Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton and William summer holiday in Mustique Caribbean villa

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent £56,000 on a two-week villa holiday on the idyllic Caribbean island of Mustique this summer.

Kate and William rented the exclusive £27,000-a-week Villa Antilles, which boasts a 60ft infinity pool and stunning sea views out to the neighbouring islands of Bequia and Saint Vincent. 

The couple flew out with their three children and Kate’s parents Carole and Mike two weeks ago and returned to the UK yesterday, reports The Sun. 

Prince George, who celebrated his sixth birthday during the two-week break, was more a fan of the bunk beds in his and his siblings’ bedroom than the in-house chef, butler and private garden. 

The children’s room was kitted out with two budget bunk beds, an elephant laundry basket and whales on the walls.

Villa Antilles is one of the newest on the Caribbean island, which has been a favourite of the Middletons and the Royal Family for years. 

It was built by William’s close friend and property developer Andrew Dunn who made sure no expense was spared, particularly on the stunning sea terrace.

A friend of the couple told The Sun: ‘Antilles is the newest villa on the island and is totally set up for a family.   

‘The kids who have stayed there before absolutely love the bunk beds and child friendly facilities. As the villa is fully staffed they can also ask for whatever they want, whenever they want.’

The villa is set in the Endeavour Hills area of Mustique, which is part of Saint Vincent and The Grenadines, where William’s grandmother is the reigning monarch.

Mustique is a private island where only those with the biggest budgets can afford to stay. It is perfect for the royals, with its own police force and secluded location. 

Its website states: ‘Every island visitor is registered with our security team before arriving on island by land, air or sea, whether staff, local islander or guest, to ensure the security team know who is on the island at any one time.

‘With such a conscientious and friendly team looking after you, rest assured, you will never want to leave.’

In the last few decades it has been sectioned up into plots and bought my socialite and rock star shareholders. 

Prince Margaret has been seen there along with Mick Jagger and model Cara Delevingne.  

Kate and William have been before, spending there time playing tennis, snorkelling and scuba diving. Last year they partied at the island’s exclusive Basil Bar.
