Kate Middleton and Prince William have jetted off to the south of France with their two children.
The royal couple reportedly arrived in Pau-Pyrenees on Tuesday afternoon with George and Charlotte.
The pair arrived on the £8 (€9) million Cessna private plane owned by the UK's richest man, the Duke of Westminster.
The couple regularly borrow the Duke's plane, which seats up to eight people and is said to cost £12,000 (€14,286) a day to hire.
According to French publication La Republique des Pyrenees, a blacked-out Range Rover was waiting to chauffeur the family to their destination, in the direction of north Bearn and Gers.
The royal protection officers and a group of Scotland Yard personnel were also spotted at the airport
A spokesperson for the Kensington Palace confirmed to OK magazine that they are on a "private family holiday" and it is believed they are visiting friends and relatives in France.
It is not known where the family were travelling to but the airport is located 70 miles from the glitzy coastal resort of Biarritz.
It's the second time that Kate and William have visited France this summer.
In June they travelled to France to pay tribute to the centenary of the Battle of Somme during World War One at the Thiepval memorial to the Missing.
And in March the couple visited a "top secret" resort in the French Alps with their two children for a skiing holiday.
