Kate Middleton and Prince William visit Pantoland with family
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, 38, and Prince William, 38, delighted royal fans on Friday when they stepped out for a special engagement in central London with all three of their children – Prince George, seven Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two. The Cambridge family attended a pantomime together at the London Palladium on the same day George and Charlotte broke up from school in time for the Christmas holidays.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte are both pupils at Thomas’s Battersea in South West London which is a short drive from the Cambridges’ London base at Kensington Palace.
During term time Kate and William are both known to do the school run and for arranging their schedules around dropping off and collecting George and Charlotte from school.
According to Thomas’s website, the Christmas term ended on December 11 which means George and Charlotte are now home until the New Year.
The Lent term is scheduled to start on January 6.

During the school holidays, the Cambridges usually leave the capital and relocate to their rural royal residence Anmer Hall.
The stately Norfolk home is where Kate, William and their children spent the first lockdown.
London is understood to be on the brink of entering Tier 3 restrictions with new measures due to be announced by Health Secretary Matt Hancock on Monday afternoon.
The Cambridges may seek to exit the capital ahead on the new measures coming into force.
Anmer Hall is just up the road from the Queen and Prince Philip’s Sandringham house residence where the Royal Family traditionally gathers for Christmas.
However, this year the gathering has been called off amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Instead of travelling to Norfolk, the Queen and the Duke will remain at Windsor Castle in Berkshire where they have spent both lockdowns.
How will William, Kate and their children spend Christmas?
William and Kate are yet to confirm their Christmas plans but are expected to mark the holiday in the countryside.

As Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have confirmed they will mark Christmas at Highgrove, William and Kate could bubble up with Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton.
The doting grandparents have helped William and Kate with childcare in the past and may be glad to see George, Charlotte and Louis as restrictions are relaxed later this month.
From December 23 to 27 Britons will be able to bubble-up with up to three households.
Kate’s mother Carole runs a children’s party planning business called Party Pieces and earlier this month dropped a huge hint about one Christmas tradition she may observe with her grandchildren.
In a Party Pieces Instagram post, Carole suggested an ingenious way young cousins kept apart by Covid could still enjoy Christmas together.
The post read: “Christmas Eve has always been a special occasion for my family.
“Children get sweetly excited by the idea that Father Christmas is coming, and really want to give him something – and he’ll really appreciate our new Christmas Eve sets and boxes.
“If you’re planning a virtual Christmas, cousins in different households might enjoy organising their goodies for Santa together over a video call. Yours, Carole.”
While Kate and William won’t mark Christmas Day with the Queen they could take George, Charlotte and Louis to see their great-grandparents in the days after Christmas.
The Cambridge family could enjoy a socially-distanced walk with the Queen and Philip in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
