Kate Middleton Has Been Chased By Photographers Who ‘Climbed On Buses’ To Take Pictures | Royal | New
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 39, were pictured outside Heathrow Airport last week. Prince William and Kate were spotted with their three children, Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three. The couple are said to have taken the young people abroad for the October school holidays. The family were seen arriving at the exclusive Windsor Suite at the airport, followed by a security check.
Their Norland College nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, was also in tow, according to MailOnline.
The Cambridges used blacked-out Audis to get to the Windsor Suite, which is inside Terminal Five and costs Â£ 3,300 for a three-hour stay.
It is not known where the family was flying to, but the Cambridges have had a busy schedule in recent weeks.
William and Kate attended the Duke’s first Earthshot Prize awards ceremony last weekend.
Kate presented one of the awards before appearing a few days later at the launch of the “Taking Action on Addiction” campaign.

The Duchess gave a speech on some of the misunderstandings surrounding drug addiction as she appeared at the event alongside hosts Ant and Dec.
Kate was praised for her speeches, with commentators noting how she became her royal role over the years.
However, unearthed testimonies reveal that Kate’s relationship with the media hasn’t always been easy.
Former Sun photographer Arthur Edwards said in 2010 that Kate had received a lot of attention from the paparazzi, some of whom had even resorted to “getting on buses” to take pictures of her.
The ex-photographer made the claim while testifying for a UK parliamentary inquiry into UK press self-regulation and the effectiveness of the Press Complaints Commission code of practice.
William and Kate separated temporarily for a few months in 2007, but were together again by the end of the year.
Mr Edwards told the broadcaster at the time that the couple’s age and media scrutiny had taken its toll.
He said: âWilliam said the 28th was a good time to get married – 28-30.
âNow it’s still a few years away and I don’t think she wants to put up with that for the next four or five years.
“Every morning when she leaves her house to her office with these issues, and I think she just thinks enough is enough.”
Kate’s lawyers filed their first complaints of media intrusion into her life in 2005.
In 2007, the Guardian reported that on Kate’s birthday, she “ran the gauntlet of more than 20 press photographers and five television crews as she walked out of her apartment.”
The media scrum came amid speculation that William could use Kate’s special day to propose to her.
