After spending much of the year at Anmer Hall due to the coronavirus pandemic, Kate and Prince William are back in London. Prince George, 7, and Princess Charlotte, 5, are attending school at St. Thomas's Battersea nearby, while 2-year-old Prince Louis keeps his parents company at home when they're not out on royal engagements.

Last week, Kate met some of the finalists of her Hold Still photo project as she and Prince William took in some of the stunning images that have gone on display around London. The royal parents toured two sites on Tuesday in a surprise outing to showcase her lockdown photo project that is being celebrated around the U.K. as part of the Hold Still community exhibition.
