It was shared with Pippa inside Kate Middleton’s $ 2M apartment before she became the Duchess of Cambridge
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, was a common practice in the royal family before marrying. But this does not mean that she came from humble beginnings. Kate is the oldest child of the upper-middle class Middleton family, who has a rich ancestry.
Because she comes with money, Kate lives in some amazing places. He also shared a $ 2 million apartment with his sister Pippa before marrying Prince William and moving to Kensington Palace.
according to this Hi! magazine, Kate’s parents – Michael and Carol – live in Bucklebury Manor, Berkshire. Middlets bought a 7-bedroom Grade II-listed Georgian property in 2012 for £ 4.7 million ($ 6.2 million).
Michael and Carol bought the property a year after Kate’s marriage to William. Previously, they lived in Oak Acres, on a £ 1.5 million ($ 1.9 million) property in the same Berkshire village. They decided to relocate because they needed better privacy and more security.
In 2013, William and Kate welcomed Prince George, a young family of three living in Bucklebury Manor for a few months. Cambridge also shared its first official family portrait from the Middleton Estate garden. The photographs showed that the house had a wide lawn, with various shrubs and trees.
No one in the Middleton family has shared much about Bucklebury Manor. But the Instagram fan account @_duchesskatemiddleton recently posted some amazing photos that gave unprecedented access to the grand property.
Instagram Post photos showed the two living rooms at Bucklebury Manor from a kitchen with muted color scheme, traditional log fireplace, lots of armchairs, and a large wooden dining table. Pixels also showcased the conservatory with both floor-to-ceiling windows and velux windows.
Bucklebury Manor sits on 18 acres and has seven bedrooms, five reception rooms, an entrance hall, a drawing room and a dining room with a 17th-century fireplace. The house has a library and seating room, as well as a swimming pool and tennis court on the property.
according to this The daily mail, Bucklebury Manor actually has royal connections. King Henry I originally gave land to the monks of Reading Abbey. After the dissolution of the monasteries in 1540, King Henry VIII granted the property to the wealthy son of a local wool merchant, John Winchcomb.
“The house was later passed on to the Hartley family, descendants of a women’s branch of the Winchcomb family. However, Hartleys still retains the titles of Lord and Lady of the Manor – defying any expectation that the Midlets would have inherited it from home, ”the article read.
Before her parents bought Bucklebury Manor – and before she married Prince William – Kate and her sister Pippa shared a $ 2 million apartment in London. Michael and Carol Middleton bought property on Old Church Street in Chelsea in 2002 for £ 780,000 ($ 1.03 million). It sold for £ 1.88 million ($ 2.5 million) in 2019.
according to this Hi! magazineThe apartment consists of three stories, three bedrooms (including a master suite with an attached one), two bathrooms, a large living room, dining room and kitchen. All the bedrooms were on the top floor, while the second floor had living and dining rooms.
