Prince George has been clocking up some serious heir-miles this week, jetting off to the Caribbean with his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The 18-month-old has been whisked away to the tropical luxury of Mustique to celebrate his grandmother Carole Middleton’s 60th birthday at a £10,000-a-week villa.
Also accompanied by his aunt and uncle, Pippa and James, the well-travelled youngster made the 4,287 mile trip this week on a British Airways flight, albeit in first-class seats.
According to fellow travellers he was ‘impeccably behaved’, entertaining himself with soft toys on the nine-hour flight.
The family group then disembarked in St Lucia before hoping onto a private plane which flew them to the island.
Six-month pregnant Kate’s parents – Carole and Michael – will travel out to join them this weekend. They prefer to fly BA as they are still able to obtain a staff discount.
Mr Middleton was for many years an aircraft dispatcher with the firm while his wife was a stewardess.
It is understood that the family – accompanied by a team of Scotland Yard bodyguards – have taken over Villa Rocina.
Designed and built in 1971 in the style of a Caribbean plantation, it boasts its own 30ft pool as well as stunning views.
Guests have only to walk a few feet from their garden to snorkel in the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea in front of the house.
Each bedroom has its own en-suite bath and dressing room, and the property has an air-conditioned gym for guests who can tear themselves away from the sun and sand.
Four members of staff – a chef, a butler, a housekeeper and a gardener – will be on hand throughout the family’s stay to tend to their every whim.
And there is a spa nearby, for anyone finding themselves in need of extra pampering before the party on January 31.
