Royal mom-to-be Kate is on a winter escape, enjoying the sunshine of a Caribbean vacation.
She and husband William are sunning themselves on the paradise island of Mustique.
They are staying in a luxury $28,000 villa, reports the U.K.’s Sun tabloid.
The island – which was popular with William’s late great aunt, Princess Margaret, and is still hopping today with such celebrities as Mick Jagger – is a regular family vacation destination for the Duchess, whose parents, Carole and Mike, are said to be staying in a villa nearby.
Last year at this time, Kate and William stayed at Mustique’s magnificent (and secluded) Aurora House.
