After a day full of engagements yesterday, Will & Kate were back at it this morning in Cornwall – although the weather did throw a wrench into plans!
The first event of the day was to have been a helicopter trip to the Isles of Scilly. They were due to have spent the day visiting the three islands of St Mary’s, Tresco and St Martin’s – but the weather was quite rainy this morning and Kensington Palace quickly re-arranged plans to keep the Duke and Duchess busy by arranging a visit to the Eden Project, a popular biome eco-tourism attraction in Cornwall where visitors get a sense of plant life from different parts of the world.
William & Kate visited the rainforest dome and the Mediterranean dome (both of which would have been humid, not great for a rainy hair day!) and looked to have enjoyed doing so. There was even time for fun – more alcohol in the form of a baobab drink and a dinosaur puppet!
With the weather cleared up, the Duke & Duchess will now continue their trip to the Isles of Sicily, although it will need to be abbreviated. The first stop was a trip to Tresco Gardens. “At the least the rain is good for the plants”, joked William!
They then were off to St.Martin aboard a boat where we can definitely see the improved weather!
On St. Martin where they visited Sicily Flowers – a unique family business that specializes in winter blooms due to the climate.
Stay tuned for more updates!
