Kate Middleton and Prince William Are Making Changes At Kensington Palace To Keep The Public Out Of Their Business
With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moving away from London and into their secluded estate –Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, all eyes have turned back to Prince William and Kate Middleton. Unfortunately, it’s been a strange few weeks for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Almost as soon as Markle went on maternity leave –the press decided they needed someone else to pick on and rumors began to swirl about infidelity in the Cambridge marriage.
According to British tabloids –Prince William had been cheating on Kate Middleton with her good friend, Rose Hanbury –the Marquess of Cholmondeley. The duke and duchess have known Hanbury and her husband David for many years. Their country home Anmer Hall is just a few miles down the road from the Cholmondeley’s Houghton Hall. Everyone is apparently so upset by the rumors that they are threatening to take legal action. Now, Prince William and Kate Middleton are taking drastic steps to get more privacy in their lives.
These are the changes Prince William and Kate Middleton are making to Kensington Palace for more privacy
After watching the world hound Meghan Markle for the better part of a year –the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are taking drastic steps to protect themselves and their three children –Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. The Cambridges live at Apartment 1A in Kensington Palace and while their home is very private –the Kensington Palace grounds are very visible to the public.
According to Daily Mail –the duke and duchess recently had a massive 950-foot hedge installed on the Palace grounds. The hedge will block outsiders’ views of the back garden, where the royal couple often arrive and take off by helicopter. The hedge is reportedly made up of 600 individual trees and cost about £15,000 ($19,606) to be delivered and installed.
A Palace spokesperson told Daily Mail that the hedge installment has to do with landscaping –not privacy. They said, “As part of the broader management of the estate, the physical surroundings of royal residences are under constant review. From time to time, adjustments are made to the landscaping and gardens, including hedging.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton are very strict about protecting the privacy of their children
They can certainly deal with rumors about their relationship, but Prince William and Kate Middleton do not play about protecting their little ones. In 2017 –the royal couple had 200 large trees planted in the Kensington Palace gardens which created a natural fence and allowed the tlittles to play outside without prying eyes.
Also, Middleton and Prince William are very particular about how often and when the little princes and princess can be photographed. They often retreat to Anmer Hall which allows them the privacy and relaxation that they do not get in London.
