With another cold snap heading for the UK it seems Kate Middleton and Prince William have escaped the British winter for some sun and are reportedly holidaying on the island of Mustique with the Duchess' family.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are reportedly enjoying a winter break at a £19,000 week villa on the island paradise with Michael and Carole Middleton. The pregnant royal is due to give birth in July and no doubt is enjoying putting her feet up before the baby arrives.
An insider claims the break is a sign of just how much better the Duchess is feeling after being hospitalised for severe morning sickness in December, at less than 12 weeks pregnant.
A source told The Sun: "The duke and duchess have joined the Middletons for a winter break. "Both William and Kate were hoping her condition would not stop her from making the eight-hour flight to Barbados and the connection to Mustique.
"A month ago such a journey would have been unthinkable for her, so this is a clear sign she has made a virtual recovery."

The slender royal was spotted out shopping in London last week perhaps picking up some extras for the holiday. She sported a slight baby bump as she ran errands, covering up in a flattering Zara cape.
The Middletons are known to be fans of the stunning and private island of Mustique and have holidayed there several times with their daughter and her now husband spending their honeymoon there in 2011.
Let's hope Kate gets some more privacy on this break than she did while in France in September. The Duchess was humiliated when photos of her sunbathing topless were splashed across the international press.
