They’ve spent the summer darting around the world, their family in tow, performing their On The Run II joint tour.
But it was all about family time – and then alone time – for Beyoncé and Jay-Z on Tuesday, as they took to the seas around Capri, Italy, for a sun-drenched afternoon in the sunshine.
With their three children with them – Blue Ivy, six, and twins Rumi and Sir, one – the Carter family were seen hanging out by the on-board hot tub, and enjoying quality time as a family over lunch.
The singer and her rapper husband tend to splash the cash when it comes to their holidays, with the chartered yacht – known as the Kismet – being worth an eye-popping £180million (£160million).
The famous pair looked relaxed as they enjoyed the amenities of the luxury vessel, with Beyoncé, 36, wearing a flowing sun robe and a flamingo pink sun hat on the boat’s deck.
She eventually removed the robe, showcasing her famous curves in a pink one-piece bathing suit, adorned with a floral rose pattern.
She was seen stepping into the hot tub with her husband, 48, who was seen reclining back and enjoying the sea air.
With them was youngest child, Rumi, who looked ready for a splash in the waters in a cute baby swimming costume.
Beyoncé cradled her daughter in her arms as she stepped into the tub with Rumi.
The Dangerously In Love singer wore her long locks loosely, cascading down from her sun hat, her gold-tinted strands falling in light ringlets.
Jay-Z wore a pair of dark shades and a black baseball cap for the dip in the hot tub. He also added a loud pair of yellow swimming shorts to complete his sailing get-up.
The pair enjoyed a chat with Rumi in Beyoncé’s arms, before being handed to one of the other boat guests so she and Jay-Z could spend some one-on-one time together, alone.
Beyoncé was seen sipping white wine and then nestling up to her other half, leaning back on his torso and enjoying the afternoon sunshine.
They enlisted the help of a member of the crew to snap images of the couple in the hot tub.
The pair are well-known for their love of the finer things in life, with Beyoncé’s most recent track, Boss, hearing her boast of the fact that her ‘great-great-grandchildren already rich’.
The couple, who earned a reported $147million (£131million) last year alone, have been spotted on the jaunt around the Amalfi coast where they have been enjoying the spoils of the yacht, owned by US billionaire Shahid Khan, who is also the owner of NFL team the Jacksonville Jaguars, and includes luxuries including a beauty salon and on-boat cinema.
While they looked every inch the low-key, relaxed family unit, their surroundings were the surefire giveaway that they are one of the world’s most famous families thanks to the matriarch and patriarch’s A-list status.
Breathtaking shots snapped around the yacht show just what the couple were surrounded by, with the multi-level pool sprawling out for family splashabouts.
The Kismet yacht, valued at over $180million, is 312ft long and boasts a multi-level swimming pool and a helipad/basketball court.
Self-made billionaire Khan, who moved to the United States from Pakistan at the age of 16, also owns Championship team Fulham.
The inside of the yacht was crafted by Reymond Langton, an award-winning Bath-based super-yacht designer. The exterior meanwhile was designed by Espen Oeino, a designer and naval architect.
Descriptions of the vessel on insider website, Yacht Charter Fleet, read: ‘As one of the largest and most sophisticated superyachts available for charter, KISMET is the ideal choice for those looking to experience a premier luxury vacation whilst enjoying the very best in design and amenities…
‘Truly dynamic, KISMET allows guests to relax or entertain in unparalleled style and in a distinctly unique setting… Asked to create a compelling and distinct interior based on a ‘Champagne & Caviar’ theme…
‘Reymond Langton Design have arranged both the social and private spaces to remain suitable whether guests are throwing a glamorous party or simply relaxing over a few drinks.’
While the famous duo lived it up on the yacht, back on dry land, Khan’s £1billion deal to buy Wembley could still be thwarted after the FA confirmed they will hold a ‘full and open sale process’ if selling the stadium is viable.
In light of concerns that the FA risk under-selling Wembley if they were to accept the first proper bid, they have made clear they will seek additional offers to ensure value is maximised. Yet local MP Barry Gardiner has warned that a move to push the price up could drive down subsequent investment from the buyer in the area.
