England's Prince William and his expectant wife Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, are vacationing on the tony Caribbean island of Mustique, part of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines chain.

Us Weekly said Tuesday it had confirmed a story first reported in the British press that Prince William, 30, and the Duchess, 31, flew out days ago to join her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton.

E! Online added that the young couple were staying at a villa that rents for $30,000 a week, while her parents are staying at a separate home.

The prince and Middleton, now over her bouts of morning sickness, were planning to attend the "Jump Up" party at the island's Basil's Bar Wednesday, Us added.

Kensington Palace had no comment.

The couple, who were married in April 2011, honeymooned in the Seychelles, an island country in the Indian Ocean northeast of Madagascar. Their child is due in July.
