Prince William and Kate Middleton were surprised with a cottage at Sandringham by the Queen
Prince William was reportedly surprised with a £25,000 portrait by wife Kate Middleton on his 30th birthday last week, which sounded pretty good to us. But now it seems the Queen has gone one better.
According to insiders, the monarch gave Prince William a cottage at her sprawling Sandringham estate for his big 3-0, which will be ready for use later this year.
It’s not known exactly which cottage thePrince was give on the 20,000-acre Sandringham estate.
But insiders say a property at one of the Queen’s favourite residences is ‘definitely being made ready’ for Prince William and Kate Middleton this summer.
‘He’s a country boy and loves Norfolk, just like his father and his grandparents. It’s a lovely, peaceful place and William adores it.’
Sandringham Castle is thought to hold special memories for Prince William and Kate Middleton, who spent their first Christmas together there, with the rest of the Royal Family last year.
