Prince William, Kate Middleton to take royal break to spend time with kids

Are Prince William and Kate Middleton following in Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's footsteps?

A new report claims the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge plan to take a brief break from their royal duties this month -- but palace aides can breathe a sigh of relief because it doesn't appear to be a repeat of Megxit.

William, 37, and Kate, 38, have been steadily hosting events and making royal appearances since Harry and Meghan decided to "step back" from their senior status as members of the royal family. According to Us Weekly, the royal couple plan to slow down in order to spend more time with their three kids.

The magazine reports Prince George, 6, and Princess Charlotte, 4, have a short school break from Feb. 17 to Feb. 21 so the parents will be dedicated to spending time with them and 22-month-old Prince Louis, according to the report.

William and Kate have been busy making appearances all over the U.K. in recent weeks amid Harry and Meghan's relocation to Vancouver, Canada.

Last week, the royal couple was caught off guard at the BAFTAs (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) when Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt and Rebel Wilson poked fun at “Megxit” and Prince Andrew.
