‘Glossie Possie’ goes east

Anmer Hall in Norfolk all but confirmed as future home of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

 

For months now there has been speculation as to whether Anmer Hall, a Georgian property on The Queen’s Sandringham estate, will become a future country home for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their son, Prince George. Today, such a move has all but been confirmed.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with Prince George departed from St. Mary's Hospital last week in their Range Rover. It will be the perfect vehicle for their forthcoming venture into rural life.

Today, Emily Monday of Norfolk Oak, a bespoke oak timber and kitchen manufacturing company owned by the current tenant, James Everett, confirmed that Anmer Hall is “soon to be faced with royalty once more” in a blog post announcing the company’s relocation to RAF West Raynham. Mr Everett and his family have occupied the house since 2000 and run their business from stables there for the last six years.

 

The home of The Duke and Duchess of Kent from 1972 until 1990, this brick, tile and Carstone house dates in the main to 1802 and is said to include 10 bedrooms, a swimming pool and tennis court. It is Grade II listed and was also occupied during the 1990s by Hugh and Emilie van Cutsem, close friends of The Prince of Wales.

Separately, various planning applications, submitted recently under delegated powers – thereby avoiding the usual planning process – to King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council, include extensions, moving the main gates and a new garden room and pergola. These changes are most definitely also indicative of a forthcoming royal arrival.

 

Mr Everett’s lease on Anmer Hall was due to end in 2017 but, as reported in today’s Mail Online, it is understood that “The Queen has paid the current tenant of Anmer Hall in Norfolk a ‘generous’ settlement to vacate the property as soon as possible”. The court of the Cambridges’ – once very much centred around their “Glossie Possie” – is going east.

  1. Couldn’t The Queen have given them something a little nicer? Something a bit closer to London? Something in Windsor Great Park?
