Prince William and Kate Middleton’s half-term holiday interrupted by royal duties

Prince William and Kate Middleton have been enjoyed a well-deserved break for their royal duties, but have put their family holiday on the back-burner for a short while, in order to highlight a new important initiative.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge jetted off for a half-term break with their children last week, and were spotted at Heathrow airport prior to their departure.

William, 39, and Kate, also 39, have ensure that Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, made the most of their time off from education, as term starts again for both the eldest children on November 1.

After pulling up at the airport, the family went straight to Heathrow's very lavish Windsor Suite, where its guests receive only the best treatment.

OK! previously revealed that VIP treatment is given at the Windsor Suite by almost 100 staff, and its previous attendees have ranged from A-List celebrities to heads of state.

The airport suite will set its guests back a hefty £3,300, but it includes the likes of a personal butler, a menu designed by a Michelin-starred chef and even a portrait of the Queen – how fitting!

Their nanny Maria Borrallo also joined the Cambridges for their trip away, but the destination of their family holiday is unknown.

Wills and Kate are famed for not splashing out on lavish holidays, and typically keep their breaks within Europe.

It's believed they've only left the UK once since the coronavirus pandemic hit, and it was to attend Kate's brother James' wedding to partner Alizée Thevenet.

Wherever the family are, they've undoubtedly been unwinding and taking a step back from the pressures of royal duties for a few days.

However, earlier today the couple broke their silence on social media, shortly interrupting their holiday in order to highlight an important new initiative they've been working with.

Writing from the Kensington Royal account, Kate and William re-Tweeted a post from Young Minds UK, a leading UK charity for youth mental health.

The original Tweet read: "We’re proud to announce the launch of Bayo, a platform providing information about initiatives, communities and mental health services created by and for the Black community – all in one place."

Bayo is a phrase from the Yoruba origin which means "joy has found us", and the new initiative will support mental health and wellbeing within the black community.

Kate and William wrote alongside their re-Tweet: "Bayo is a brilliant new initiative from The Ubele Initiative and Heads Together partners!

"@MindCharity, @YoungMindsUK and @bestbeginnings are bringing their mental health resources, communities and services for the Black community together in one place."

The royals shared their support for the new initiative, as they have always been huge advocated for better mental health support.

The couple launched the Heads Together mental health initiative back in 2016 alongside Prince Harry's Royal Foundation.
