Over the sea to Skye

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were in high spirits at Portree, in the Isle of Skye, in the Highlands of Scotland on Thursday.


It was their first trip to the island since 2009 and they made the most of their return visit.

Of course they were dressed for the occasion in traditional tartan.

During their stay at the island, they tucked into fish and chips at the harbour from Portree fisherman Dan Corrgiall’s shop.

The royal couple, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay in Scotland, were serenaded by Gaelic singer Robert Robertson, the frontman for folk-rock band Tide Lines, in front of the backdrop of Ben Tianavaig.

He said: “It wasn’t nerve-wracking, the duke and duchess have a really down-to-earth way about them. And because they have attended the Royal National Mod, they have a real interest in that, and in Gaelic.

“It just felt like a really nice conversation, and it was a real pleasure.”

Their visit comes as the Queen has been staying at Balmoral Castle for her first summer holiday at her Scottish estate following the death of her husband Prince Philip in April.
