Prince William Recreates His Childhood Vacation With the Whole Family!

Prince William went on a nostalgic getaway with wife Kate Middleton and his kids at the Isles of Scilly, England.

Fellow tourists reportedly spotted both Prince William and Kate Middleton enjoying a bike ride together, per the Daily Mirror.

The Cambridges are on staycation!

The 38-year-old royal first met Catherine - with whom he has children Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2 - at university in Scotland and he revealed she still hasn't forgiven him for the present, which he gifted to her early in their courtship. "They were keen to support our travel industry". And it sounds like they're in excellent spirits: A bystander told the Mirror, "William and Kate were riding their bicycles, having a laugh". I was like, 'But these are really incredible, look how far you can see.' She was looking at me going, 'They're binoculars, what's going on?' It didn't go well. "I got one of my policemen to take a laser pen out with them". The family visited the Isles of Scilly, just off the south-west tip of England, this week--a throwback to William's childhood back in 1989 when he and brother Prince Harry visited the islands with their parents-Princess Diana and Prince Charles.

The choice of destination did serve a practical objective too.

The quick getaway trip holds sentimental value for their Cambridges since it's a vacation spot where a young Prince William and Prince Harry would visit with their parents as young boys. Current lockdown measures require Brits to quarantine at home for two weeks after visiting particular European countries, and that would be a major problem for the Cambridges, who have recently resumed their public duties as working royals.
