In the ‘low-key’ summer vacation of Prince William and Duchess Kate

A meaningful holiday! prince william and Duchess Kate took their children on a summer vacation to the Isles of Scilly before the start of the school year.

“William and Kate brought George, Charlotte and Louis to the Isles of Scilly,” says one source only Us weekly. “It was a quiet last-minute escape, and the family didn’t stand out from the crowd. They visited the Abbey Gardens of Tresco, rode their bicycles, took a boat trip and went to the beach. ‘

The insider added that the Duke of Cambridge “wanted to give the children a taste of his upbringing.” prince charles and princess Diana took their sons William and Prince Harry as a child to the archipelago off the English coast of Cornwall.

“He had already told George, Charlotte and Louis so many great stories about the time he spent there with Charles, Diana and Harry during his childhood, and he wanted them to experience it for themselves,” the source explained. “Being in Tresco brought back so many fond memories.”

Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2, enjoyed the trip as much as their father as a child.

“The kids loved Tresco,” the insider noted. “George’s favorite part of the trip was seeing all the different plants and trees in the Tresco Abbey Gardens and getting on the boat.”

William and the Duchess of Cambridge, both 38, made their own visit to the islands in 2016, visiting the Tresco Abbey Gardens and riding boats along the coast.

The future king recently made another trip down memory lane when he remembered the worst gift he ever gave Kate, whom he married in 2011.

“I’ve given binoculars to my wife,” said William on Thursday, July 29, episode of BBC Radio 5 Live’s “That Peter Crouch” podcast. “She never let me forget that.”

William – who met Kate while studying at St. Andrews University in 2003 – explained that the incident occurred early in their courtship.

“I packed them. They were very nice, “he said. “I tried to convince myself. I was like, ‘But these are really great, see how far you can see! She looked at me and said, “It’s binoculars, what’s going on?” It was not going well. Frankly, I have no idea why I bought binoculars for her. ‘
