Kate Middleton’s parents Carole and Michael enjoy holiday on Mustique island

According to sources cited by HELLO!, Michael Middleton and Carole Middleton arrived in Mustique, but the report notes that their daughter and son-in-law haven’t joined them yet.

Carole Middleton’s birthday will be celebrated on the Caribbean island, as she turns 61 on January 31.

Last year, Kate and William were accompanied by the Middleton family on the beautiful island around the same time.

The Caribbean island is the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s favorite vacation destination.

Jeweler Martin Katz, who met the royals on the island of Mustique back in 2008, revealed that they were very down-to-earth.

“I was standing at the [hotel] bar ordering one of the fancy drinks and Kate actually came up to the bar and was quite pleasant and chatty,” he told People magazine. “She couldn’t be more friendly and more open.”

Katz also enjoyed chatting with Prince William.

“We started talking about scuba diving. They had gone that day or the day before, and while I was talking, I was holding a glass of fruit punch and it slipped from my hand and crashed to the floor and sprayed all over the prince’s feet. He was in flip-flops,” Katz said. “I was mortified of course, but all I heard was, ‘That was quite refreshing, thank you.’ His mother would have been quite proud that he handled himself with such dignity.”

Last year Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, obtained the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Advanced Open Water Diver qualification.

So now during her vacation on the mesmerizing island she can dive up to a depth of 98ft.

Kate Middleton and Prince William hire cottage garden expert for Anmer Hall

According to The Sun, Kate and William have hired Robin Parker, a cottage garden expert, in order to help them grow their own vegetables.

“He’s helping [the Duchess] become more self-sufficient. She loves cooking stuff she’s grown,” a friend of the royal mother-of-two said, adding, “It’s all a bit like Barbara and Tom in BBC TV comedy The Good Life.”

Last year in November, the Daily Mail reported that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, loves to grow organic vegetables at their country home. The publication also wrote that she is planning to launch an organic food line and that the profit from it would go to charity.

Prince Charles already has his own line of organic food and the profit from the sales is donated to his charities.

The Duchess of Cambridge may count on help from her son George, 2, when gardening, as the little Prince has already helped his grandfather to plant two trees at Prince Charles’ house, Highgrove House, in Gloucestershire.

Olivia Munn clarifies Aaron Rodgers engagement rumors

The actress, 35, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, January 27. The 35-year-old talked about recent rumors claiming that she is set to marry the Green Bay Packers quarterback, 32.


“We’re not engaged,” Munn told Ellen. “Not engaged.”

“How did something like that get started?” the talk show host, 57, asked the actress.

“It was just a magazine that said it,” she said. “And then everybody started going with it. It was kind of strange. I mean, I didn’t think anybody believed it until like my family started texting me. My sister said, ‘this is so stupid. Why would anybody think that something like… You’re not engaged, it’s so stupid.’ And then the next text after that was, ‘but seriously are you engaged because like I’m seeing it everywhere?’ and no, we’re not engaged.”

“So your mother obviously didn’t believe it…” the comedian added.

“She did believe it, but now I was able to correct her and she knows for sure that it’s not… as soon as I say no it’s not true she believes it,” Olivia explained.

This isn’t the first time that the Ride Along 2 actress shot down speculation that her boyfriend asked her to marry him, as she addressed those rumors a few days ago on Instagram.

“Answering yes or no to personal questions can be tricky because if you say ‘No’ it means whenever you say ‘No comment’ that kind of becomes your default ‘Yes’. But since I’m doing press for the next few days, I didn’t want to have to answer the same question over and over. So instead, I’m going to let my text conversation with my Asian mom help me out.✌️#Colberto,” she wrote after sharing a text conversation with her mother.

Olivia Munn and Aaron Rodgers have been dating since May 2014. The X-Men: Apocalypse actress had previously been in a relationship with Swedish-American actor Joel Kinnaman for two years.

She has this amazing aura when she walks in the room […] before we actually said ‘hello’ we had to act right in front of her.”

“It was a little bit nerve-racking and I got a bit jittery. So she came over to say ‘hi’ afterwards, and I said ‘Hello, lovely to meet you’ and she said ‘It feels strange being in your bedroom,’ because we’re standing in Lady Mary’s bedroom and I said ‘yeah not very many people get to come in Lady Mary’s bedroom’ and then I thought ‘Oh god, what have I just said?'” Froggatt said.
