Kate Middleton and Prince William face protest storm after leaving George at home for adidas south africa Maldives getaway
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are facing a public backlash for going on a second honeymoon without seven month old Prince George.
Critics said they were wrong to leave the young Prince for so long, while others were concerned about the extravagance of their stay only a few weeks after the whole family, including George, went to Mustique.
The couple arrived at Cheval Blanc Randheli on Noonu Atoll, on Thursday for a week long break. Packages there, including flights, can cost 6,799 a person.
Some people questioned how Prince William, already condemned for boar hunting in Spain last month, was able to take time off from his ten week agriculture management course at Cambridge University.
One mother, who uses the blog name louloutheshames, posted on Mumsnet: ‘Seriously? Think this might turn public opinion against them .. seems its just one long holiday for the D and D of Cambridge.’
Another blogger called crazy spaniel remarked: ‘Well they need a holiday him to recover from the shooting holiday in Spain a couple of weeks ago, and adidas factory shop her to recover from the Mustique holiday last month.
I think she may even have put on a posh frock and “worked” for a couple of hours in between. No wonder they’re exhausted.’
However the couple also had some support. One mother of two said: ‘If the baby is in good hands, why not?
He is first [grandson] for doting GPs [grandparents] and probably has a very competent nanny.
If I could afford a holiday every few weeks without the baby, I’d take them too.’
Others said ‘each to their own’.
Next month the Royal couple embark on a three week tour of New Zealand and Australia this time accompanied by George.
Kensington Palace have declined to comment on a private holiday.
As a mother she has been branded selfish, uncaring, shameful and unusual. What nonsense.
The Duchess is none of those things. And, quite frankly, I believe she has made totally the right decision.
When my daughter was seven months old I took her on holiday to America.
I had more luggage than a family of ten, what with sterilisers, bottles, formula, nappies, every possible piece of medical equipment I might remotely require plus clothes, sun creams, prams, car seats, sun umbrellas and a selection of toys.
She screamed the whole way there, so much so that I contemplated drinking my own body weight in red wine.
The time difference played havoc with her body clock, and mine, and adidas y3 south africa I found I’d left certain toys at home she wanted. It was possibly the most stressful week of my life.
The truth is travelling with a baby, especially when aeroplanes are involved, is rarely a pleasant experience.
