Major shock for the Queen when she visited Kate and William’s country home.


Well, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have their own way of doing things. And, it can be a little surprising for the elder members of the royal family.

Or you can say a bit shocking.

As some reports claimed that When Her Majesty first visited Prince William and Kate Middleton at their country home in Norfolk, she was left shocked. 

Now, we wonder why is that?

It would seem that when the Queen first made the trip to Anmer Hall to see the family at their country residence. There, she was surprised by how differently they do things in comparison to life in Buckingham Palace.

The kitchen is the hub of their home. And the royal couple, William and Kate spend a lot of time there along with their three children.

A source told The Royal UK:-

“When Queen Elizabeth visited the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at their home, Anmer Hall for the first time, she couldn’t get her head around the fact the kitchen is the main base for them”.

“For Her Majesty, she can’t stand that because she is used to having a set room for that sort of thing”.

Not only this, the source also said that when the Queen visits Balmoral, she never goes into the kitchen. In fact, she keeps the area completely separate.

In stark contrast then, the kitchen at Anmer Hall is the “main hub” of the home her eldest grandson, Prince William shares with his wife and three royal children.

William and Kate do things quite differently from the Queen.

It leads into the dining room and the couple can often be found there, hanging out with their children. This is the norm for most families. But if you’re a reigning monarch, that could be a little different.

However, it seems that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate have decided to change things up for their kids. And honestly, we agree with their decision.
