Prince recalls holidays with Diana on trip to Isles of Scilly

By Tony Jones

The Duke of Cambridge reminisced about family holidays on the Isles of Scilly when he met one of the islands' oldest inhabitants.

Prince William told 89-year-old Gladys Perkins how he enjoyed breaks with his mother Diana, Princess of Wales when a small boy. Mrs Perkins was one of dozens of inhabitants from St Martin's island who welcomed the duke and duchess to their picturesque home with its crystal blue waters and silver sandy beaches.

Foggy weather that delayed the royal helicopter had blown away to be replaced by brilliant summer sunshine and blue skies.

Earlier they surprised tourists at Cornwall's Eden Project by making a last-minute trip to the attraction.
