It is truly hard to believe that Prince William and Duchess Kate's incognito moves worked Friday as the royal couple left the King's Cross train station to return home in London, but that's exactly what happened. Kate Middleton and Prince William, along with their dog Lupo, were returning from a trip to Norfolk last Friday when they managed to leave the train station and get into a car without getting totally swarmed.

According to the Mirror, Prince William and Duchess Kate's incognito plan worked well enough for them to catch some glimpses from others in the area, and there were a few photos taken, but they got from the station to their car without any big incidents. Prince George wasn't with them at the time.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge both were in jeans and donned baseball caps as they loaded up their things and got into the car. They apparently had been to Anmer Hall, their home on the Queen's Sandringham estate. People notes that the royals have been working on renovating the space, and they even managed to have a low-key date at the King's Head Hotel just before returning to London.

Apparently Prince William and Duchess Kate's incognito plan worked in that dinner date setting too, as they were able to relax and dine for a couple of hours without people going wild over them being there. It is said that they were approached by some locals, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge happily chatted with them. Typically, it seems those in the Norfolk are are used to seeing the royals and generally leave them alone.

Fans of the royal couple are glad to see that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were able to quietly steal away for a bit of alone time, and that Prince William and Duchess Kate's incognito appearances kept them from dealing with a lot of hassle upon their return.
