Why We Probably Won't Be Seeing The Duke And Duchess Of Sussex For The Rest Of The Summer

It's believed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal engagements are winding down this week, as August is the month the royal family usually take their summer holidays.

Harry and Meghan - dressed in Carolina Herrera - attended the annual Sentebale Polo Cup at the Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club over the weekend, which marked their final royal duty before their break.

Their well-deserved holiday comes at a good time as it's Meghan's 37th birthday next week (4 August), and her new husband likely has something special lined-up to celebrate.

While Kensington Palace won't disclose personal information about royal family members, a spokesperson for the palace did confirm to ELLE UK that "August is traditionally a quiet month in terms of Royal engagements".

Royal correspondent Rebecca English also appeared to confirm that Prince Charles and Camilla enjoyed their final engagement earlier this week (25 July) as she tweeted: "It's the annual Sandringham Flower Show today - Charles and Camilla’s last joint engagement before the summer break."

It's also been claimed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently holidaying for the first time as a family of five in Mustique, where they have been joined by Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton.

According to the Tea Time with the Cambridges blog, the Cambridge family were spotted arriving at St Lucia airport.

Meanwhile, the Queen is believed to be enjoying her summer holiday at Balmoral.
