Kate Middleton and Prince William are teaching Prince George how to swim.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are enjoying a babymoon in Mustique while they celebrate her mother's 60th birthday and soak up their last few months alone with little George before Kate gives birth in April.

The couple are staying at Aurora Villa, where they have rented the entire property for privacy, and the 18-month-old royal was reportedly receiving swim lessons in the estate's private pool, according to Us Weekly.

“He loves splashing about,”  a royal source told the magazine. “It's the perfect place for him to play!”

"This will be their last big trip before the baby is born in April."

Their luxury villa costs €34,000 a week to rent and includes five full-time staff.

While the young royals are enjoying a last-minute holiday before the new arrival, this weekend was all about Carole's milestone birthday bash.

It's believed that tight security resulted in several notable absentees from the invite list, including her son James and daughter Pippa's other halves, tv presenter Donna Air and stockbroker Nico Jackson.

"It’s just a question of protocol really. It’s a bit of a family lockdown as it always is when William and Kate are involved," an insider told the publication.
