Kate Middleton and Prince William spend most of their time in their official residences – Kensington Palace and the Anmer Hall estate in Norfolk. But the press found out that the couple also has a secret mansion.

According to Express, the Tam-na-Gar cottage, which is located on the territory of the Balmoral estate, was presented to Prince William by her great-grandmother, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, shortly before her death in 2002.

Catherine and William visited this cottage while studying at St Andrew’s University. The royal estate covers 50 acres and has about 150 buildings. The House of the Dukes of Cambridge is located near Birkhall, the residence of Prince Charles and Camilla.

“ This is the only palace in which the Dukes of Cambridge can guarantee their privacy, and this is probably why their relationship began there. Middleton and William were spending time there when Kate first met her family, ”says one of the documentaries.

The Duke and Duchess last visited the cottage with their children in 2019 during their summer vacation in Scotland. Sources close to the couple said William and Catherine wanted to return to apartment 1A at Kensington Palace after Christmas in Norfolk, but quarantine thwarted those plans. William and Catherine are now spending time at their country estate, Anmer Hall.

Recall, the media named the amount that Kate Middleton spent on clothes in 2020.
