Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoy Maldives holiday ahead of tour to Australia and New Zealand

<![CDATA[The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have flown to the Maldives for a holiday to enjoy some rest ahead of their tour to Australia and New Zealand next month.
Prince William and his wife Kate were spotted landing in the country's main airport on a British Airways flight on Thursday morning, local media reports.
According to the reports, it appears the royal couple may have left Prince George at home as there was no sign of him as they arrived at the aiport before being whisked away by security.

The couple’s romantic getaway comes just a month before they will travel to New Zealand and then to Australia for a three-week tour.
Kensington Palace has confirmed that William and Kate will be joined by their son Prince George on the historic visit and it is likely the future King will make a few appearances along the way.
Ahead of the tour, the couple have been busy preparing while carrying out royal duties and looking after Prince George.
Last month, Kate took a break from maternity leave to carry out a series of engagements solo and one with the Queen. The Duchess joined the monarch at Buckingham Palace for a reception to celebrate the dramatic arts.
Prince William has also been continuing with 10-week agricultural course at Cambridge University, and helping Kate with parental duties.
Earlier this week, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the leaving party of royal doctor Sir Marcus Setchell, who had a farewell gathering at the Hyde Park Hilton.
