie told OK!: "Summer holidays at Anmer are the perfect way for Kate and William to decompress. If there are royal engagements for them, they’ll be few and far between.

"While in the past we’ve seen the couple enjoy more lavish holidays skiing or visiting sunnier climates, they’ve been adopting a more traditional royal approach and spending their time at royal residences in the UK instead."

She added: "This could obviously be the result of Covid travel restrictions but I also believe that Kate and William are transforming into the future King and Queen and therefore are adopting more traditional practices."

The expert said that there are lots of coastal and forest walks for the family to get stuck into in Norfolk and that they'll enjoy lots of family time together during the exciting trip.

She added: "The children love making sandcastles on the beaches and Kate enjoys packing a picnic for them to eat.

"Sometimes they’ll stay within the grounds of Anmer and Kate will pitch a tent for the children in the garden.

"She’ll pack sandwiches for their lunch and sometimes they’ll light a campfire and toast marshmallows together in the evening."

Speaking to The Sun, an anonymous tourist described the family in Cornwall as seeming like "a normal family on holiday intent on keeping themselves to themselves".

The accommodation the Royal clan chose was also said to be "quite modest and certainty not highly luxurious".
