Kate Middleton has let slip a favourite royal holiday destination in the UK

The British royal family have their hands full when it comes to their busy schedule of attending galas, charity dinners, tea parties and events such as Trooping the Colour.

Undoubtedly there are pros and cons when it comes to royalty; from the lack of privacy and media rumours to the fashion, the castles and the luxurious, expensive jewellery.

Every royal needs some time off, and Kate Middleton has just revealed a popular getaway destination where her family can get that much-needed break; The Lake District.

The Duchess of Cambridge let it slip where her family heads off for a quick break from London, and it's surprisingly accessible. 

According to a report in Hello! Magazine., Kate reportedly told members of the public about her favourite holiday spot in the UK while taking part in a royal tour of Weswick, Cumbria.

The insider claims; "She said that it was raining a lot and was a long way from their home in Norfolk, but they love it here."

"She said that her children love coming here and walking in the fells," another royal fan continued. "She told us how nice the Lake District was and how lucky we were to live so close to the mountains."

The Lake District in northwest England is renowned for it's natural beauty, and is the ideal vacation for outdoor activities and picturesque scenes.

Iconic authors such as Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin have visited the region, and poet William Wordsworth's former home Dove Cottage remains open to tourists.

Lauded by the UNESCO World Heritage Committee as, "a harmonious landscape in which the mountains are mirrored in the lakes", so it's no wonder artists have been inspired by it's beauty.

We're considering paying the lovely place a visit, if royalty adores it then perhaps it's time to add it to our own bucket list.
