Pippa Middleton was seen on the beach with Prince William, sister Kate and baby George as they enjoyed their holiday on the Caribbean island of Mustique.
The pictures have been published online on the website of US publication New York Daily News, showing the royals and Middletons in their swimming gear on the beach.
Kate’s sister Pippa and brother James are in the photographs as well as her dad Michael as the family enjoy the luxury holiday celebrating Carole Middleton’s 60th birthday.
The pictures of George show him walking with his mum, who is six months pregnant with her second baby, and Spanish nanny Maria Borrallo.
They are likely to spark anger from William, 32, who has made it plain he sees pictures of his family in their private time as strictly off limits.
He and Kate recently sent a legal letter to a photographer to stop him from photographing 18-month-old Prince George out and about in west London going to the park.
Kate, William and George were spotted heading to Mustique via St Lucia almost two weeks ago and her parents were pictured on their way to join them a few days later.
The Middletons usually stay in $20,000-per week Villa Aurora which boasts a 45 foot swimming pool, private rock pool with sun deck and has five household staff, according to the National Ledger.
The royals are expected to return to the UK this week and Kate has an engagement in Portsmouth on February 12.
Photographers spotted Carole and Michael at London’s Gatwick Airport on January 25 towing seven pieces of luggage. But, that is where they said adieu.
Aside from the gorgeous beaches, another perk of the Middleton’s favorite vacation spot is the ban on paparazzi. The family who have been visiting the island for several years can relax poolside, on the beach or their balconies with no prying eyes.
Even though, it is her daughter who is now the royal, the entire family is in the spotlight. The mom of three would do anything for her kids. “Carole is smart, savvy, discreet and always available for her children,” Ingrid Seward writes for HELLO! magazine, “Like a lioness with her cubs, she has protected them, none more than Kate, who needs her most right now.”
It is easy to see why William has grown very fond of Carole and Michael. He has insisted upon giving his in-laws an unprecedented level of access to royal events. This past Christmas, the couple attended church services with Queen Elizabeth and company. They then stayed with William and Kate at their newly renovated Anmer Hall on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate for two weeks.
Those who have met her say that Mrs. Midi, as she’s called fondly around their Bucklebury, Berkshire circles, is discreet but friendly and fun too. She loves chatting about fashion and horses. “Camilla and [Prince Charles] have entertained the Middletons on several occasions and Camilla was said to be pleasantly surprised to discover Carole’s lively and entertaining personality,” Ingrid notes.
Carole, a hands-on grandmother to 18-month George, will of course be at William and Kate’s beck and call when the couple welcomes their second child in April.
