This chapter discusses the time when Prince Charles was forced to move from his original residence on the Isles of Scilly, after a large parliamentarian fleet surrounded the island. Thanks to the arrival of a sudden storm the fleet was forced to retreat, thus giving Charles the chance to flee to a stronger and more remote royalist sanctuary, which was in Jersey. The succeeding paragraphs provide an outline of Charles' journey to France until the death of his father, King Charles I.

Keywords:   Isles of Scilly, Prince Charles, parliamentarian fleet, royalist sanctuary, King Charles I
