Day 2 of the Royal visit to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly started off a bit later than usual because of poor weather conditions. Day 1 was focused in Cornwall. The Duke and Duchess started their day with a visit to the Eden Project in Cornwall, before moving on to the Isles of Scilly. They visited the islands of Tresco and St Martin’s, but were unable to make it to St Mary’s.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge started their day at the Eden Project in Cornwall. They went inside the Rainforest Biome, which is one of the world’s biggest undercover rainforest, and met one of the baby dinosaurs from their ‘Dinosaur Uprising’ programme. The couple also toured the Mediterranean Biome, which has plants from Mediterranean climates around the world.
The Duke and Duchess then moved on to the Isles of Scilly, where their first engagement was at the Tresco Gardens, where the Duke told the gardeners; “We finally made it, at least the rain is good for the plants!” After chatting with the locals, they moved on to the Island of St Martin’s, where they visited Scilly Flowers, before getting a warm welcome at St Martin’s Community Hall. They Duke and Duchess left the Isles by boat.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore patterned trousers from Gap with a white blouse and a navy blazer. She also wore her sapphire and diamond earrings. The Duke wore khaki trousers with a navy blazer.
