Just like the rest of the UK, Prince William and Kate have been practising social isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the couple has brought their three children George, Charlotte and Louis to their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, where they are safer.
However, now, as the restrictions are being lifted, the royals have slowly started returning to their normal life. For example, Prince Charles and Camilla have already returned to London and resumed their in-person duties.
But, most likely, Prince William and Kate won’t follow in their footsteps and won’t be returning to the capital anytime soon. And there are a number of reasons for this.
Firstly, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have started their summer break from school. Prince William and Kate had been homeschooling their two eldest children during the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the restrictions easing up, there is now no reason to return to London until September, when the new school year will begin.
Secondly, Anmer Hall is where the Cambridges usually spend their summer break. They have done so since 2017 after William completed his work as a pilot for East Anglian Air Ambulance, and the Kensington Palace became their primary residence.
Anmer Hall is located nearby Sandringham House on Sandringham Estate, far from the prying eyes of any media or the public, making it the perfect private retreat. The special property was a wedding gift from the Queen when the pair married in 2011. Shortly after the wedding, it was completely renovated, at a cost of around $2 million.
Earlier this year, Kate has revealed that her favourite times with her family are “outside in the countryside and we’re all filthy dirty”. So, Anmer Hall is the perfect place for some family fun time.
