The Cambridges return from their French family holiday

After a picturesque summer holiday in beautiful France, the Duke and Duchess have returned to the UK.

The royal couple and their two sweet kids allegedly touched down last week – just in time for William to return to his pilot duties with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Royal spotters speculate that the beloved family spent just over a week city hopping throughout the neighbouring country.

The family of four were first spotted touching down in a $15 million private Cessna plane at Pau-Pyrenees airport on Tuesday July 26, and it appears that their vacation only became more lavish from there.

Georgie loved the planes! Perhaps he’ll take after his daddy and become a pilot…

Upon their arrival, the royals were greeted by a full security detail, including royal protection officers and a group of Scotland Yard personnel, reports French outlets.

A second report from newspaper Sud Ouest claimed Prince William, Duchess Catherine and their two children, Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, one, then spent a night at the Hotel du Palais in the seaside town of Biarritz.

A deluxe double room in the five-star hotel, which was famously used as the imperial residence of Emperor Napoleon III, costs around $1043 per night.

The French countryside has always held a warm place in Kate and Wills’ hearts, as the couple took their first holiday as a family of four there earlier this year.

Back then, the 34-year-old parents had a ball with Charlotte and George, laughing and playing in the snow of the French Alps.

And while we’re sure the couple are feeling refreshed after some well-deserved time off, their feet won’t stay grounded for too long!

Last month, the well-travelled couple announced that they’ve accepted an invitation to visit Canada for their next royal tour.

The last time the family of four visited France, we got gorgeous snaps like this one.

This will be their second tour of the country, with the parents of two having visited previously in 2011.

Confirming the news, the palace tweeted: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Canada this autumn at the invitation of the Canadian Government. TRH hold very happy memories from their last visit to Canada in 2011 – their first overseas tour as a married couple.”

“The Duke and Duchess look forward to exploring more of Canada, from British Columbia to the territory of Yukon, when they return this autumn.”

The loving husband and wife share a fondness for the stunning country.

In a statement, Canadian Governor General David Johnston said, “Sharon and I will be delighted to welcome Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Canada.

“Their royal tour will take them to the beautiful province of British Columbia and the scenic territory of Yukon. Once again, our true Canadian pride and spirit will shine and be at the very heart of this visit so they can feel at home.”

Speculation has already mounted as to whether they’ll bring along their two children.

The brother and sister have been officially invited, but confirmation is yet to be received.

Will the couple be joined by Georgie and his sister Charlotte? Only time will tell!
