A grand country home is something to aspire to isn't it?

Perhaps at the top of many people's property porn lists is Anmer Hall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's second home 10-bedroom second home on the Queen's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

Royalist interest in the property spiked after the Cambridges released a photographed Kate, 40, baking with her royal offspring, George, 9, Charlotte, 7, and Louis, 4, in the lead up to the Queen's Jubilee celebrations.

While it was unclear whether the photo was taken in the future King and Queen of England's London pad, Kensington Palace, or at Anmer Hall, the image whetted royal fans' curiosity about the magnificent country home.

Interior design expert Benji Lewis told MailOnline the kitchen was "homely, "unfussy" and "unpretentious".

He said: "It's certainly not a kitchen in which one would feel required to stand on ceremony, there’s nothing flashy about it, on the contrary it’s very normal with its simple knobs (some unpainted even), some open shelving and a lick of pale blue paint against soft grey or tan walls."

The Mirror reports the Cambridges spent much of the pandemic at Anmer Hall, with both Kate and Wills carrying out royal engagements from there.
