Not everything can be controlled on a Royal Visit and the biggest of the uncontrollable factors would be the weather.
Today, Mother Nature saw fit to alter the Royal Itinerary.
So, after a bit more waiting the day got started with a visit to Eden Project.
The media did the best they could to provide coverage for the swiftly made new arrangements, but it was a challenge.
The Eden Project is not only a popular eco tourist attraction in Cornwall but an enterprise and a charity. Inside the two biomes are plants that are collected from many diverse climates and environments. The complex is dominated by two huge enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house thousands of plant species, and each enclosure emulates a natural biome.
Fortunately the weather cleared up enough that Kate and William could visit two of the three Scilly Islands as planned. Below you see them at the renowned Tresco Abbey Gardens.
