Video:
Prince William and Kate are on a romantic getaway and have left Prince George at home with his new nanny.
Wills and Kate go on holiday without baby George - TV News Video | TVNZ

It seems like William & Catherine held an event with members of the media, possibly last week, and introduced the media to George.

I expect William & Kate to leave the Maldives today as the Prince is due to resume his studies in Cambridge by the end of the week....

Didn't know you had to go to the maldives to do that, maybe all couples should get a trip out there instead of IVF.

They can, just as long as it is not funded on the NHS!

Well you never know, that's how William and Catherine might have got out there.

Oh yeah, American comedian, Steve Harvey will tell you what the "cookie" is and it's true. Sometimes couples need their private time to get away for awhile and have some real fun and I don't blame them for doing so.

I'm there with you. I don't think there is anything wrong with taking some time together. At least they are making an attempt to keep the fire in their marriage going. It's true that with a child and a busy schedule you tend to lose focus on your partner somewhat and sometimes to the point where you wonder what happened. I admire the fact that they have made time for each other and want to make the marriage a success. I for one support them.

You don't have to go to the Maldives to keep the fire in your relationship, or to make your marriage a success.

LadyGabrielle, I hear you. You have to take some time out and focus on each other, have some fun and keep that fire and desire going.

Oh, Im sorry lumutqueen, being on a romantic tropical island far from the hustle and bustle of city life and unending paparazzi and thousands of people wanting to see you or take your picture and everyone pulling you in all directions isnt somewhat romantic to you? No I suppose you dont HAVE to go to an island to have a romantic time with your spouse but it sure doesnt hurt. Obviously they think the best place to be is far from anything and anyone. I think it is a great idea considering they will be in the spotlight for the rest of their lives. A little time away alone is the smartest thing they can do, it is a good time for them to focus and rejuvenate considering the busy work schedule and who knows what else. Maybe your idea of a romantic getaway is different but, someplace warm and remote with just the two sounds perfect to me.

What??? He (DoCa) couldn't even finish his short stint at school before taking a holiday. Oh wait...perhaps it's "Spring Break" and, being a uni student, he had to go off like all the other students. Hope they have a good time and that the paps find them. We need some new photos.

If it is spring break for Cambridge than this is when the instructor would be off as well. William already had a week of royal engagements during the course, so the flexibility was likely built in when the course was designed.

"Mail Online" Now Has Report Showing Taronga Zoo.

There is a photo of the front of Sydney's Taronga zoo - amongst many others - that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will most likely enter/depart by in the "Mail Online" report about bilby "George" - "Fly eggs and live worms" etc., for anyone interested in this part of the upcoming Royal Tour.

(On my tablet, unable to post link.)

Cheers, Sun Lion.

P.S. Report also says W and C will "engage" in the feeding sessions of the tree kangaroos and the giraffes.

(Makes sense - iconic Sydney background for photos with those giraffes, as previously noted!)


PP.S. Taronga on TV just now - first tree kangaroo joey born in captivity - after a twenty year program.

They're endangered in their native Papua New Guinea.

She's a little female, and you can go online and suggest a name - maybe "Catherine" or "Duchess" could be the go.

And More Details...

...I just noticed the "Mail Online" report is also saying the Duke and Duchess will watch the "birds of prey" demonstration at Taronga.

I didn't mention this when I posted about the zoo a few days ago, but this is one of the not to be missed experiences.

The open ampitheatre is set overlooking Sydney Harbour and it is very dramatic and exciting with the owls, eagles, parrots and other birds flying about - on command - taking coins from the hands of audience members etc.

The whole area is open and called "free-flight".

Humour is brought in when the keepers face the audience explaining about the birds and how they prey upon mice - so there are no mice about.

Except for the line of little trained mice who walk along the fence behind the keepers at that point "unseen" by the keepers, but not us!

Really good that W and C are going to get to enjoy this - quite amazing show, and then the birds all fly around together for the finale, swooping over the audience's heads.

And Taronga will be open to the public when the Duke and Duchess are there according to this report, so easier opportunity to see W and C than Good Friday at the Royal Easter Show perhaps Oz posters.

Sun Lion.
