No chauffeur needed.

Prince William, 34, took the driver’s seat as Princess Kate, also 34, and other members of the royal family headed to church near Balmoral, the Scottish summer home of Queen Elizabeth II.

While the Queen and Prince Philip rode in the back of their own chauffeured car, William drove Kate as they headed to Sunday services. Like his son, Prince Charles also took over the wheel when he drove Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, to church.

The Cambridges arrived in Scotland earlier this week with 3-year-old Prince George and 16-month-old Princess Charlotte in tow.

“They looked really happy,” a local tells PEOPLE. “They were coming up to see the others for a picnic when the shoot had its break.”

The royal party was photographed about five miles from Balmoral Castle, but still on the estate. The Queen drove Kate to a remote part of the estate to meet with William for a picnic while he was grouse hunting.

The extended royal family often makes the trip to Balmoral at least once during the Queen’s month-long vacation. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected back in England later this week.
