Kate Middleton seems to be making the most out of her fragile post-lockdown freedom. On September 24, she played a game of doubles with 2021 U.S. Open women’s singles champ Emma Raducanu. The entire Cambridge clan has also been spending time away from home, much to the delight of pub patrons who spotted the royals out in the wild at an undisclosed eatery in Norfolk.
The Sun shared a photo of the family seated outdoors at a picnic table. They reportedly laughed a lot as they chowed down on classic pub fare: burgers and chips. “It was amazing to see how down-to-earth the family were,” an eyewitness said. There was reportedly no security in sight, and their outing was relatively drama-free until “one of the children got upset because their food was too hot.” Luckily, dad came to the rescue. “William was so fast to reassure them and sort them out. It was fantastic to see,” the eyewitness continued.
It’s not out of the ordinary for Will, Kate, and their kids to enjoy lowkey outings together. According to The Sun, the family blends in with other vacationers during their summer treks to the Isles of Scilly, where they stay in “modest” accommodations. “We hardly noticed at first as they seemed a normal family on holiday intent on keeping themselves to themselves,” said one visitor who spotted the Cambridges there in 2020.
