Chloe BestThe Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, has lived in a number of beautiful homes prior to settling at Kensington Palace with Prince William and their two children. See where the royal has previously lived
The Duchess of Cambridge may be happily settled at Kensington Palace, but she lived in a number of other beautiful properties prior to moving into the royal residence. From the student accommodation Kate lived in while she was studying at St Andrew's University (where she first met Prince William), to the picturesque farmhouse the couple rented during their time in Anglesey, see where the 36-year-old has called home in the UK over the last few years…
Both Kate and her younger siblings Pippa and James Middleton attended Marlborough College, a co-ed boarding school in Wiltshire, as teenagers. It currently costs over £36,000 a year to board at the school, where there are six girls' houses and six boys' houses, along with a further five mixed houses.
University of St. Andrews:
In September 2001, Kate enrolled at the University of St. Andrews following a gap year in Italy. Kate spent her first year living in St. Salvator's Hall, often referred to by students as "Sallies", which was split into male and female quarters. It was here that Kate met Prince William, and the pair eventually went on to live together with mutual friends at an off-campus apartment in the middle of town.
Prince William and Kate moved to Anglesey in 2011, while he served there as an RAF Valley search and rescue pilot. The newlyweds rented this four-bedroom farmhouse on Bodorgan Home Farm, which offered them access to a private beach and had beautiful views of Newborough Forest.
The Middletons bought this stunning family home in 2012. It sits on an 18 acre estate and has seven bedrooms, a tennis court and swimming pool, and served as the location for Pippa Middleton and James Matthews' wedding reception in May 2017. William and Kate also stayed here for several months following the birth of Prince George in 2013, and even shared their first official family portrait from the garden of the sprawling estate.
The Queen gifted Prince William and Kate the beautiful Anmer Hall, located on the Sandringham Estate, in 2013. The couple renovated the property before moving in with their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte in 2015.
Prince William and Kate now live in London full-time, and have settled in at Apartment 1A with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The 20-room residence has plenty of space for the growing family to enjoy, and is close to Nottingham Cottage, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now living together.
