Kate and Prince William ‘whisked kids to private island for summer holiday’

Kate Middleton and Prince William have reportedly whisked George, Charlotte and Louis away to a private island for a UK summer holiday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have once again opted for a staycation for their annual summer holiday, and are believed to have taken their children to Tresco, part of the Isles of Scilly, for the a third year running.

The islands off the coast of Cornwall, which are known for their beautiful beaches, are clearly a place they very much enjoy seeing as the royals have decided to carry on returning year after year.

Their holiday destination was revealed by the Mail on Sunday, which claims the Cambridges spent two weeks on the island.

Joining them on the holiday was their black spaniel Orla, the report added – and the family stayed in a rectory that comes complete with a walled garden.

William and Kate hinted that they had enjoyed a staycation rather than a holiday abroad when they released a new picture to mark George's ninth birthday last month.

The snap, taken by Kate, shows the youngster giving a big grin amid a beach scene – and Kensington Palace said it had been taken on a family break in the UK.

However, it was not revealed where in the UK this family break had taken place – although some royal fans guessed it could have been on the Isles of Scilly.

The Cambridge's decision to holiday in Scilly mirrors William's parents, who also taking visited the archipelago for holidays there in the past.

In June 1989, William was pictured on the islands wearing shorts and a red jumper on a bike ride with Prince Charles, Princess Diana and Prince Harry.

And in 2016, William returned to the islands with Kate on an official trip, where they visited the island of St Martins as well as Tresco Abbey Garden.

It is also believed that Kate and William took the family to the Isles of Scilly in October 2020 and stayed in a modest cottage.

The Isles of Scilly are an archipelago of 28 islands off the southwest of Cornwall.

However only five of the islands – St Mary's, Tresco, St Martin's, Bryher and St Agnes – are inhabited.

Charles is the owner of the Duchy of Cornwall estate, of which the Isles of Scilly are a part.
