On Jan. 9, Kate Middleton will turn 38 years old — and Prince William is already thinking of ways to celebrate the occasion. According to a recent report, now that the Christmas festivities are behind them, the Duke of Cambridge is focused on planning his wife’s birthday celebration.
“William wants to whisk their family away from it all on a no-expenses-spared trip to Mustique as a surprise for Kate. A big surprise!” a source told Life & Style. “They’ll stay in a $15 million, seven-bedroom mansion with an infinity pool, private chef, screening room, gym and tennis court.”

And while the kids — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — will be joining for the surprise getaway, Prince William wants to ensure that he and Kate spend some time alone as well. “William wants to ensure they get quality alone time as a couple, so he’s organizing spa treatments, a diving trip and surfing lessons for two,” the source added.
It sounds like the kids will have no problem occupying themselves while Mommy and Daddy are enjoying a trip to the spa. “George and Charlotte love Mustique — building sandcastles, swimming in the ocean, snorkeling and going on nature tours are just a few of their favorite activities,” the source shared. “And now that Louis is a bit older, he can get involved, too.”
The getaway sounds like a wonderful way to kick off the new year, as the couple has been busy participating in the traditional Christmas celebrations with Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family — something that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle opted not to share in this year. Instead, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent “private family time” with son Archie and Meghan’s mother Doria in Vancouver Island.
