KATE, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William have proven their dedication to royal duties with their choice of vacation spot this summer.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have taken Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two, on holiday to the Isles of Scilly, after the royals spent months isolating in Amner Hall, their Norfolk home. As well as treating the children to a summer break, their choice of holiday destination shows how Kate and William are dedicated to royal duties.
The Isles of Scilly are an archipelago off the Cornish coast, in southwest England.
The islands are characterised by sandy beaches, beautiful subtropical plants and has become a popular tourist hotspot in recent years.
Kate and William’s choice of vacation spot highlights their dedication to royal duties, as they won’t need to quarantine when they return home – meaning they could choose to participate in engagements straightaway.
The Cambridges could have chosen to travel abroad for a summer break, as the Government removed restrictions on a number of popular travel destinations.

As well as removing advice against all but essential travel for dozens of countries, the Government also scrapped the requirement to quarantine for 14-days when returning back to the UK for 78 countries.
But the Government could decide to change its travel advice with little notice, which is what happened last weekend.
On Saturday evening it was announced that travellers arriving back from Spain would no longer be exempt from the quarantine measures – effective from midnight that evening.
Sources close to the Cambridges said this prompted them to take a UK break, as they were concerned about the potential need to quarantine when they got back.

A source said: “They decided on a quick getaway before the children return to school.
“They were keen to support our travel industry.”
If they did have to self-isolate they wouldn’t have been able to carry out their royal duties – which they’ve just started again following lockdown – and they weren’t willing to take the risk of missing engagements.
Most recently Kate and William met with four NHS workers at the Queen’s Sandringham estate.

The couple spoke with the key workers as they launched a £1.8million fund to support emergency workers and the nation’s mental health amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Duke and Duchess pledged the grants through ten charities at the heart of mental health and frontline support.
Earlier in the month Kate and William attended an afternoon tea party at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn to celebrate the NHS’s 72nd birthday.
The Duke also went for a pint at his local ahead of pubs reopening on July 4.
