Kate, George and Charlotte relax in the sunshine at William’s charity polo match

The Cambridges’ family outing came just a day after the Trooping the Colour ceremony in London.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte had fun in the sun with their mother as their father played polo.

The Duke of Cambridge was taking part in the Maserati Royal Charity Polo Trophy at Beaufort Polo Club in Tetbury, Gloucestershire, on Sunday afternoon.

The family outing came just a day after the Trooping the Colour ceremony to mark the Queen’s official birthday which was followed by a gathering of the royals on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

At a reception in March celebrating the Metropolitan Police, one officer joked William’s children could join the police cadets, to which the duke is said to have replied: “Well he does like the police at the moment.”
