OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is getting used to international media attention and now he is getting tabloid headlines for vacationing with his family at an exclusive resort in the Caribbean.
The visit to Nevis, a small island that is part of the twin-island Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, was billed as a private family vacation, but it has become fodder for celebrity gossip website TMZ.
There was also room for some diplomatic business as Trudeau met, and was bid farewell at his Jan. 8 departure, by the prime minister of the islands, Timothy Harris, and the country’s foreign affairs minister.
Local newspaper the St. Kitts and Nevis Observer published a picture of the three men posing in front of a Government of Canada aircraft.
The paper said Trudeau spent 10 days on Nevis with his wife Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau and the couple’s three children, Xavier, Ella-Grace and Hadrien at an undisclosed location.
Since Trudeau became prime minister last year he has gained considerable exposure in the international media.
