The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their children George, seven, Charlotte, five and Louis last week on a trip to the Isles of Scilly.
The family were seen “enjoying the good weather” and stopping to greet fellow vacationers as they passed through Tresco last Thursday.
William is no stranger to the beauty spot, having visited the same island with his brother Harry and parents Charles and Diana as a child in June 1989.
He also toured the island with Kate in 2016, with footage showing the couple boarding a boat for St Martins after visiting the Tresco Abbey garden.
The photo released today looks like the one released in April to mark the anniversary
