Following her recycled wedding dress, the eco-conscious princess is also a keen advocate for sustainability, so will no doubt enjoy being more connected with nature as she settles in the heart of the English countryside, with forage trails and stunning open spaces at her doorstep.

Despite escaping to the countryside to begin their journey as a family, it's likely that St James's Palace will continue to act as the royal couple's London base, much like Princess Anne who also has a home at Gatcombe Park.

Upon making her move to the Cotswolds, Princess Beatrice will not be their first member of the royal family to leave London in exchange for a country bolthole.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have spent much of the COVID-19 lockdowns at Anmer Hall in Norfolk, which is not too far from the Queen's home on the Sandringham Estate.

However, both Beatrice's sister and mother live in Windsor –  Princess Eugenie has been staying at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's base, Frogmore Cottage, while Sarah lives at Royal Lodge Windsor.
