Prince William and Kate Middleton recently delighted fans when a photo showed them enjoying a family day out to a local pub in Norfolk.

But whilst the royal pair may have looked like any other couple enjoying lunch with their children, royal expert Katie Nicholl exclusively reveals to OK! the covert security detail that would have been hiding in plain sight.

"There will have been a security detail with Kate and William and the children on their recent pub lunch outing but it would have been a discreet," she explains.

"A plain clothed and unidentifiable security guard who was positioned at another table. They would have blended in with the rest of the pub."

Kate and William divide their time between their residences at Kensington Palace in London and Anmer Hall in Norfolk with their three children Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three.

And Katie insists that outings to the pub and date nights are the norm for the married royals.

"They tend to go to the same places and these are places where they are known and have a good relationship with the landlord or landlady," Katie says.

"They've been going to these places for a long time, so it's not unusual and it's not difficult for them to go and relax. The locals are incredibly protective of them.

"You don't often see people get out their camera phones and record them. They are left to just get on with a family occasion."

She adds: "Norfolk is one of the few places they can just enjoy ordinary, every day experiences as a family. William and Kate often go out on date nights and you don't hear about it."

Kate and William were said to look like any other couple at their recent pub outing in Norfolk.

Dressed in a T-shirt and trousers, hair tied back in a ponytail, Kate sat with her sons either side at the casual picnic table.

Across from her, Wills could be seen tucking into a burger and chips, while Charlotte sat at his side and the family dog circled the wooden table they were seated at.

William was even seen comforting one of the children after their food was too hot.

No doubt the royal pair were winding down after a busy week of royal engagements.

Tennis enthusiast Kate appeared in her element last week when she met with British US Open champion Emma Raducanu.

The pair even enjoyed a spot of tennis together as they took to the courts.

The duchess was attending a homecoming celebration for Great Britain’s US Open Champions, hosted by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) Youth programme, at the National Tennis Centre.
