The couple have two children together, Lady Louise Windsor, 16, and James, Viscount Severn, 12.

While they are the grandchildren of Queen Elizabeth II, the young royals are rarely seen out in public.

However, Sophie has opened up about her children in the past.

Earlier this year, she gave a rare interview where she discussed how they live a fairly normal life.

"They go to a regular school. They go to friends for sleepovers and parties," Sophie told The Sunday Times Magazine.

"At weekends we do lots of dog walking and stay with friends.

"I guess not everyone’s grandparents live in a castle, but where you are going is not the important part, or who they are.

"When they are with the Queen, she is their grandmother."

Royals including Prince Philip, Prince Edward, Prince Charles and Zara Tindall all boarded.

However, this is something Sophie chose not to do with her children, according to education expert and the founder of Tassomai.com, Murray Morrison.
