  • In 2016, Prince William, Princess Kate, George and Charlotte jetted off to Pouydraguin, a village in Gers in the south of France. If your budget is a bit smaller, you can enjoy Pouydraguin from a charming cottage via Airbnb. © Thomas Dutour | Dreamstime.com
  • Pre-children, William and Kate enjoyed hitting the slopes, with two destinations of choice over the years — Klosters in Switzerland and Meribel in France. Beyond skiing for all skill levels, the former provides a wide selection of dining options and a nightlife scene. © Massimo Gherardi | Dreamstime.com
  • Princess Margaret built her own luxury villa in Mustique, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Les Jolies Eaux, however, is no longer a royal residence and you can rent the villa for upwards of $18,000 per week. © Robert Steiner | Dreamstime.com
