Prince William and on-off girlfriend Kate Middleton touched down for their romantic holiday in the Seychelles this week.
The couple had hatched an elaborate plot ? involving a four-mile exclusion zone ? to keep their intimate break top secret.
Kate and Wills arrived at the capital, Victoria, from DIFFERENT countries on Thursday. They then took SEPARATE planes for the short flight to the exotic and secluded Desroches Island.
First to land, on a jet from Paris, was Kate, 25. She flew in at 7.15am and received no royal favors at the airport. Just like the other 250 passengers she was herded through immigration and had to pick up her own luggage.
Then pushing her trolley for 500 yards to a check-in desk, Kate had to wait a further 45 minutes for her internal flight to the Indian Ocean paradise.
Will, arrived on a flight from Kenya at 1.30 pm, where it is believed he had spent a few days with old flame Jecca Craig’s family. He emerged from the plane wearing a baseball cap and was taken through the fast-track immigration with his protection officers.
He spent ten minutes completing formalities before boarding a private jet to Desroches.
The week-long trip is being organized by the son of the Seychelles President, who is personally overseeing their stay. He has ensured they enjoy a week of tranquillity by banning tourists and fisherman and by setting up an exclusion zone around the four-mile long island.
Wills and Kate are staying at a top hotel where their room comes equipped with a king-size bed, satellite TV and terrace. The break is expected to cost William more than ?20,000.
A local source said: “William and Kate spent Friday snorkelling on a coral reef. They plan to have a relaxing weekend and are due go fishing this week.”
