Summer living at Prince William’s favourite childhood getaway.

Prince William and Kate Middleton have whisked their kids away to Isles of Scilly, a pretty archipelago just off the English coast.

The family are vacationing on the stunning island of Tresco, where William’s dad, Prince Charles, owns a home – and where Wills and brother Harry often stayed with their parents as children, HELLO! reports.

The duke and duchess were spotted cycling around the island with Prince George (7), Princess Charlotte (5) and Prince Louis (2), the family looking for all the world like ordinary holidaymakers as they enjoyed the great outdoors.

The island sits 48 km west of Land’s End in Cornwall and is home to silver sands and entrancing hidden coves.

According to Town and Country, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the island in 2016, touring the Tresco Abbey [NW1] .

During the 2016 trip, William reminisced on the treasure trove of memories he had on the Isles as a child.
