William and Kate soon wont be able to fly in the same plane as their children

The Royal Family have to follow some rather peculiar rules to protect the future of the monarchy, and one of those include senior members not being allowed to fly together unless they are granted permission by the Queen in advance.

The Cambridges were spotted with their children at an airport last week which left curious fans wondering whether the pair were able to travel on the same plane together.

Prince William drove his wife Kate and their two children Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, to Heathrow airport on October 21.

Photographers were able to capture the family before they set off, as they sported huge smiles while they unloaded their luggage outside of the airport, reports Express.

However the Cambridges will soon be unable to travel together as a family due to an ancient rule protecting the royal lineage.

When Prince George turns 12, he will be required to fly separately from his father.

The reason is because both Prince William and Prince George are currently second and third in line to the throne respectively, which means as per royal tradition they must travel separately in the event something tragic happens en route.

Many have speculated the Cambridges could be on their way to Greece for the wedding of Princess Diana’s godson Prince Philippos and Nina Flohr.

Typically the family are best known for undertaking domestic holidays to locations such as the Isles of Scilly, Lake District and their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

The royals were joined by their nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo at the airport.

They have undertaken several holidays together including royal tours to Canada, Poland and Germany.
