Kate Middleton and Prince William are enjoying a romantic family getaway before welcoming their second child.
The royal couple, who have been married for three years, brought their one-year-old son Prince George for the babymoon at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
The trip marks Kate's slow return to the spotlight after a six-week hiatus imposed by doctors as she battled severe pregnancy sickness, similar to what she experienced in her first pregnancy.
And the Duchess of Cambridge managed to make the entire flight without illness, according to royal insiders, who added that she's feeling much better.
"William wanted to take Kate away for a break after her rough past couple of months,” a source told Us Weekly. “They both love the outdoors and the weather isn't too cold yet, so it's the perfect time to take a trip.”
“It’s great that George is now at an age where he can travel,” the insider added.
The couple regularly visit Balmoral, the Queen's Scottish residence, where they have full access, and the trio flew over in August to spend quality time with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
Last week, Kate made two public appearances and Kensington Palace confirmed her appearances will be decided on a case by case basis.
The couple will welcome their second child in April of next year.
