Prince William and Kate Middleton—and by extension, their three children—have officially begun their annual summer vacation. Luckily for Prince George, his birthday tends to coincide with this royal break, and he often gets to celebrate in a far-flung locale.
This year, the Sun reports that Prince George will fête his sixth birthday with the rest of the Cambridge family during their vacation on Mustique, an isle in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The private island has a long history as a preferred royal getaway, starting with Princess Margaret back in the day—and for good reason. Mustique's privacy and security, headed up by a former Scotland Yard Chief, are world-class.
"Every island visitor is registered with our security team before arriving on island by land, air or sea, whether staff, local islander or guest to ensure the security team know who is on island at any one time," the island's website boasts.
It'll be the second time George celebrates a birthday on Mustique, after marking his fifth on the island last year. His maternal grandparents, Carole and Michael Middleton, reportedly joined the Cambridge family for that trip.
It's not just the kids who enjoy the beachside vacation, though. Last year, Kate and Will were able to sneak away for a date night at one of the island's establishments, Basil Bar. The royal couple are friends with the bar's founder, Basil Charles, and were spotted dancing at its 50th anniversary party. The star-studded guest list also reportedly included Mick Jagger and his daughter Jade—and we'd like to think Will and Kate danced with them, too.
