Future monarch Prince William was spotted, appropriately enough, on King’s Road in the late night hours of August 14, 2008 as he and girlfriend Kate Middleton were welcomed through the door of Raffles nightclub, the Daily Mail reports. Offering cave-like coziness with its black-painted walls, Raffles creates a party paradise for London’s elite, who can enjoy themselves away from the ever-watchful eyes of the paparazzi in the VIP area or at one of the private booths. While only time will tell if she will become an official part of the royal family, Kate Middleton was a “Dancing Queen” inside the popular hot spot, both her image and that of the royal reveler reflecting with those of other club regulars in the venue’s mirrored column until the wee hours of the morning.
Having recently completed a two-month stint with the Royal Navy, the regal romantic and his lady love are back in England’s capital after a getaway to the Caribbean island of Mustique, where the adventurous lovebirds tested their skills at wakeboarding when they were not enjoying the amenities at Villa Rocina. Situated on Endeavor Bay, the couple’s accommodations offered a living room which led to a private pool and a bedroom with windows that frame an ocean view. The mysterious beauty of Mustique has beckoned to the pair twice this year, with their May stay at Villa Alumbrera still fresh in their memories.
