Anmer Hall, the Norfolk residence gifted to Prince William and Princess Kate by the late Queen after their 2011 wedding, has an unexpected resident – a ghost. According to paranormal historian Richard Felix, a Catholic priest’s ghost resides at the mansion. The priest was hanged, drawn, and quartered for high treason, although he was executed in York, he seems to have returned to Anmer Hall.
Reportedly, the royal couple was informed about the ghost before moving in, to which Prince William humorously responded, “No old hall would be complete without a ghost, would it?” The historic 18th-century home on the Sandringham Estate underwent significant renovations, making it a comfortable country retreat for the royal family.
From 2015 to 2017, Anmer Hall was the main residence for William, Kate, and their children, but it now serves as their second home. The family has since moved to Windsor, where they live in Adelaide Cottage. They often retreat to Anmer Hall during school holidays and enjoy the peace and serenity it offers.
Anmer Hall, with its blend of history and modernity, holds a special place in the hearts of Prince William and Princess Kate. It represents their commitment to maintaining their roots in the Norfolk community, which has welcomed them with open arms. The historical charm of Anmer Hall, coupled with its modern renovations, offers a serene retreat where they can find respite from the demands of royal life.
The presence of the ghostly priest adds an intriguing layer to the tapestry of Anmer Hall’s history. It’s a reminder that even in the most idyllic settings, history and folklore can weave a complex and fascinating narrative. The royal couple’s continued connection to this historic residence, ghost and all, reflects their love for Norfolk and their desire to cherish the moments of normalcy it provides.
