The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are taking in some down time in the Caribbean this week before the pregnant Duchess goes back to work. Prince William and Kate Middleton will be relaxing on the exclusive island of Mustique in a luxury villa, with Middleton’s parents Michael and Carole Middleton renting a property close by. According to Mail Online, the royal couple will be staying in a 5-bedroom mansion, one of the most luxurious that the private island offers. A source explained, “Their villa is the height of luxury and the perfect place to relax before the endless round of feeds and nappies begins.” Meanwhile, St. James’s Palace announced on Tuesday that on Feb. 19, Middleton will visit the Action on Addiction centre in Clapham, London. She will meet with staff and clients at Hope House, a treatment center. The Daily Beast reports that this will mark the royal couple’s seventh trip to the island of Mustique together. A vacation to the island is also becoming a tradition for the Middleton family. While they’re there, the island will likely be on somewhat of a lockdown, with other guests vacationing there having to abide by certain rules to ensure the utmost safety for the royals. image: INF Daily
