Updating Anmer Hall: Change is Never Easy: Prince William and Kate Refurbish Beloved Weathervane

First the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge annoyed their new neighbours in Norfolk by replacing the old weathered tiles of their country retreat Anmer Hall with garish orange ones.

Then they had the front path of the 18th Century mansion on the Sandringham Estate rerouted. Now Kate and William have raised hackles further by removing an ensign, painted as the St George’s flag, from a historic weathervane as part of the renovations at their new home.

The flag was part of a ship-shaped vane which has overlooked the hall for more than 100 years. Click link for full post from The Daily Mail.

According to one source, it might not be too long before Kate’s next holiday. Next month she is hoping to join her family on the private Caribbean island of Mustique for her mother Carole’s 60th birthday.

The Middletons are understood to have booked a villa there. Says a source: ‘Kate is pencilled in for a trip to Mustique with Prince George.

William is not going as he has his head down, revising for exams. (Update: William was able to make the trip!!) 'It is a big birthday for Carole and Kate won’t want to miss it. She has been saying she really is missing some winter sun.’

Kate has been given the all-clear to travel – and looks as though she deserves a break in the sun. Click link for full post from The Daily Mail.

THE Countess of Wessex is more than just a regular riding companion for her mother-in-law, which is why she’s been given the highest seal of approval.

Like her sister-in-law Princess Anne before her, the Countess of Wessex – as Sophie became on marriage – wanted her children to able to grow up free from the public glare and media spotlight.

She and Edward have also managed to provide Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn, now aged 11 and seven, with a stable family life. Edward is the only one of the Queen’s children not to have suffered a marriage break-up.

Today is Sophie’s 50th birthday, a significant milestone for a royal who continues to carry out her extensive public duties with diligence and usually well beneath the media radar.  Click link for full post from EXPRESS.
