The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are making some delicious changes to the grounds of their home in Norfolk. The couple have hired garden expert Robin Parker to help them plant flower and vegetable gardens at Anmer Hall.
The Sun revealed that Kate hired Robin to help her become a better gardener. "He’s helping her become more self-sufficient. She loves cooking stuff she’s grown," a friend of the duchess said.
"It’s all a bit like Barbara and Tom in BBC TV comedy The Good Life." In the '70s BBC program, Tom and wife Barbara decide to turn their suburban back yard into a farm.
However, the 47-year-old gardener is tight-lipped on the matter. "Due to the nature of people I work for, I am not allowed to talk about the job," Robin said.
The royal couple are spending $3 million on renovations for the house, including an extensive tree-planting program to give the family of four more privacy.
