Is Angelina Jolie taking her Kate Middleton Royal wedding obsession to the next level? Reports are that engaged couple, Angelina and Brad Pitt are staking claim on a “palatial” home 21 miles outside London. They are renting the mansion while the family is in England for the next 15 months because of back to back movie schedules.
“[Brad and Angelina] have decided to settle into one property rather than move around because they are going to be in London for 15 months,” a source told E! News. “It seems better for the whole family if they have a proper base. They have been moved into a palatial mansion that resembles the White House on the exclusive Wentworth golf course in Surrey. It is in a beautiful, gated community, one of the most exclusive areas in the U.K.“
The mansion boasts of eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms, staff quarters, gazebo, garden, an indoor swimming pool and a playground for the children. And it has star clout since both Sir Elton John and Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, have stayed there.
Could this be the fairy tale backdrop Angelina had in mind when it was rumored she was using Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding as inspiration for her own?
As we reported on CDL a source said: “Angie is fascinated by Kate, and like the rest of the world she fell in love with her and William when she watched their wedding on TV with Brad and the kids. She would never make her own wedding public and wants a private event on a much smaller scale. But she loved the Britishness of Kate and William’s big day and wants to incorporate some of those very traditional elements into her own ceremony.”
There’s no news on when the beautiful pair are planning to get hitched although sources speculated it would happen at their French estate in the fall. But I think a summer wedding in the English countryside has just as nice a ring to it. How about you?
