Prince William and Kate have jetted off to the Maldives for a week-long holiday just a month out from their three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia.
British tabloids report the couple have left Prince George with Kate's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, at their Berkshire mansion west of London.
The royal couple reportedly took a commercial flight to Male before a private hydroplane whisked them off to a paradise isle.
"The Duke and Duchess are staying at one of the most exclusive resorts in the Indian Ocean - the five-star Cheval Blanc Randheli Hotel on Noonu Atoll," the Daily Mail reported.

Prince William is meant to be completing an intensive 10-week agricultural management course at Cambridge University in preparation for managing the Duchy of Cornwall estate. Reports suggest there's a short break in classes.
Kate recently enjoyed a week-long family holiday with Prince George in Mustique in the Caribbean.
The Queen has given special permission for William and baby George to travel to New Zealand and Australia on the same plane in April.
Multiple heirs are not normally allowed on the same flight in case of an accident.
After touring New Zealand the royal family will visit Australia April 16 to 25.
