Prince William enjoys a nostalgic family vacation on the island, where he went on vacation with Charles and Diana


They have captured the nation's mood in the past difficult months with its reserved looks and thoughtful comments.

And when it comes to their summer vacation, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge seem to have done it again – they chose to stay at one of William's favorite family destinations to help the British travel industry.

They spent the week on tiny Tresco in the Isles of Scilly and stayed at Dolphin House, a beautiful six-bedroom property owned by Prince Charles.

It's a well-known target for William, who is known to grin shyly when he was pictured there in 1989 with Princess Diana, Prince Charles, and brother Harry.

But this was not just a family nostalgia trip for William – one day he will inherit Tresco, which is part of the Duchy of Cornwall and belongs to his father, the Duke of Cornwall.

The visit commemorates Williams' growing status in the royal family.

As Prince Charles takes on more and more of the Queen's official duties, William prepares himself to play a higher role within the family and family business.

He has made several trips to the Duchy with his father, and Charles has long encouraged William to be interested in how it works and his portfolio of land, financial investments, and real estate.

In the past few years, William has accompanied his father to meetings of the Duchy of Cornwall, delved into the business of the property and praised his father in the ITV documentary on this subject last year.

Regarding the success of Charles’s administration, he said: “I started to think about how I will inherit the Duchy someday and what I will do with it. I think it's really important when it comes to the family aspect, I really do. & # 39;

William will have a huge private income when he finally takes over – and the financial gap that will open between him and his brother Harry is said to have irritated Harry's side.

While the difference in status is something that the younger brother can do little about, he gets more evident every year.

It is William who attends private meetings with his father, high-ranking courtiers, and sometimes the queen, to discuss how the family works and his future role as king. Harry can only watch.

As his brother Harry adapts to life in Los Angeles, Williams' traditional family vacation is another sign of his determination to raise his children as normal and homely as possible for as long as he can.

William remembered this childhood vacation on Tresco four years ago, in August 2016, when he officially visited the Scillies. He then promised to return soon – one that he kept.

Dolphin House is just a few feet from the ocean, so Kate and William can take their buckets and spades to the beach with George, Charlotte and Louis, now seven, five and two.

The family went on a bike ride around the car-free island and was seen smiling and talking to the residents.

Back at Dolphin House, they could have enjoyed total privacy behind the 10 foot thick granite walls of the former rectory and maybe a barbecue in the large garden. The house with its narrow hedges and untouched subtropical flower edges exudes calm luxury.

Mind you, it could break the budget of many young families – renting for a week in high season costs around £ 5,000.

The island, a square kilometer with only 175 inhabitants, can only be reached by sea or air, so the Cambridges took the short helicopter flight back and forth from Newquay.

After the Royals left Tresco's helipad on Thursday afternoon, a local viewer said: “William and Kate both smiled broadly and looked very happy and relaxed. Her bodyguards also had a big smile – it was clear to see that it had been a really good vacation. & # 39;

A resident of the Isles of Scilly said to The Mail on Sunday: “Dolphin House is truly an idyllic and humble family home.

"Kate, William and the kids will certainly have made the most of how peaceful it is, and the islanders have made sure that they are left alone and their trip is not disturbed."

A royal source said: “You decided to take a short vacation before the children returned to school. They wanted to support our travel industry. & # 39;
