Kate Middleton's parents live at Bucklebury Manor, a seven-bedroom Grade II-listed Georgian property in Berkshire, and with its drawing room and library, it could easily be mistaken for a royal residence.

Carole and Michael Middleton bought the home in 2012 for £4.7million, after deeming their £1.5million property, Oak Acre, in the same Berkshire village less secure. Take a look inside…

Between Kate, her brother James (who spent the start of the pandemic at the home) and their parents, the family have revealed little of the home, but an Instagram post shared by fan account @_duchesskatemiddleton offered unprecedented access.

Kate's brother James Middleton also gave a look at the garden when he filmed a video of himself shaving his beard in the space. As the camera panned to face his fiancée, Alizee Thevenet, he inadvertently showed the patio with a grey outdoor dining table and various bushes. The clip also showed creeper plants on the rear walls of the building.
