I was just thinking it was high-time we got the usual pictures filtering back from Mustique and had almost resigned myself to the possibility the mid-vacation shots were all we would get, when...Popsugar saved day:
At first glance, these look like shots taken several years ago as the Middletons and Cambridges left Mustique, but the addition of the bouncing, blond tot should set your mind at ease: these are new photos! The royals were snapped at the St Lucia airport catching their connecting flight back to Britain. Is that Mr. Security? Someone has suggested it is, but he doesn't look tall enough to me. I don't know.
You can see a collection of all the holiday shots, including new snaps of Michael and Carole, at Popsugar here. William and Kate left on Friday the 6th, which means they were on vacation for a solid two weeks. Kate should be tanned and relaxed for her day with Ben Ainslie this week...
In random royal news as we wait for Kate's next engagement on the 12th, Katie Storey, a reader of this blog (I think? I hope!) has launched a weekly podcast that takes a humorous angle on royal stories. There is a very clever guy who is the funny man, and they have several different polite perspectives on the monarchy. This morning I had it playing in the background as I made my coffee and oatmeal and puttered through emails. It is a bit edgy for the average royal crowd, I think, but I really found myself laughing quite a bit. It's fun, you should check it out.
