Kate Middleton and Prince William's getaway trip before UK lockdown rules on Thursday

Kate and William took their children away on a trip to the Isle of Sicily last week. The family rented a cottage for a low-key staycation just in time to avoid the new rules.

The trip took place over the half term holidays last week, according to The Sun.

This is the second holiday the Camrbridge’s have taken to the isles, the first being in July in Tresco.

At the time a local said: “We hardly noticed at first as they seemed a normal family on holiday intent on keeping themselves to themselves.”

“The place where they were staying was quite modest and certainly not hugely luxurious,” the source told The Sun.

“We couldn’t help thinking what the weather might be like in California — but it’s much better to be holidaying here in Britain.”

In the high season in summer it costs as much as £22,256 per week or £3,179 per day.

Over Christmas prices are even more eye-watering.

They cost £38,329 per week, or £5,475 per day.

Kate Middleton’s parenting shopping list was revealed by and it is rather pricey. 

The royal line of succession – who outranks who?

The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.

It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.

Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.

Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.

Prince Charles, 71, is currently second-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 38, his oldest son.

Then comes Prince William’s children, George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 35. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May 2019.
