This June marked The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and there were many Royal celebrations that took place up and down the country.
The Cambridges enjoyed a baking session in their kitchen and gave royal fans a peek into their family home as they did so.
While many were in awe of the kitchen which was dubbed “unfussy” and featured many gadgets, it seems The Queen herself wasn’t the biggest fan.
Sally Bedell Smith, author of Elizabeth the Queen: The Life of a Modern Monarch revealed how Her Majesty feels about the kitchen the family had in their Anmer House home.
“I remember when they had just finished renovating Anmer Hall, and they invited the Queen over for lunch.
“They have one of those big kitchens with eating areas, and she said, ‘I can’t understand why everybody spends their time in the kitchen.’”
Hopefully when Kate, 40, and Prince William move to their new home later this year The Queen will approve of their kitchen and dining area.
The pair and their children are set to move into the ‘humble’ four-bedroom Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor estate in the coming months, according to reports.
In their classic down-to-earth style, the couple are reportedly set to have no live-in staff, and after months of searching for the perfect property, have insisted that they didn’t want anything “too showy” or “that needs renovating”.
A source told the Sun: “Kate and William were very keen for a modest home to start their new lives in Windsor.
“They were adamant they didn’t want anything too showy or anything that needed renovating or extra security so as not to be a burden on the taxpayer.
“The added bonus is they can send George, Charlotte and Louis to school together locally. The three children will enjoy running around and playing in the gardens, which is the kind of life they enjoy so much when at Anmer Hall.”
The couple’s two eldest children are set to leave their prep school in Battersea and instead will attend a school close to their new home in Windsor, where Price Louis will join them.
Kate and William are keen to bring up their children in the country, although they are said to be keeping their other residence, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, which the couple are reported to be set to “continue to use regularly”. Their Kensington Palace property will remain operational as an office for staff.
