Prince William gets permission from Kate to go on stag holiday in Devon


Prince William has taken a break from dad duties and is on a boozy stag weekend in Devon.

The Sun reports that Kate Middleton gave her hubby permission to go on the weekend break with 15 of his friends.

A passenger who saw the stag party take the train from London Paddington to Exeter St Davids told The Sun: "I walked through the carriage on the way to the buffet car and spotted William with a bunch of chaps swigging beer like it was going out of fashion.

"The tables were covered with cans and miniature bottles of gin and one chap seemed to be wearing gold lamé shorts."

According to the Evening Standard, William, who was wearing chinos and a smart shirt, returned to work with the Royal Air Force last week after taking paternity leave.

And it seems Princes William and Harry have swapped roles, as while Wills is on a boys' break in Devon, his party-loving brother Harry is reportedly planning a romantic getaway with girlfriend Cressida Bonas in Botswana.

The Mirror reports that Harry, 28, is whisking Cressida off on an African safari.

A friend told the newspaper: "He's hoping the African trip with friends will enable them to relax and get to know each other better."
