Kate Middleton and Prince William could have their sights set on a new country retreat after the Queen ordered renovation work to begin on a Georgian mansion in Norfolk.
According to The Daily Express, the Queen has scheduled improvements on the 10-bedroom mansion on the Sandringham estate, thought to be the possible new home for Prince George.
The majority of the work will create more privacy for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, while ‘dozens of armed officers’ are currently providing security until the private entrance is complete. Meanwhile work is already underway on a car park and path for the neighboring St. Mary’s church.
'Nothing is official but the fact that work has started is a clear indication the house is being made ready,' a source told the Express. The paper also reports that the Queen has asked Anmer Hall's current tenant to vacate, despite having four years left on his lease.
With Kate and Wills' Anglesey retreat back on the rental market, they are scheduled to move into a 21-room Apartment in Kensington Palace. Anmer Hall will then provide the perfect country getaway with a swimming pool, tennis court and thousands of acres of farmland for the young family to enjoy.
