Oh to be royal...

The Cambridge family are enjoying a much-needed holiday in Mustique, following a packed few months of royal babies, weddings and duties.

Yes, now that Prince Louis has arrived and Meghan and Harry have tied the knot, the family of five has taken the moment to jet off to the Caribbean island for some serious R&R.

Luckily, despite being new parents, the couple were even able to enjoy some alone time, partying late into the night, thanks to the extended Middleton family coming along - and being able to babysit!

Of course this holiday was a personal one, but the couple travels a lot on behalf of the Queen, and when they do, they have an impressively sized entourage to ensure everything runs smoothly.

But how many people are in Kate Middleton’s standard travel entourage?

Well, as it turns out, a hell of a lot.

Going by their past royal trips, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seem to travel with around a dozen people, from hairdressers to press officers.

Kate tends to bring a stylist, taking Natasha Archer to their 2016 tour of Canada, a hairdresser, in the past taking Amanda Cook and of course the family nanny, Maria Teresa.

Other essential members of the royal entourage would be Kate’s private secretary, William’s private secretary and some press officers, with there also bound to be a tour secretary or manager in the team.

And now that Prince Louis is here, we wouldn’t be surprised if the entourage has grown even more!

What we would do for a royal travel entourage!!
