When Kate Middleton decided on a romantic holiday as a treat for Prince William's June 21 birthday, she wanted their break to be as private as possible.
So the brunette beauty made the booking, in a holiday home near the medieval town of Fowey in Cornwall, under the names Mr and Mrs Smith.
The couple were joined on the trip by a group of pals, including Prince Harry, who joined them for a barbeque on Friday night to mark Wills' 27th birthday. The group then enjoyed a picnic near the Polkerris holiday park in Par on Saturday, although the Princes moved to the Royal British Legion club to watch the British and Irish Lions take on South Africa in the rugby.
