Prince William and Kate Middleton were 270 miles apart this Christmas Day.
Prince William volunteered to work with his helicopter search and rescue crew in North Wales, while Kate spent Christmas Day with her parents in Berkshire, England.
The lovebirds are apparently spending New Year’s Eve together.
William is off work until after New Year’s celebrations are over. He is heading to the royal family’s retreat in Norfolk, eastern England. If Kate joins him, it would be the first time she’s stayed there at the same time as the Queen and extended family.
Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams, who is set to marry the couple on April 29th included the royal couple in his Christmas day address. “As the prince and his fiancee get ready for their new step into solidarity together, they will have plenty of inspiration around, more than you might sometimes guess from the chatter of our culture,” the BBC reports.
