It’s not a palace but if you ever wanted to live like royals, specifically the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, here’s your chance.
Anglesey is where the royals moved after marrying in Buckingham Palace in 2011 to accommodate William’s job as a search-and-rescue pilot with the Royal Air Force (RAF). The newlyweds were often spotted out and about on the island, grocery shopping and popping into local stores.
Now that they’ve had two major life changes — Kate gave birth to the couple’s first child, Prince George in July, and Prince William announced an end to his military service this month — they are moving on to more royal pastures. The couple is expected to move this fall into their newly renovated apartment 1A of Kensington Palace, the palace where William grew up.
The U.K.’s The Mirror reports Kate and William’s cottage is “off the beaten track” with access to a private beach and “stunning” views of Snowdonia, a mountain and coastal destination popular for its outdoor activities.
The Duke and Duchess were said to have paid around $1,200 per month for the home but how much the new occupants will have to pay is unknown.
William made one of his first public appearances after George’s birth in Anglesey, visiting a fair in August to thank the people of his and Kate’s adopted hometown.
“I know that I speak for Catherine when I say that I have never in my life known somewhere as beautiful and as welcoming as Anglesey,” William said. “The views across the Menai Straits are undoubtedly among the most stunning in the British Isles. I know that both of us will miss it terribly when my search-and-rescue tour of duty comes to an end next month and we have to move elsewhere.”
William and Kate have been splitting their time between London, Kate’s parents’ home in Bucklebury and Anglesey since George’s birth July 22 in London.
