Although Kate Middleton is currently on her maternity leave and hence, away from her responsibilities as a royal family member, the Duchess of Cambridge is utilizing her break from royal duties by spending time with her older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

The new mom, who gave birth to Prince Louis last month, seemed to have left the baby with the nurses and gladly took time to bond with her other kids on a trip to the Houghton Horse Trials in Norfolk which took place on Sunday.

The family set out for a day full of fun, and the children played out their time in Norfolk like any other normal family, with eating ice-creams and George even getting to ride in one of the ambulance vehicles. 

The doting mother looked fabulous as usual, as she sported a chic $70 cotton dress from Zara, which has since been declared as sold out.

"We were sitting on the bench having something to eat and I noticed this beautiful woman in a blue dress who had two kids with her and I suddenly realized who it was," said onlooker Jack Schmollmann to the Daily Mail

"I think other people noticed them but not everybody because they did their best to blend in and were just going about their daily lives," revealed the 32-year-old, who was the first one to snap pictures of the royal family members.

"They were having a nice family day out, eating ice creams and sitting in the sunshine. Kate had picked up a toy of some sort for George which he started unwrapping and they looked like they were having a nice, relaxing day."

The trip to Houston was the first time that the Duchess was seen out and about in public, since her last appearance to the public was on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding, which took place on May 19, Saturday.

And in recent news, it is being speculated that the Duchess, who is supposedly on her maternity leave till autumn, is all set to attend Wimbledon this year with her fellow tennis fan and sister-in-law Meghan Markle, aka the Duchess of Sussex.

Kate has always been a huge fan of the tennis event and has been a patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for a long time now. She has mostly been spotted at some of the most popular matches, including the coveted men's singles final with her husband Prince William in the past.

On the other hand, Meghan is also an avid supporter of the sport and has been seen attending the games multiple times while cheering for one of her best friends, Serena Williams. In fact, Meghan once sat in the same box as Prince William and his family, and on another occasion, she was pictured sitting just a few seats away from her now-husband Prince Harry and his ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas.

Meghan has previously spoken about her love for the game, as well as her underlying support for her good friend Serena in her now-defunct blog The Tig. 

"We hit it off immediately, taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing in, and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff," she wrote, after adding, "So began our friendship… and she quickly became a confidante I would text when I was traveling, the friend I would rally around for her tennis matches, and the down-to-earth chick I was able to grab lunch with just a couple weeks ago in Toronto."
