The Duchess of Cambridge has been taking her two eldest children to one of her favourite London haunts, according to reports.

Kate, 37, is believed to have been keeping Prince George, six, and Princess Charlotte, four, entertained during the school holidays at private members club, The Hurlingham Club, in Fulham, London.

An insider told Hello! magazine: "Kate has been at Hurlingham a lot over the summer. She takes all the kids.

“There's a gorgeous playground they all love, and George and Charlotte have tennis lessons.

“They all pile into the clubhouse afterwards for lunch or tea and they're never bothered, they're just like any normal family. They all seem to really love it there."

The Hurlingham Club, is just a 25-minute drive from Kensington Palace, and boasts several outdoor tennis courts and a swimming pool within its 42 acres of grounds.

The children’s playground features tree houses, a zip wire and climbing walls. Perfect for Kate, George and Charlotte, who love being outdoors.

There’s also an indoor pool, gymnasium and different dining and meeting rooms.

The website states: “Membership of the Club is not currently being offered and the waiting list for new members is now closed, subject to annual review.”

Kensington Palace and the Hurlingham Club both declined to comment.

Last week Kate and husband Prince William, 37, took part in a sailing regatta off the Isle of Wight to raise awareness and funds for eight of their patronages.

But poor Kate ended up taking home the giant wooden spoon as her team came in last place. William’s boat got the upper hand by coming joint third.

The Cambridge kids were spotted watching the race on another boat with their grandparents Michael, 70, and Carole Middleton, 64.

They later joined their parents for the prize-giving ceremony and Princess Charlotte made the crowd laugh as she poked her tongue out at her grandfather Michael.

Prince George also showed that he’d lost more of his baby teeth, as he donned a captain’s hat. One-year-old Prince Louis was also in tow, but wasn’t pictured.

Before the regatta, the Cambridges had reportedly spent two weeks staying in a £27,000-a-week luxury villa on the private Caribbean island Mustique, where they celebrated Prince George’s sixth birthday.

Princess Charlotte joins her big brother at the private Thomas’s Battersea school this September. She previously attended Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington.
