Kate Middleton reportedly wants to give her children as ‘normal an upbringing as possible’
Kate Middleton may have the life of luxury at her disposal but according to a royal source, she’s not fussed about the finer things in life, instead she wants to ensure her baby has a happy home.
While modifications to Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Georgian country mansion, Anmer Hall, are published it’s also been revealed what the focus of family life will be and it appears a more normal environment is firmly on the agenda.
A source close to the royals told The Mirror: ‘The Duke and Duchess want to give their child and any subsequent children as normal an upbringing as is possible.
‘They are not interested in a lavish lifestyle – they want to give their children the freedom to play and run around in the way they were able to. They plan to be hands-on parents and do not want lots of servants.’
In order to create the perfect home for their baby, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have put security and their privacy at the centre of their demands for renovations to the property on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate.
The insider added: ‘Their main concern is privacy – they want to make sure they can enjoy family life away from the spotlight and a secluded country home is perfect.’
They couple have enlisted Prince Charles’ favourite architect, Charles Morris to make the necessary changes and the Queen has already obtained planning permission. A new driveway will be created as will a garden room and pergola over the patio for privacy along with countless tress and shrubs.
Despite having 10 bedrooms in their new home the royals are not thought to be employing any servants aside from the occasional cleaner and a part-time nanny.
We hope William is good with a duster!
