Will is headed on vacation!

Kate Middleton may have gotten a head start with some fun in the sun on the island of Mustique, but as it turns out, her hubby Prince William isn't far behind.

"He's leaving tomorrow morning," a source tells Us Weekly. "It wasn't set in stone because William needed to clear the week of work first."

On Wednesday, the 30-year-old Duchess flew first class to St. Lucia with her parents, Mike and Carole Middleton, and her siblings, Pippa and James Middleton. After arriving in the Caribbean, the family made their way to the ultra-private island of Mustique, where they will celebrate Carole's 57th birthday (her actual birthday is Jan. 31).

This vacation may be the last bit of R&R that the Duke of Cambridge, 29, sees for a while. The Prince, who is a search-and-rescue co-pilot for the Royal Air Force, is scheduled to be deployed to the Falkland Islands, which is the center of fresh tension between Great Britain and Argentina, next month.
