Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Their Kids Go on Vacation to the Isles of Scilly

·2 min read

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seem to be establishing a summertime tradition. According to Hello!, the royal couple took their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, on vacation to the Isles of Scilly, an archipelago off the coast of Cornwall. The group made the same trip last year at this time, as well.

As international travel restrictions remain in flux due to the pandemic, the Duke and Duchess decided to stick close to home for their vacation. The pair made the same choice in 2020, taking their children to Tresco Island, the only one of the Isles' five inhabited islands that's privately owned. The family was spotted biking around Tresco, taking a quick trip before school started up again. This year, however, royal-watchers aren't quite sure exactly which island the Cambridges decided to visit.

The archipelago as a whole holds special significance for the Duke and Duchess. The couple visited the Isles in 2016, riding boats, meeting locals, and taking a helicopter. Even prior to these trips, though, Prince William visited the Isles when he was young, alongside his parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles, and brother, Prince Harry. Photos from the 1989 trip show the group riding bicycles and exploring the Isles.

The Cambridges have been laying low for the past few weeks. Their last outing was to the European Championship soccer final in mid-July. William and Kate brought Prince George to the event and he looked so grown up in a tiny blazer and tie. The heir to the British throne turned 8 years-old last week, as celebrated in a new photo, taken, of course, by his mother. Part of the family also made another public appearance on Father's Day, where Prince George and his sister, Princess Charlotte, joined their dad to kick off a half-marathon Father's Day race at Queen Elizabeth's Sandringham Estate.
