As Prince William and Kate Middleton move into their renovated official residence at Kensington Palace at the end of September, their house in Anglesey is now available to rent.
Lord and Lady Meryick, who own the posh house located on the Isle of Anglesey, have reportedly put their property up for rent, according to E! News.
“The house was originally intended for Sir George Meryick's son but he moved along the coast when Prince William and Kate moved in,” an insider told the entertainment website.
“It's an absolutely beautiful spot, it's breathtaking up there. It has access to a private beach which nobody else could reach, onto the estuary...You could see the water from the bedrooms on the first floor, which look over the top of the outbuildings. The outbuildings surround a farmyard and you have to go through the farm yard to get down to the beach", the source said.
William and Kate, who have been staying in north Wales along with their son Prince George, will finally bid adieu to their house in Anglesey as William’s military service ends this month. The royal couple has often called Anglesey as their “first home together.”
Prince William said a warm goodbye to the island during Anglesey Show in August.
“I have never in my life known somewhere as beautiful and as welcoming as Anglesey. The views across the Menai Straits are undoubtedly among the most stunning in the British Isles. I know that both of us will miss it terribly when my Search and Rescue tour of duty comes to an end next month and we have to move elsewhere,” the 31-year-old said.
“From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making my wife and me so welcome when we arrived here, as you do thousands of visitors each year. This island has been our first home together, and it will always be an immensely special place for us both. Catherine and I look forward to returning again and again over the coming years with our family”, he added.
The Duke of Cambridge had been staying in Anglesey since January 2010 when he joined the RAF as a rescue pilot. Kate Middleton moved into the Anglesey house after marrying William, though they are said to have stayed in the same house during the initial years of their relationship.
