Today is the 26th of July, which means we are knocking on the door of August, the month of royal retirement. Traditionally, the British royals, as well as many European royals, take the month off. Before you start shouting about how they live too privileged a life, remember that this break affords a much needed rest for royal reporters and photographers who cover the royal family. These people finally get to sneak away with their families and put their feet up. It is possible that Kate will have another engagement, but I don't know that it is super likely. Today, a French paper is reporting that the Duchess is in France.
According to a French paper, multiple sources claim that the Duchess landed in Pau in the Pyrenees today at around 1:30pm. Again, according to sources, she flew in on board the private plane of the Duke of Westminster. When William and Kate need a private getaway, they borrow Westminster's private jet. According to the paper, Kate was whisked north from the airport.

I am happy to hear that Kate has returned to France. The last time she vacationed here privately (to our knowledge) was when the invasive photos were taken. I am glad it hasn't put her off irreparably from a country that cannot help but draw you back again and again. If you speak French, you can read the full article here.
