Most royal fanatics know that Prince William and Kate Middleton are based at Kensington Palace, but they also have Amner Hall, their country resident in Norfolk.
Now, CambridgeshireLive is reporting that the couple — who share Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3 — have another home in Scotland.
The home, which is apparently called Tam-Na-Ghar cottage, is very remote, has three-bedrooms and sits on 50,000 acres of land. It was reportedly gifted to Prince William by his late great-grandmother, the Queen Mother, before she died in 2002, the outlet reported.
The humble abode is apparently so private that there are very few photos of it.
William and Kate reportedly visited the home when they were students at St Andrew's University and even took their three tots there in 2019 for a getaway. "The Queen has a lot of guests coming and to ease the pressure the Cambridges are likely to stay at the cottage," a source told Vanity Fair, referring to the Queen's Balmoral Estate. "That could have added benefits for everyone as it means more space in the castle.”
The pair usually take their children to Scotland for the summer, and author Katie Nicholl believes this will become a tradition going forward.
"Summer holidays at Anmer are the perfect way for Kate and William to decompress," she told OK!. "If there are royal engagements for them, they’ll be few and far between. While in the past we’ve seen the couple enjoy more lavish holidays skiing or visiting sunnier climates, they’ve been adopting a more traditional royal approach and spending their time at royal residences in the U.K. instead. This could obviously be the result of Covid travel restrictions, but I also believe that Kate and William are transforming into the future King and Queen, and therefore, are adopting more traditional practices."
