Prince William and Kate Are M.I.A. This Week for a Very Important Reason

Kate Middleton and Prince William are laying low this week (and, no, it's not because they weren't invited to Meghan's NYC baby shower).

The Cambridges are taking a break from all the public engagements, barbershop jokes and ombré pink Gucci gowns for a very important reason: to spend more quality time with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The two older sibs, George and Char, are out for their half-term break (and Louis is still too little for school at only 9 months old), so Kate and Will are staying out of the limelight, according to People. Charlotte, who attends London’s Willcocks Nursery, is out 'til next week. The same goes for George, who attends London's Thomas's Battersea school.

They may opt to stay in their London residence at Kensington Palace, or take time away from the big city to relax at their country home of Anmer Hall in Norfolk. Cheesy pasta making, new haircuts and helicopter test-drives are hopefully (probably) on the agenda for the kids' break from school.

And possibly figuring out when their first playdate with their future cousin, Baby Sussex, will be. (This second generation of the "fab four" is so epic, you guys.)
