KATE Middleton and Prince William are expected to return to the Bahamas for a family holiday after wowing George, Charlotte and Louis over FaceTime.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent two nights in the Bahamas during the final leg of their Caribbean tour – and in a speech William recalled “the best holiday ever” he had there with mum Princess Diana.

Kate and Wills have enjoyed a stay in the three-bedroom Penthouse Suite at The Cove luxury resort on Paradise Island with wrap-around ocean views.
It’s understood the couple were overheard thanking staff before jetting home tonight – saying they “couldn’t wait to come back with their children”.
“They said they have FaceTimed their children to show them the views, which blew them away, and that they can’t wait to come back with them,” a source told MailOnline.
“Hopefully William will be able to create the same happy memories with his family, that his own mother did with him.”
At a reception hosted by the Governor-General of the Bahamas, Sir Cornelius Smith, on day seven of the Platinum Jubilee Royal Tour of the Caribbean, Wills recalled fond memories of a holiday he took there with his late mum.
The Caribbean was one of Princess Diana’s favourite places for a getaway – and in 1993 she took William and Harry to the five-bedroom Casuarina Beach in the Bahamas.
In speech to assembled dignitaries, Prince William recalled spending his “best holiday ever” with Diana in the Bahamas.
“I came here with my mother as a child,” he said.
“Snorkelling around the James Bond wrecks off Nassau left me with the most vivid memory of your beautiful blue waters.
“For a young boy, obsessed with 007, it was the best holiday ever.”
Earlier, Kate told how she hoped the couple’s children would be able to experience the Bahamas’ stunning beaches “before too long” while speaking at an assembly at the Sybil Strachan Primary School in Nassau.
“I always think it is the simple things in life that bring the most joy: playing together, chatting to your friends at school, eating meals together, listening to each other’s stories,” the Duchess said.
“Our three children, George, Charlotte and Louis, all love being by the sea, so I hope they will be able to experience your clear waters and beautiful beaches before too long.”
They have visited Belize and Jamaica along the way, and today visited a church in the Bahamas to pay tribute to victims of a violent hurricane before heading to Grand Bahama to speak to youngsters at the island’s children’s home.
