Kate and William’s wedding gift from Queen worth far more than Harry and Meghan’s | Royal | News

The Queen gave the future king Prince William and his wife Kate, Duchess of Cambridge their rural residence Anmer Hall as a wedding gift. The Norfolk country house is in the village of Anmer and was built in 1802. The Queen gave the couple the house as a wedding gift and the stunning Georgian property is the most expensive royal residence belonging to a grandchild of the Monarch.

According to a study that looked at the potential rent royals could charge if they leased their homes out on the private market Anmer Hall could be rented out at £44,000 per calendar month.

Research by rental company UNCLE found a month’s rent of £44,000 per calendar month is £14,570 more than the average UK annual salary.

Anmer has 30 rooms and spans over 4,000 square metres and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children have used it as their rural base since 2015.

The house was registered as a Grade II listed building in 1984.
