Want to Live Next to Royalty? Here’s the Perfect Opportunity For You to Set Up Home Near Prince William & Kate Middleton
While not everyone can live like or be a member of the royal family, commoners can still have the chance to live near them. How, you ask? Well, it just so happens that the Queen is renting out some of her properties and one particular home near Prince William and Kate Middleton’s home in Norfolk just became available.
The property in question is 20 Cherry Tree, Anmer which is reportedly located across the street from the future King and Queen’s home Anmer Hall. Located on the Sandringham Estate, the home is reportedly where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reside when they aren’t preoccupied with royal engagements.
This isn’t the first time though that the Queen has opened up her properties at the 20,000-acre Sandringham Estate for rent to the public. Back in 2015, two cottages were made available. One of them is the three-bedroom barn called The Granary which could accommodate up to six people. It could be had for a whopping $935 per night. It boasts of having its own private patio and an enclosed garden and lawn.
Meanwhile, there’s also the aptly-named Garden House, which the ground’s head gardener used to call home. Having the edge of one more bedroom, the cottage was available for rent at a slightly more expensive $974 a night. It boasts of views of the ornamental square garden found on the estate.
However, having Queen Elizabeth II and royalty as neighbors aren’t 100% positive. For one, the monarch reportedly bans all pet cats from all of her properties. The good news though is that she seems to take better to pet dogs as they may be allowed on a ‘house to house basis’.
Meanwhile, the Sandringham estate website also mentions that people who are living and working in the nearby area are preferred. Interested people can go to the same site for more information on the rental.
Another possible downside of living next to royalty is the constant noise from soirées and fireworks, as a former neighbor of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle observed from their days at Kensington Palace. After the couple’s move to Frogmore Cottage at Windsor, the same neighbor comments how ‘boring’ it’s been in the area as only helicopters can be heard there now.
Crown Estate Trouble
Also worth considering is the recent issues faced by the Crown Estate. According to reports, the corporation has received numerous complaints after evictions were served to tenants of the royal properties. Apparently, around 113 tenants have been evicted over the previous five years. The empty homes were then sold for profit. The Crown Estate gives 25% of what it makes to the Queen.
The revelation comes after taxpayers found out that they footed in £2.4 million ($2.9 million) for renovations made at Frogmore Cottage.
