Prince William hints at permanent move as he praises Philip’s impact on Norfolk


PRINCE WILLIAM hinted at a permanent move to Sandringham as he revealed his late grandfather Prince Philip has made himself and the Duchess of Cambridge feel ‘they want to be here”.

Instead the Prince revealed how the Duke wanted to get involved and “do it himself”.

He said how that is exactly what Prince Philip achieved at Sandringham as he paid tribute to the role the Duke played in shaping and deciding the future and the environment of the residence.

The Prince added: “It has really mattered to me that I have learnt from and been able to witness his impact on Sandringham.”

But in a surprise revelation, William dropped a major hint at the possible future living arrangements for him and his family.

He said: “For me coming here and now living here, everything that he has done has led up to Catharine and I feeling like this is a part of the country we want to be in.”

The Duke added how “we love this area” and that Sandringham “feels like home” as he led a touching tribute to his grandfather.

He concluded how these feelings are solely “because of what he [Philip] has created”.
