Opening up about their plans for the future of their home, the couple told HELLO! back in November 2020 that their children Arthur and Dorothy wanted to follow in their footsteps. "Arthur wants the orangery as his restaurant," explained Dick.

"He's a real gourmand and has even started his own branding," added Angel. "Dorothy wants one of the outbuildings, which will be very modern and contemporary. I'm allowed to babysit the two children she's going to have."
