The Coronavirus has forced the millions around the world to change their daily life, working routine and holiday plans. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are among those millions. Until recently, the Royal couple had been working from their country residence Anmer Hall in Norfolk since the last week of March and homeschooling their children.

Usually, at the end of July, William and Catherine along with their three kids spend quality time with Middleton family at Caribbean Paradise Mustique. Last year we got Prince George’s birthday pic from that vacation.

But this year the plans had to be changed. So, Prince William whisked his family off to a place that holds memories from his childhood and a place that he will inherit one day as The Duke of Cornwall – The Tresco Island. The Mirror reported that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their three children to the Isles of Scilly for a staycation, where Prince William went to as a kid with Prince Harry, Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1989.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said hello to locals as they cycled across the stunning island of Tresco. A holidaymaker today said: ‘William and Kate were riding their bicycles, having a laugh. They looked so happy enjoying the weather. I did do a double-take. They were really friendly and said hello.'”

The picturesque Island of Tresco is the second-biggest island of the Isles of Scilly in Cornwall, England. Part of the Duchy of Cornwall, Prince William will one day inherit this staggeringly beautiful island. Just 28 miles west of Cornwall, the island is accessible via boat or air only. The Cambridges took the short helicopter flight there and back from Newquay – a town on the north coast of Cornwall.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge travelled to the Isles of Scilly in 2016 for 2-days royal visit. He talked about his childhood vacations during the visit and said he will be back one day. And he did, this time with his children.

The family holiday will give a boost to the local tourism that has been badly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Island’s residents largely depend upon income from the tour and travel industry.

As part of holiday resort, 6-bedroom Dolphin house is available to tourists with a rent ranging from £2000 to £5000. The small island with just 175 residents is known for white sandy beaches, historic sites, warm local welcome and family-friendly activities.

We have seen from the recent family pictures that William and Catherine are fun parents and love spending time with children. Catherine has been long-standing champion of spending time outdoors with family and children. Tresco Island offers all of them in once place. I am sure the Cambridge kids had a great time at the family-owned holiday home and would like to come back again.
