Kate and William have reportedly jetted off on yet another holiday, this time to the Maldives. This makes three holidays for the Cambs this year: Mustique – Kate and George; Spain – William; Maldives – Kate and William. It is unclear whether George is with the Cambs in the Maldives. I’m going to guess they left him with the nannies. UPDATE: Reportedly George has been left with Carole while Will and Kate are away. He is accompanied by a full protection detail. /UPDATE Hilarious how Will and Kate say they don’t want to go anywhere with out him, yet William spent a week away from George while he was in Mustique with Kate, and now they are both spending a week away from him. They probably didn’t think they’d get caught going on vacation.
They reportedly landed at around 9:40-9:45 AM (reports vary) today (Thursday, 6 March) on a British Airways flight. They will be there for a week.
This is not the first time Will and Kate have jetted off on vacation before a tour. They went to France before their tour to SE Asia. Interestingly enough, that was also right around the time of the Paralympics. Of course we all remember how that trip ended: Kate breasts and bum flashed all over the internet. I guess we’ll see how this trip ends.
I’m not sure why they need a “break” before their tour. A “break” from what? It’s not like they are actually working right now. They don’t need a “break” because they have nothing to “break” from. I understand that the tour will be more work than they’ve done since… well their last tour, which was more work than they’ve probably done their entire lives (that’s not true, William did go through military training which is grueling), but they don’t need a vacation beforehand. Their tour itinerary is more grueling than they are used to, but I doubt it is any more grueling than the average person has to put up with in a normal 40 hour a week job. And all the Cambs will be doing is chatting to people and visiting things, and playing dress-up, it’s not like it’s hard labor or anything. This whole “vacation before a tour” thing is ridiculous.
Also, how many people did they take on their vacation with them? How many people did the taxpayer have to fly first class to the Maldives? How expensive are the rooms the taxpayer has to put those people up in? Ridiculous. UPDATE: The Cambs have rented out the entire 45 villa resort they are staying in to accommodate them and their party. No clue how much this costs, but be sure it’s damn expensive. /UPDATE
PS. The fact that William has taken two vacations when he’s supposed to be studying at Cambridge makes me think that he really was never that interested in the Cambridge course and that he used it as an excuse to put off full time duties, and to appease the public who were complaining about his second “gap year”. I had already suspected that when they announced it, but now I think that even more.
