Inside Kate Middleton and Prince William’s special first home in Wales with cosy open fireplaces

When Kate Middleton met Prince William they were both studying at St Andrew University in Scotland.

The couple lived with friends throughout their studies before graduating and moving in together.

After marrying in 2012, the first home they shared as newlyweds was in Wales where they lived before they had children.

As the couple return to Wales to mark St David's Day, they are believed to have returned to the remote farmhouse they lived in.

Being the place that they started their married life together, the Cambriges regard the home as 'immensely special'

Let's take a look…

Prince William moved to Anglesey due to his job with the Royal Air Force and was joined by Kate in 2010.

At the time the Duke of Cambridge worked at RAF Valley on the island as a helicopter rescue pilot.

The couple shared a four-bedroom country cottage on the Bodorgan Estate from 2010 to 2013.

The home is believed to be made from two smaller properties with a central staircase connecting them.

French doors, four twin bedrooms, two of which have en suite bathrooms, and open fireplaces all feature within the house.

The house comes with access to a private beach and boasts beautiful views of nearby Newborough Forest, Llanddwyn Island and Snowdonia.

At the time, the couple is believed to have paid £750 per month which was what the house was offered for after the couple moved out.

William and Kate left Anglesey in 2013, shortly after the birth of Prince George, to take up residence at Kensington Palace.

The couple tend to visit whenever they are in Wales and also like to reconnect with the friends that still live local to their old home.

Kate and William now reside in Apartment 1A Kensington Palace and also spend time at their country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

In preparation for their arrival, the property at Kensington Palace underwent a £1m restoration to get it ready for their arrival with baby George.

He was soon joined by Princess Charlotte in 2015 and Prince Louise in 2018.

Before this week, the pair’s last joint visit to Wales was in November 2020, when they called at Cardiff during their Royal Train tour.
