Autumn holidays in England – not to be missed by the royals either. Prince William and Duchess Kate traveled to the Isles of Scilly with the children. There they did not live in a magnificent and luxurious way, but in a rented small cottage.
Members of the royal family also need a break every now and then. Thus, Prince William, 38, and Duchess Kate, 38, spent their semi-finals with their three children on vacation. For this, the family chose not a luxury hotel, but a modest cottage in the Isles of Scilly, an archipelago outside Cornwall.
According to the British newspaper, The Sun, The five members of the royal family are said to have spent their stay in a picturesque four-bedroom stone house. The weather was cloudy most of the time, but according to the locals, they enjoyed it very much. A vacationer is said to have seen the family and stated: “At first we hardly noticed that they were an ordinary family on vacation who were eager to keep to themselves.” Kate and William have already traveled to the archipelago with Prince George (7), Princess Charlotte (5) and Prince Louis (2) in July.
The Isles of Scilly lie 40 kilometers from Cornwall, and only five of the 140 islands are inhabited – with a total population of about 2,150 people. Most of the land and a third of the homes belong to Prince Charles, 70, the Duke of Cornwall. Even in their childhood, brothers William and Harry (36 years old) often visited there with their parents. Harry is now more luxuriant in California with his wife Megan (39 years old).
