Kate Middleton vacations in £15,000-a-week Aurora villa in Caribbean island

Andrea Divirgilio / January 23, 2012

Ever since her $70 million wedding to Prince William last year, which became the most televised event in history, Kate Middleton has truly become the center of world media’s attention. Whether it’s her dress, or even the expenditure of the $100,000 a day honeymoon she went with His Highness, Kate Middleton has been amongst the headlines for virtually every little thing she does. Her most recent splurge is the £15,000 ($23,346) a week family vacation in the privately owned Mustique Island, which has created quite a bit of stir because of the security team of the family. Due to their security measures, the rest of the visitors on the island seem to be facing restrictions while being on their vacation, which has ended causing quiet the displeasure. But none the less, the Dutchess of Cambridge seems to be enjoying it all at the Aurora Villa, which they have hired for members of the family.

The Destination

The Mustique Island lies 18 miles south from the St.Vincent collection of islands in the Eastern Caribbean, which happens to be a favorite destination for beach side vacations, especially for the rich holidaymakers. Measuring 1.5 miles wide and 3 miles long, the Mustique Island appears to be much larger because of the rocky terrain around the island’s surface, though beachside vacationing is still a pleasure. More than 80 Villas fulfill the location’s accommodation capacity, but the Aurora Villa seems to be the most important of them all, with Kate Middleton’s family vacation.

Accommodation

Compared to her royal residence in recent times, the Aurora is still a much more toned down vacation villa on the eastern Caribbean island. It consists of 3 bedroom suites which comprise of 2 doubles and a single suite, dining area, media and living room, apart from the courtyard areas between the different blocks of the villa. Though there lies a fully equipped kitchen alongside, but we wonder if anyone from the family will actually be cooking in there. However, there also lays a separate cottage called Jasmine, which also has a pool in it. With comparisons to the shape and size, it seems that the accompanying members of the staff would be using it, but the features are equally pleasing.
