Mustique: the Middletons' favourite holiday destination where Kate has taken Prince George on his first ever holiday

This week's issue of HELLO! magazine has secured world exclusive photographs of Kate Middleton jetting off to the Middleton family's favourite holiday destination, the Caribbean island of Mustique, where the Duchess has taken baby Prince George on his first ever holiday.

Kate and baby George, the third-in-line to the throne, joined the Middletons on their annual holiday in a luxury four-bedroom villa overlooking the sea and staffed by a butler, chef, housekeeper and gardener.

The tiny paradise island – famed for its unspoiled exotic beauty as well as its impressive list of celebrity visitors – has long been a favourite holiday destination for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and was first given the royal seal of approval by Prince William's great-aunt, the late Princess Margaret, who was given one of the 74 villas by her suitor Colin Tennant.
