Duke and Duchess of Cambridge make it to Isles of Scilly despite heavy fog

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will finally make it to the Isles of Scilly today after poor weather meant they couldn't travel earlier.

Fog on the islands meant Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge were unable to fly this morning.

Instead they were given a tour of the Eden Project where they met a baby dinosaur as part of the project's 'Dinosaur Uprising' programme and took in the plants in the Rainforest and Mediterranean biomes.

While there's still excitement on the Isles of Scilly about the visit of the Duke and Duchess there's some disappointment in St Mary's.

The royal couple were due to have visited the island's gig club before meeting local food producers at the Taste of Scilly food festival but they have postponed that part of the visit after the earlier travel difficulties.

Yesterday William and Kate visited youth centres in Cornwall, Truro Cathedral and the Healey's Cornish cider farm near Newquay.

They also met youngsters surfing on Towan Beach who were using the sport to help improve their mental wellbeing.
