Actually the two royal families the BRF are very close to are the Norwegian and the Greek royal families. They have very close links, and meet often, but privately and outside the public gaze.

Yeah; I meant the Cambridges specifically since IIRC Princess Anne is also CP Haakon's godmother. I've read that HM is also friends with King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain as well as the DRF and Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands, though it'd be nice for the younger generation to bond with their European counterparts too - I'm sure they've met each other outside of official engagements due to the older royal's closeness with them, but IIRC the Cambridges themselves haven't actually spent much time with the NRF that we know of.

I remember when Charles and Camilla were visiting Sweden there was some surprise when the King noted in his speech that Queen Silvia had been at Highgrove very recent (to the visit). My point being no one knew such a visit had happened so we never really know what goes on in private

Of course. It's evident that there'll be private visits for a reason because, well, they're private - and we won't know about them unless a situation like this comes up and either royal mentions them.

The BRF in general yes, but not every member. The younger royals there is no evidence they have met them outside of official events. Besides Sophie and Edward, there isn't much evidence that anyone beyond the queen has sustained personal relationships with continental royals. Edward and Sophie outside of attending weddings officially, have been seen at birthdays and other private events as well. There is some evidence with Charles and Anne (being godmother to Haakon), but again different generation.

The Greek royals are another matter. They lived in London for years, and moved in the same social circles.

Beyond Harry with Seeiso or Franz Albrecht, the only younger royals who are seen in a private setting with the continentals, are the York girls. Mainly the former royal houses but still.

But William and Kate are at an odd age. The only heirs they are close to in age are Guillaume/Stephanie and Victoria/Daniel. They are around a decade younger then the other heirs/new sovereigns. I'd have suggested Madeleine and Chris but they no longer are in London.

In teh last year, the Cambridges would have met the NRF in Norway, as part of their official visit, and in Nov for Charles' birthday. There may well have been priovate visits that we are not aware of.

I remember those - both great occasions. I'm sure there are private visits we don't know of

Reportedly the Cambridges are back in London today but no one knows where they went during their half term break.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been enjoying spending some quality family time with their three young children over the half term holidays. But with the start of school and nursery commencing again on Monday for Prince George and Princess Charlotte, it was back to reality for the family as they made their way back to London. While Prince William and Kate have kept their holiday plans private, it is likely that they were staying at their country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk during the break. The family tend to spend their spare time at their country home, where both George and Charlotte spent their early years. Prince Louis, who turns one in April, will have no doubt enjoyed having his older siblings around for the week too.

The article suggest that they may have gone skiing but tends to focus mostly upon the idea that the family stayed at Amner Hall.

If there is an article of fluff, this is it. It is well known that the half term holidays have now ended, and all schools reopen today. Deducing the Cambridge's were back in London over the weekend would not be an act of a great sleuth. That they probably spent the week at either Anmer or skiing somewhere, again nothing new there.

I can't believe this is even a story. Must be a very slow news day.

I'm surprised that they even published it considering that the tabloids kept stating that the Cambridges were skiing over the half-term.

Worried the pool story would be leaked to some other paper and they wouldn't get the 'scoop' Had to try to save face any way by being the one to debunk their own story about skiing.

Please note that posts relating to the languages that the British Royal Family speak have been deleted. There is a thread to discuss that topic here: What languages do the British Royals know?
