Like most of us, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been making the most of the recent warm weather and are said to have held a family barbecue at the Sandringham Estate last Saturday (June 21).
A source to the Daily Mail has said the Middletons stayed with daughter Kate, William and grandson Prince George at Wood Farm, a 17th-century country mansion near to the royal estate.
It was said that the family were celebrating William’s 32nd birthday and Carole and Michael’s 34th wedding anniversary.
It is also believed that William gave the Middletons a tour of the newly revamped Amner Hall.
Anmer Hall, has been part of the Sandringham Estate since 1898 and it is now hotly tipped to be the future home of Prince William and his family.
The 10-bedroom Georgian house is situated just two miles from Sandringham House at the heart of the Queen’s estate and is thought to have been gifted to the young family by the monarch.
Since then, plans have been approved by West Norfolk Borough Council to re-route the driveway and to extend the garage block to form an equipment room.
Wood stores have been converted into accommodation and a new garden room with a glazed roof has also been constructed.
Hedges around the building are being grown and trees and shrubs have been planted to give the site more privacy.
These latest claims follow the recent news that Prince William has been in talks with the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service about becoming one of its pilots.
If the prince took up the post, Amner Hall would be an ideal location as it lies midway between the service’s bases between Norwich and Cambridge.
It would also enable the doting dad to be near to his son.
