Prince George is learning to swim on a luxurious family trip with his parents!

At seven-months pregnant, the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, and Prince William took what sources say is Kate's final trip—the babymoon!—before the Prince George's royal sibling arrives.

The destination of choice was the private island of Mustique, in the West Indies. The family has travelled there before, as you may remember from our roundup of the prince's favourite things (Mustique was one of them!); they took George there for his first trip ever almost exactly a year ago, when he was six months old.

As Us Weekly reports, this is a bit more than a babymoon. Kate and William have been using the two-week trip as an opportunity to teach 18-month-old George to swim. So, it's a big deal for the little guy, too.

"He loves splashing about," says an insider source for the mag. "It's the perfect place for him to play!"

By "perfect place," the source is referring to a private kids' pool at the royal family's luxurious villa—which, by the way, costs, ohhh, $26,000 a week (not including tax). No big deal. Heh. There aren't any pictures of this big event to share. But of course, I'll keep you posted on the Prince's progress.

When did your kids start learning to swim?
