The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have some pretty nice digs on their “babymoon” – and are intent on keeping a low profile – in the idyllic island of Mustique.

Expecting their first baby in July, Prince William and Kate Middleton are staying at a five-bedroom villa set in lush gardens, which costs $25,000 a week:

Also enjoying paradise? William’s in-laws! Kate’s parents Carole and Mike and siblings James and Pippa Middleton all came along for some rest and relaxation.

As for their babymoon privacy concerns?


But on this visit, the couple are mostly keeping to themselves, and they have good reason.

With a staff of six (including a private chef on standby), a 60-foot infinity pool and a media room and guest cottage, their luxury villa has everything they need.

It’s also completely hidden from view if you’re on the main road of the island, with just the tips of the pitched roof line visible from the beach down below.

No more Kate Middleton topless photos, in other words. Phew.

When they do venture out, the stunning beach, which many believe to be the finest on the Caribbean island, is just a short walk down a private path from the house.

On past trips the duo has made many a trip down that path to stroll on the beach, take quick dips in the ocean and also to snorkel out past the rocky cove.

The beach is still public however, and the couple save their sunbathing for the villa’s expansive pool deck … again, for obvious reasons after their French holiday.

From the lounge chairs, pregnant Kate can look along the surface of an infinity pool and out to the other islands of the Grenadines spread out in the ocean below.

Mustique, a favorite of the Middletons for years, “is locked-down … that always means some royalty is here,” according to a source. Sounds like they’ve got it covered.

It wasn’t always this low-key for the royals.

On previous visits, William has stopped by for a drink and to play the piano at the bar at Firefly, and the couple even participated on Sunday karaoke night … seriously.
