In today's terminology, this is known as a babymoon (althought I'm not all that fond of the term). Babymoon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I actually think it's a good idea, especially as there are indications that they plan to be full-time royals soon - which is not a life I would wish on anyone, so more power to them.

I just can't wait for the photos of Kate placed side by side with the 20 year old photos of Diana, same stage of pregnancy, in her bikini.

And if Catherine feels up to travelling, she should do so and gather strength on holiday. And should not worry about people who are simply envious as if their negative feelings would change a thing except hurting the envious person herself.
I'm not envious at all, I'm off to the sun myself next week but I've actually earned my break.

From what we know, they also went there with the Middletons around the same time last year. Seems like this is fast becoming a yearly "Middleton tradition". Maybe in the future, they will bring their child(ren) along for annual holidays, complete with photocalls, like what many other royal families do.

I think William has earned his break too - he reportedly has been flying many, many hours recently.

Since when does someone have to earn a holiday? If I could afford it, I'd take a holiday whenever I darn well pleased, public/my boss's opinion be damned.

The Cambridges have earned their break too.

I think William & Catherine will continue to take vacations every year (or when they can) and with their children. It's something William is pretty much used to because Charles & Diana took the boys on vacations on a regular bases. Now the family is bigger.

Well, if this is true then fair enough. They can afford it, but it obviously means she is well enough to do work now.

It has been reported that Kate has been working, we just haven't seen it. My boss knows I do my work, even though he isn't standing behind me watching.

Whilst I agree nobody needs to 'deserve' a holiday, this couple haven't earnt it at all. William and Catherine clearly have no idea about public perception.

Gee William seems to have a pretty regular work schedule with the SAR which is his actual job. Are you suggesting that everyone in the SAR does not deserve to take a vacation or is it just William as an SAR pilot is not entitled to the same breaks/vacations as people holding the same job? Is he not entitled to take his wife on vacation with him?

This has been a Middleton tradition of a long time now. They always go around Carole birthday, has been since at least Kate was in College

Yes, but your job/position is not being watched by an entire population, nor are you spotted out in £££'s worth of clothing shopping, yet you are meant to be suffering from a debilitating sickness. I am merely expressing what a lot if people think. They can of course afford a holiday, I just don't think it helps the public's perception.

What public's perception? Other than the people on this forums and the daily mail, my understanding is that the public could care less
