The Royal Family’s most beautiful private homes in pictures
Express.co.uk looks at five of the most beautiful private royal residences in the UK.
The Queen’s beloved Sandringham House is located in Norfolk, and it is the backdrop of the Royal Family’s Christmases. Every festive season, royals like Prince Charles and Prince William will visit the Queen at Sandringham and attend a church nearby on Christmas Day. Queen Victoria’s eldest son, the future King Edward VII, lived at Sandringham in the 1800s, and the home has since become a royal favourite.
Anmer Hall is located on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. The home was gifted to Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge by the Queen to mark their wedding in 2011. The couple now splits their time between Anmer Hall and Kensington Palace with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Prince Albert, beloved consort of Queen Victoria, bought the Balmoral Estate in 1852. The royal couple were frequently in residence at the stunning Balmoral Castle, and it is now the summer holiday home of the Royal Family. For most of her reign, the Queen has spent the warmer months in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.
Birkhall is Prince Charles’ private home in Scotland which he inherited from his grandmother The Queen Mother upon her death in 2002. Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall spent their honeymoon at Birkhall in 2005.
