It seems like Kate Middleton and Prince William are enjoying some quality family time before the royal tree grows a bit bigger.

Ahead of the highly-anticipated arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first child, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spending time with William's cousin, Zara Tindall, and her family.

The group soaked up the sun and appeared to have fun while outdoors. So much so, Kate gave her 3-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, a piggyback ride while Mike Tindall carried Prince George on his shoulders (with a toy sword in his hand, no less!). The Duke of Cambridge carried his goddaughter, Mia Tindall, on his shoulders as well.

 Furthermore, Mike and Zara's 9-month-old, Lena Tindall, was in attendance. Missing from the family outing? Prince Louis, who will turn 1-years-old this month.

The family spent time at the Burnham horse trials in Norfolk, which isn't far from Prince William and Kate's country home in Anmer Hall. They've been hanging out there during the Easter holidays.

It seems the next time we'll see all of the family gathered around is when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcome their baby.

However, not many details are known about Meghan's pregnancy, like her due date, birth plans, etc. In fact, Buckingham Palace stated the family is asking for privacy at this time.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby," the palace stated.

"Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private. The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family."

We will all be anxiously awaiting the royal baby's arrival!
