Princess Charlotte: Royals head for privacy of country

By Laura Elston

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have left Kensington Palace with their four-day-old daughter Princess Charlotte as they retreat to their country home Anmer Hall.

William and Kate headed out of London with their new baby and her elder brother, Prince George, as they made their way to Norfolk.

They will spend the first few weeks of the princess's life in their refurbished Georgian mansion on the Queen's private Sandringham estate as they get to grips with looking after both a newborn and a toddler.

Royal relatives including great-grandmother the Queen and grandfather the Prince of Wales travelled to Kensington Palace to meet the fourth-in-line-to-the-throne princess, as have Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton and sister Pippa Middleton.

William is on two weeks' paternity leave from his job as an air ambulance helicopter pilot and will be on unpaid leave until he starts the final phase of his training at the beginning of June.
