The recession coupled with the festive season might be causing heartburn to many commoners but the third in line to Britain's throne Prince Harry seems to be having a ball as usual.
In the face of an economic downturn even the Queen has asked her family to rein in their conspicuous spending.
But Prince Harry is apparently not an obedient grandson as he is taking girlfriend Chelsy Davy off to a USD 1389-a-night beachfront suite on a romantic tropical island for a week reports 'Daily Mail.'
"Guests at the resort want for nothing. It really is the height of luxury," revealed a source at the resort.
The 24-year-old royal plans to ring in the New Year with his girlfriend on the honeymooners paradise of Mauritius. He will meet up with Davy and her family, parents Charles and Beverly and her brother Shaun, who are spending Christmas in Mozambique - for their luxury holiday.
Zimbabwean-born 23-year-old Davy is studying for a post-graduate law degree at Leeds University and sources close to the the couple say that they both look forward to a luxurious week.
