The Truth About Kate And William's Vacation Hideaway

Many people are aware of Prince William and Kate Middleton's main two homes, but this royal couple also has a third residence: a secluded cottage, perfect for a getaway.

At Kensington Palace in London, England, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have an apartment, apartment 1A, though it is not your average one. The stunning residence takes up four floors and has more than 20 rooms, including three kitchens, two master suites, a gym, a panic room, and several offices, as reported by House Digest.

The couple's country residence is Anmer Hall in Norfolk, which can be found about 110 miles north of London and which is where they socially distanced themselves during the COVID-19 lockdown. According to People, this 10-bedroom home features a garden room, a patio with a pergola, a tennis court, and a pool, allowing them to enjoy the great outdoors with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a cottage at Balmoral estate

Prince William and Kate Middleton also have the Tam-Na-Ghar cottage at the 50,000-acre Balmoral estate in Scotland. This three-bedroom home was given to the prince by his grandmother, and this couple has been coming here since they were university students. Even so, it is very private — so much so that there are very few images of it at all (via The Sun).

The royal family vacations at Balmoral in Scotland, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge opt for the cottage rather than the main castle, since, according to Vanity Fair, "it can get quite busy at what they call 'the big house.'"

Balmoral was acquired by Prince Albert in 1852, and it has 150 buildings, including cottages like Tam-Na-Ghar. These cottages were added by Queen Victoria and also include The Garden Cottage, which she used when eating breakfast and writing. Plus, when royals aren't here, some of the cottages can be rented (via 9Honey).
