It was a pretty big deal last fall when Kate Middleton and Prince William moved into a newly remodeled, spacious apartment at Kensington Palace. It was supposed to be a great home base for the couple who had welcomed their son Prince George a few months earlier and it kept them right in the middle of the royal mix. While Kate loves her high fashion and often gives off the appearance of a London girl we’re now hearing that more than anything she wants to raise her family in the country.
According to the June 23rd print edition of Star Magazine Kate is rallying to make Anmer Hall, the country home that she shares with Prince William on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate their main residence. Queen Elizabeth gave this country mansion to Prince William for his 30th birthday. Apparently the idea of raising her kids in a quiet, peaceful setting nearly 100 miles outside of London is really appealing to the duchess. We already know that Kate seems to have a pretty clear cut idea of the kind of mother that she is aiming to be and it’s nothing like the royals that have come before her.
In fact even homeschooling is said to be an option that Kate and William are already seriously considering. Country life, no private schools- the next thing you know we’ll be hearing that Kate likes to make her own natural baby food! I’m sure spending this year in London and having to be in closer proximity to Camilla Parker-Bowles and her special brand of drama has only made Kate wish for a quiet life in the country even more!
Can you see Kate and William leaving Kensington Palace for a more peaceful family life in the country? Somehow for me it’s easier to envision Kate pureeing baby food than it is to imagine her caring about the overabundance of Ivory in the palace!
