Kate Middleton and Prince William visit Pantoland with family
The Duchess of Cambridge wanted to be a “country mum”, a source close to the royal household claimed. Kate and Prince William are parents to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – and the family spends a lot of time at Anmer Hall in Norfolk when they are not at Kensington Palace.
The source told People: “Even if she were married to a banker, I don’t think she would be much different.
“She would have wanted to be a country mum and be in town occasionally.
“I don’t think she would have been living a very different life.”
A friend of the Cambridges also told the US magazine that Kate is “very chilled at home”.

The insider said: “At the end of the day, she’s in training to be a future Queen, but honestly you would never know it.
“If you go round to her house, you get a cup of tea, and it’s often William who makes it!
“It’s a lovely, welcoming house, not a fancy, stuffy palace in any way.”
The friend added: “It’s a normal, busy family home with kids running around and knocking things over. There’s no airs and graces.”

The Cambridges spent much of the coronavirus lockdown at their country residence.
And earlier this week they released their Christmas card photo which gave a glimpse of their life at Anmer Hall.
In the snap, taken at their Norfolk home, the family-of-five are casually dressed as they sit on a bale of hay with a large woodpile in the background.
George, seven, Charlotte, five, and two-year-old Louis smile for the camera alongside their parents.

It is not known if the Cambridges will spend Christmas at Anmer Hall.
Members of the Royal Family usually join the Queen at Sandringham for the festive period.
But the monarch is staying at Windsor Castle for a quiet December 25 with Prince Philip this year due to the pandemic.
Earlier this month during a visit to Wales, William admitted he and Kate were still deciding what to do for the festive season.

He told students in Cardiff: “It is so difficult. We are still trying to make plans. It’s difficult to know what to do for the best.”
Royal author Penny Junor praised the Queen for setting an example with her low-key Christmas plans.
Ms Junor said: “I think it’s very, very sensible.
“I think families at the moment are absolutely torn about what they do at Christmas because the Government has told us that we can go out and meet two other households and socialise with two other households.
“The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are both clinically vulnerable because of their age.
“I think that is showing real leadership in doing the right thing.
“If getting together at Christmas is going to put elderly people and vulnerable people in danger, probably it’s better to postpone it until we’re all safer.
“I would guess that is what they are doing is sending a message, a clear message to people that it’s alright to miss this Christmas in the hope of having other Christmases to spend with much-loved family.”
