Kate Middleton and husband Prince William are doting parents to three adorable children; Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The family are known for their love of the outdoors, and thrifty young royal Kate is always encouraging the kids to play outdoors and make the most of nature, rather than staying indoors watching television.

The 39-year-old Duchess takes the same approach when it comes to their family holidays, preferring to keep things low-key and purse-friendly, despite their royal fortune.

William, 40, also isn't a fan of flashy trips away, and the couple have opted to take the kids on a wholesome summer staycation again this year instead of jetting off abroad.

There's one spot in Britain which has seen the royal family return to time after time, with Kate and William opting for the lesser-known south-west spot for two years on the trot.

Located in Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly is a favourite with the royal couple when going on holiday with George, eight, Charlotte, six, and Louis, three.

The family were spotted biking on Tresco Island in 2020 and a fellow holidaymaker who saw the royals at the time told The Sun: "We hardly noticed at first as they seemed a normal family on holiday intent on keeping themselves to themselves.

"The place where they were staying was quite modest and certainly not hugely luxurious."

They also aren't the first royal parents to take their kids there – Prince Charles and Princess Diana took both William and Harry to the islands in 1989.

Where are the Isles of Scilly and what's there?

The Isles of Scilly are located off the southwest tip of Cornwall, and is made up of five inhabited islands and another 140 uninhabited islands.

The five inhabited islands popular with both the Royals and general tourists are Tresco, St Mary's, Bryher, St Martin and St Agnes, with only around 2,200 people living across all five.

There's a huge variety of activities for visitors to choose from which include glass bottom boat tours, safari boat tours and watersports such as sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding.

The isle of St Mary's has a golfing club, a vineyard and winery, as well as bike rentals to get around the island.

Tresco is known for the Tresco Abbey Gardens which has 20,000 plants, and both St Mary's and St Agnes have gin distilleries which offer tours.

If you're more of a rum fan, St Martin's has its own rum distillery which you can visit.

Some of the isles' best beaches include Tresco's Appletree Bay beach, which boasts gorgeous white sands, and Great Bay beach on St Martin's is often voted one of the best in the UK.

How can you travel to the Isles of Scilly?

The Isles of Scilly aren't the easiest to get to, purely due to their remote location but it's possible to get there by ferry or by air travel.

Boats run from the Cornish town of Penzance to the Isles of Scilly six days a week during high season, but only twice a day – once in the morning and once in the evening – and the trip takes just under three hours.

To get there by air travel, you can board a Skybus place from Exeter or Newquay, with the journey taking anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, or you can book a Penzance Helicopter.
