It turns out that Prince George and Princess Charlotte love spending their school half-term break in the same way as any other young kids - with animals and getting muddy.

Their dad, Prince William, 37, revealed yesterday that he had enjoyed a week of lambing with his six-year-old son and four-year-old daughter in Norfolk.

According to the Daily Mail, the Duke of Cambridge told a fellow guest at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, ahead of the Six Nations match, how his two eldest children took to farming in rather different ways.

The father-of-three also added that son Prince Louis, one, also joined in - but was more a fan of the tractors.

Speaking in his role as patron of the Welsh Rugby Union to injured player Rhian Roberts, the duke explained how he wanted to introduce his kids to country life.

He said: “We've been lambing with the children this week.

“Charlotte wasn't sure at first but George was straight in there. Louis loves the tractors.

“They love seeing the lambs and feeding the lambs. Dairy farming - you are all seriously tough.”

The primary school teacher, 34, told him she had married a dairy farmer in West Wales, prompting the royal to describe his experience of the occupation.

Roberts told the paper that the duke was “down to earth” during their conversation about farming.

She recalled: “We were talking about the land where he was and the land where we are, which is a mining area.

“He said they've been lambing this week up in Norfolk.

“They want the children to see the country way of life as well as the city way of life.”

It is unclear exactly which farm the duke took his kids to visit, however it is likely to be near his and wife Kate Middleton’s Norfolk country home, Anmer Hall.

It is situated in the grounds of the Queen’s country estate, Sandringham, and was given to them by her as a wedding present.

According to Town & Country, the Georgian manor house has ten bedrooms and also features a tennis court and swimming pool.

It appears the duke and duchess are particularly fond of the property - with their 2018 Christmas card picture taken in the picturesque grounds.

Although their two eldest children are at school in London - during which the Cambridges stay at Kensington Palace - the family regularly visit their second home in the holidays, particularly during Christmas when Her Majesty relocates to the area.
