They do work, right?
Those are the words critics are using after headlines announced Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, are on yet another vacation – this time, the couple went to Maldives, the Daily Mail reports.
It is just the two of them – no Prince George.
There were reports George has been left with Kate’s parents, but others say he is with his new nanny so she can figure out his routine without Kate and William around to interfere.
The move has caused some controversy with some saying the couple should have taken their son while others say the couple needs to have some alone time.
Kate just returned from a family vacation to Mustique with her family, but no William (she did take Prince George with her).
William, meanwhile, was just in Spain with his brother on a bachelor party that involved hunting boar.
Of course, this may be a much-needed vacation for the couple to reconnect after it was reported Prince William’s trip to Spain included former love interest Jecca Craig – and that he is eager to go to Africa this spring for an event on her family’s property.
It may also be an opportunity for the couple to reconnect after the birth of their son. Babies do strange things to any marriage – even ones that seem solid as a rock. They might just need the “us” time.
I do not think there is anything wrong with Kate and William going on vacation. (who doesn’t want to escape this winter weather?)
I also think it is OK they left George at home. But I have to agree with some critics who point out these two seem to do little else than relax.
Sure, William is currently taking a 10-week agriculture course (apparently he has this week off), but Kate does not seem to do much except attend the occasional event and decide she wants to redo their family home just a year after fresh paint went on the walls.
The couple, who have made it clear their lives are private unless they state otherwise, really aren’t going to win people over by doing whatever they want, whenever they want. And that includes multiple vacations within the first three months of a year.
Both of them really need to step up their volunteering and appearances before they are dubbed B-list celebrities who are just spoiled little rich kids.
