With Christmas round the corner, we're all thinking about the best way to spend time with our loved ones.
As is Royal tradition, Kate Middleton and Prince William will attend St Mary Magdalene Church on Christmas Day as usual with other key members of the Royal Family and will then retire to spend the night at Sandringham estate.
It is known that the Cambridge’s have their own property on the estate which is just a five minute drive from the Queen, where they along with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will be staying over Christmas.
The family will stay in Anmer Hall in King’s Lynn when they go to Norfolk this month. Sandringham itself is a massive mansion with 775 rooms in total, including 19 staterooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 92 offices, 52 royal and guest bedrooms and even 78 bathrooms.
The breath-taking 18 th century building was previously the home of the Duke and Duchess of Kent and was gifted to the Cambridges by the Queen after their wedding in 2011. Since then, the couple split their time between there and Kensington Palace and spent much of the Coronavirus lockdown there.
Before they moved in, £1.5 million worth of renovations were made which included a conservatory, rerouting the driveway and redesigning the interior.
On their 10 th wedding anniversary, the Duke and Duchess released a virtual tour of the family’s garden in a video posted on Instagram. Fans saw features of the garden including a Wendy House, a vast lawn surrounded by plants and a wooden seesaw.
The Cambridges’ garden included a climbing frame, a climbing wall and swings for the children to play on, making the Hall seem like a warm, family home.
We even caught a glimpse of the doorway of Anmer Hall when the family stood outside clapping for the NHS last year during BBC’s Big Night In.
Much like the rest of the country, the couple spent much of lockdown working from home and engaging in many video calls. Luckily for us, this meant we caught a look at several different parts of their home in the background.
One particular call saw Will and Kate sat on a cream-coloured sofa with a sideboard containing family photos behind them.
The couple reveal brief glimpses via photos for royal fans to piece together. In the photo released for Princess Charlotte’s first birthday in 2016, she was pictured holding her toy dog sitting on a yellow and green gingham chair with cream walls and carpets clear in the background.
Anmer Hall cannot currently be visited by the public as it is a private home for the Duke and Duchess. Royal dans can, however, visit Sandringham, which has lots of lovely ground to walk around and a gift shop and café to check out, too.
While we cannot see the whole house, there are plenty of ways to piece together the family home via videos and photos from the Cambridges. It is sure they will enjoy the festivities this Christmas in their scenic family home.
