The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are lucky enough to divide their time between two incredible homes in London and Norfolk, and are reportedly considering a move to Windsor to be closer to other members of the royal family.

But Prince William and Kate also have a lesser-known third royal residence on the Queen’s Balmoral Estate, which they have visited on several occasions throughout their relationship, including on a family holiday with their three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Tam-Na-Ghar was a gift to Prince William from his great-grandmother, the Queen Mother, shortly before her death in 2002. It is located close to Birkhall, Prince Charles and Camilla’s residence on the Balmoral Estate, where they isolated together following the Prince of Wales’ coronavirus diagnosis in March 2020.

Prince William and Kate have visited the three-bedroom cottage together since they were studying at St Andrew’s University, and the pair reportedly told friends they have enjoyed some of their happiest times together there. They have continued to visit throughout their relationship, and stayed at the cottage with their three children during their summer holiday in Scotland in 2019. More recently, Kate and William toured Scotland, so there is every chance they utilised their third home then.

The 50,000-acre Balmoral estate features 150 buildings in total, including Balmoral Castle, where the Queen spends her annual summer break, and the Garden Cottage, which was often used by Queen Victoria for taking her breakfast and writing diaries. There are also several holiday cottages available for let on the estate – except for when the royal family are in residence – including Colt Cottages, Connachat Cottage, Karim Cottage and Rhebreck Lodge.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent almost the entirety of the coronavirus pandemic staying at their second home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, excepting when they returned to London for the children to attend school.

The three-storey property is located on the Sandringham Estate, nearby to Sandringham House where the Queen usually spends Christmas, and close to Prince George’s godfather William van Cutsem. The 18th-century building was given to the couple as a wedding gift from the Queen in 2011, and they used it as their main residence while Prince William worked as a pilot for East Anglian Air Ambulance until 2017.
