Of course, as a royal couple, anything less than regal surroundings for a spell abroad wouldn’t really be fitting.
Now Will and Kate have opted for a luxe option once more for a spot of overseas R & R, spending what could be their last pre-baby break in a £19,000-a-week Caribbean villa on the island of Mustique.
Joined by Michael and Carole Middleton and sister Pippa, the couple are said to be staying in a £5-million, five-bedroom mansion.
It has also been reported that there are six members of staff who have been assigned to cater to their every whim.
The accommodation boasts a number of envy-inducing features, including en-suite bedrooms with dressing rooms, canopied, four-poster beds and a private veranda with stunning views of the ocean.
Venturing outside of the villa, the couple can opt to take a dip in the local 64ft swimming pool or simply take a leisurely stroll in tropical gardens featuring a lily pond and a gazebo.
The tiny island of Mustique has long enjoyed a connection with the British royal family, and shot to fame in the 1960s when its owner, Lord Glenconner, gave the Queen’s late sister Princess Margaret a ten-acre plot of land as a wedding present.
Princess Margaret was said to adore the island, commissioning theatrical designer Oliver Messel to design her villa, Les Jolies Eaux, a place where she could retreat away from the eyes of the public.Alex Francis
