The whole Cambridge family has been out of sight for the past week, thanks to a break in Prince George and Princess Charlotte's school schedules. Now, a reporter is giving royal watchers a taste of what they've been up to—and it's about as cute as you'd imagine.

This past week, Kate Middleton took George and Charlotte to a luxury spa in Norfolk—not far from the family's country home, Anmer Hall—for some time at the pool. Per the Daily Mail, Kate organizing some swimming races between the two kids, letting them engage in a little friendly competition.

"Kate was organizing little races for them and they did it around four or five times," a source revealed to the Mail. "She said 'ready, steady go' and did a downward chopping action in the water to indicate the start of the race."

The kids also practiced their diving. "Charlotte was doing sitting dives," the source continued. "She was squatting on the side with her arms up in dive position, she kept saying, 'Look mummy I’m diving in.'"

Onlookers seemed to be impressed with how well-behaved the two young royals were. When their mother gave an instruction, George and Charlotte happily obeyed. "When the children tried to jump in the water, Kate frequently indicated 'No' and shook her finger and then she pointed out the no diving signs to both children who then seemed appeased."

It's great to hear that the prince and princess enjoyed their quick break, as they're back in school again today.
