West Norfolk is set to be the main home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the next two years – according to a national newspaper.

The country-loving Royal couple are looking to leave London to make Anmer Hall their family home to bring up Prince George, according to the Mail on Sunday.

The ten-bedroom mansion was given to the couple by the Queen and has been undergoing a £1.5 million refurbishment.

Prince William has strong connections to West Norfolk through Sandringham and he also spent time at Anmer Hall as a youngster when it was the home of the Van Cutsem family.

He is reported to enjoy a drink at the Dabbling Duck in Great Massingham along with the produce from Great Bircham Mill.

Bread and cakes are still made in the original bakery, which used to be owned by the Sandringham Estate. Owners Elly and Stevie Chalmers were delighted to hear that their bread and cakes were a favourite with the Royals.

Mrs Chalmers said: “We have often thought how wonderful it would be if Prince George would come to play in our garden as it is aimed for under fives. We didn’t realise the Duke had been here.

“But we are delighted that the mill is favoured by the Royals. My father had the royal warrant when he ran T R Wagg the bakers in Docking.”

The Duke and Duchess are also reported to have a strong circle of friends in this area, including Davina Duckworth-Chad, Archie Soames, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley, Laura Fellowes and William Van Cutsem.

Prince William is also reported to be “considering his options” about flying with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
