New reports suggest that Kate Middleton, Prince William and Prince George's latest home, Anmer Hall, is to be kept under armed surveillance 24 hours a day when Prince William returns to work in September.
Around fifty armed guards are apparently being recruited to join the Queen's current security team to help protect new mum Kate alongside the future third heir to the throne.
The hall, a grade-II listed property, resides on the Queen's private Sandringham estate in Norfolk and has recently been refurbished for the Duke, Duchess and Prince of Cambridge's arrival when they leave Kate's parents' home in Bucklebury. Renovations include a garden room and the conversion of wood stores into accommodation, thought to be for the residential security force.
There's no doubt that Prince William will be glad of the protection for Kate Middleton and their newborn, as he will be starting his new position in the Blues and Royals cavalry regiment, situated some distance away in Hyde Park, London.
