Prince William And Kate Middleton have been given the green light for renovations to their country home. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge requested the renovations so they could ensure greater privacy while expanding the home’s accommodations.
The Royals are renovating Anmer Hall, a Georgian mansion and one of more than 100 properties located on Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham estate in north Norfolk. The home sits on a swatch of Royal land that includes more than 20,000 acres.
Anmer Hall also happens to be the same residence where Prince Charles conducted his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles.
While plans for the renovation have been approved, the Royal family has not yet confirmed that Prince William And Kate Middleton will be moving into the home. Anmer Hall is currently being rented to tenants. Rumors circulated in January that Queen Elizabeth gave the home to her grandson and his wife. It is believed that Kate and William were seeking a home for their growing family.
Among the homes new additions is a garden room that will take advantage of the homes amazing views.
Already under renovation is the couple’s London home, Apartment 1a at Kensington Palace. William and Kate are modernizing their London home.
Now is the perfect time for the couple to get their home affairs in order. Prince William is expected to announce his plans for the future in the coming months. Some observers believe he will continue his work with the British military; others believe he may take on royal duties in some type of capacity.
Amner Hall was likely chosen because of its already decent privacy. Kate Middleton was the victim of a topless and bottomless photo scandal in 2012, which explains why the already private estate will receive even more privacy renovations.
Are you surprised by the couple’s decision to move into and renovate the home where Prince Charles had his affair?
