The Prince and Princess of Wales moved to Windsor at the end of 2022, along with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, but at the weekend it appears the family made a visit to the east of England.

Prince William made a surprise appearance at a memorial service in Snettisham, Norfolk, on Sunday morning, paying his respects to the village's 1953 flood victims.

The location is almost a three-hour drive from Windsor to Norfolk, so it seems likely that William stayed overnight at his nearby Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

While his wife Princess Kate and three kids were not at the service with the Prince, it would have been a great opportunity for the family to enjoy a weekend away together at their beautiful country retreat.

The family have a country home in Norfolk 

The 10-bedroom home, is in fact bigger than their main residence, and Prince William once described it as "very peaceful", with a huge garden boasting lots of fun features for the kids such as a seesaw and Wendy house.

Before the family moved in, the property underwent a mammoth £1.5million renovation project, including the addition of a conservatory, a new driveway and completely overhauled interiors.

The family usually reserve the home for holiday visits during half-term breaks and the summer holidays, but there is a chance that a weekend visit to coincide with William's appearance could have worked before school again on Monday.

While royal fans have only had one glimpse inside their main home of Adelaide Cottage, we do know lots about their new place. There's a pristine garden and their master bedroom is uniquely decorated.

According to The Sun, the couple's bedroom features golden dolphins and ceiling rope decorations recycled from a 19th century royal yacht, creating an interesting nautical-inspired theme.

It is believed that Prince William and Princess Kate continue to use Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace for work purposes in London, where they used to live full-time.
