Laughing as she carries her baby son in her arms, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton takes UK's future king Prince George on his first foreign holiday.
These relaxed and charming photographs were shot as Kate and her six month-old son disembarked a commercial flight in St Vincent on route to the paradise island of Mustique.
The Duchess had to leave her husband, Prince William, at home to continue with his studies at Cambridge University. Kate jetted out to the exclusive private island, which was made famous by the Queen's late sister, Prince Margaret, who once had a holiday home there, two weeks ago. There was no sign of her part-time nanny, Jessie Webb.
