On Prince William‘s 30th birthday last June, it was reported that His Royal Highness was given a charming cottage a size of castle named, “Anmer Hall” by none other than his loving grandmother, the Queen. The said birthday “gift” is located on the 20,000-acre Sandringham estate near King’s Lynn in Norfolk.
We don’t even want to ask how much it’s worth. Although, we must say, some birthday it must’ve been for Will!
Word has it that since Kate is now expecting her first child and since the royal couple’s lavish Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace is still under renovation, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has decided to generously make use of the cottage. Ah, but what better environment to be in anyway as they prepare for the birth of their first child? Right?
The Sandringham estate has been owned by the Queen since her accession in 1952 and it has been with the Royal Family since 1862.
