WAGS and families of England’s World Cup squad will stay on a luxury boat in Qatar so they can drink alcohol and avoid the country’s strict booze laws.
Alcohol cannot be consumed in public spaces and is only available in the privacy of select hotels.

Apartments and studios were offered to the travelling parties for when the tournament kicks off in November.
But the accommodation on offer was deemed to be not up to standard compared to the liner.
The rooms on the ship were considered much more in keeping with the lives of luxury that the Wags have become accustomed to.
A number of cruise ships and yachts will be stationed in the port close to Doha.
Families will be able to celebrate every England victory – assuming there will be some.
They’ll also be able to drown their sorrows if the Three Lions fail in the quest to land the first international trophy since 1966.
England’s stars will be staying in an alcohol-free hotel with a private beach.
Boss Gareth Southgate carefully picked the Souq Al-Wakra hotel.
It is based in the recently expanded fishing village of Al Wakrah ten miles south of Doha.
England have also secured the Saoud bin Abdulrahman Stadium as their training ground for the tournament.
