Kate Middleton usually spends Easter at Windsor Castle with Queen Elizabeth and other senior members of the royal family. But with the world currently dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, the royal family is handling Easter a little differently this year. How is Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, celebrating Easter with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis?
Where are Kate Middleton and Prince William staying for Easter?
The royal family is doing its part to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus by working from home. While Queen Elizabeth is shacking up at Windsor Castle, Prince William and Kate are hunkering down at their country estate, Anmer Hall.
With schools shut down and the country under lockdown, Kate has
been homeschooling her two oldest for the past few weeks. She has also been
working alongside several charities to help those in need amid the pandemic.
Kate Middleton is a big advocate of getting outside and being active, so it is safe to assume that her three children are spending a lot of time outdoors. And when it comes to the Easter holiday, there is little doubt that Kate has something creative planned for George, Charlotte, and Louis.
How is Kate planning to celebrate Easter?
In a normal year, Kate spends Easter at Windsor Castle and starts
the day off with a big Easter egg hunt near St. George’s Chapel. According to Hello
Magazine, Kate will likely follow that tradition this year, only the
hunt won’t take place at Windsor Castle.
Instead, Kate Middleton will probably hide eggs for her kiddos on
the grounds of Anmer Hall. We do not know what the family will do after the
hunt is over, as attending church is out of the question due to the pandemic.
Given the circumstances, there is a strong chance that Kate will video message other members of the royal family who would normally be around for Easter. This includes Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, and Camilla Parker Bowles, all of home are practicing social distancing at this time.
Easter is set for April 12 this year, which is only a week away
from Queen Elizabeth’s 94th birthday. Louis, meanwhile, is also set to turn two
years old on April 23.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge offer their support for Queen
Although Prince William and Kate Middleton have kept to
themselves in recent weeks, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently
expressed their support for Queen Elizabeth on social media. The couple
encouraged their followers to watch Her Majesty’s historic coronavirus speech
and included a quote from her address for good measure.
take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will
return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again;
we will meet again,’”
William and Kate captioned the post. “Her Majesty The Queen has addressed
the UK and Commonwealth in a special broadcast recorded at Windsor Castle —
visit @TheRoyalFamily to watch in full.”
In her speech, Queen Elizabeth praised frontline workers for their dedication to helping the sick and risking their own lives. She also took pride in how the British people are handling the social distancing measures and is hopeful that they would eventually overcome the crisis.
The address comes following Charles’ positive test for the
coronavirus. The Prince of Wales has since been released from self-isolation
and is in better health after suffering from mild symptoms.
Inside Kate Middleton’s parenting plan
While we hope to learn more about Kate’s Easter plans, an inside
source recently told The
Sun that she is planning on giving her children a down-to-earth
upbringing. The source claims that Kate has always wanted to give her three
kids the “Enid Blyton” childhood, which includes plenty of outdoor
“Kate is giving her children the Enid Blyton ‘Famous Five’ life that she always wanted for
them,” the insider dished. “She ensures their lives are outdoorsy and
full of tree climbing, swimming, making dens, growing their own flowers and
vegetables, team games, dog walking.”
With Kate and William currently staying at their country home,
she certainly has plenty of opportunities to give her children the life she has
always wanted for them.
As far as George, Charlotte, and Louis are concerned, the insider
noted that they are loving their freedom and enjoy playing in the gardens. They
also like birdwatching and taking dips in the pond.
Prince William and Kate Middleton have not commented on their Easter plans. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will likely remain at Anmer Hall until the coronavirus pandemic is under control.
