Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoy date night

Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a "low key" date at a local pub.

The royal couple - who have two-year-old Prince George and nine-month-old Princess Charlotte together - were seen taking a well-deserved night off from their royal duties as they dined at The Crown in East Rudham, Norfolk.

A regular at the pub told The Sun newspaper: "They were very low key and it seemed quite a last minute thing. Maybe it was a rare night out since Charlotte was born.

"They were both dressed down - with Kate in skinny jeans and a navy jumper - and just wanted a quiet table out of the way. They both looked a little tired but seemed to have a lovely time and left at about 10.30pm.

"They were leaning into one another chatting away, laughing and joking. It's nice for them to have a normal night out like any other parents of young children."

Prince William was seen enjoying a glass of wine whilst Duchess Catherine opted for sparkling water.

Meanwhile, it is no surprise that the couple - who wed in 2011 - needed a break as alongside their tough schedule, they have their family to raise too.

Of their children, the Prince said previously: "It is more responsibility, looking after two little ones, especially when George is around. He's a little monkey.

"But it's fantastic having a lovely little family and Catherine has been doing an amazing job as a mother and I'm very proud of her."
