Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, have left Prince George with his grandparents and jetted off on what some are calling a “second honeymoon” in an Indian-Ocean paradise.

Britain's Prince William an Duchess Catherine (Kate Middleton) have left their son Prince George with family while they enjoy a romantic holiday.

The visit comes only a few weeks after Kate took a vacation in Mustique with her family and Prince William went on a hunting holiday with his brother, Prince Harry, in Spain.

The royal couple flew to Male in the Maldives on Friday (07.03.14) for a 'second honeymoon' and have left their seven-month-old son with Catherine's parents Carole and Michael Middleton at their Berkshire mansion, along with a Scotland Yard security guard.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were taken from a First Class cabin into a VIP lounge before taking a British Airways flight on a private hydroplane accompanied by several other detectives, according to Mail Online.

The couple are said to be staying in the luxury five star Cheval Blanc Randheli Hotel on Noonu Atoll, one of the most exclusive resorts in the Indian Ocean, which only has 45 villas.

A four night stay in the hotel can set a holiday-goer back more than £6,000 and each villa has its own 41ft infinity pool, along with an outside dining area and private beach.

Catherine and William, who are set to embark on a 19-day royal visit to Australia and New Zealand next month with George, have had a busy few months with William, 31, taking a 10-week intensive course in agricultural management at Cambridge University.

The prince - who is studying in order to prepare himself for taking over the Duchy of Cornwall estate - doesn't have any classes this week and the course is set to conclude at the end of the month.

Catherine, 32, enjoyed a holiday with her family and George in Mustique at the end of January to mark her mother Carole's 59th birthday but is looking for a break before the royal visit.
