Prince Edward to visit Isle of Wight

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays at the end of the month might get to meet a member of the royal family during their time on the island.

The Earl of Wessex is taking a trip to the Isle of Wight in order to coincide with the Natwest Island Games being held there this summer.

He will be arriving on the Isle of Wight on June 29th and is set to meet athletes, sporting officials and volunteers during his two-day visit.

Among the venues to be attended by Prince Edward are Shanklin-Sandown Golf Club, Ryde High School and the Fairway Centre, which is holding the athletics.

The royal visitor is also set to view the restoration work at Newport Minster during his stay on the Isle of Wight.

Holidaymakers on the island wanting to learn more about its royal connections could head to Osborne House, which was a favourite destination of Queen Victoria.
