When Prince William and Kate Middleton were married, Queen Elizabeth gave them a particularly nice gift: a property on the royal family’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk. Ever since, they’ve been enjoying Anmer Hall, both as a permanent residence at times and as a country retreat.

But lately, it’s been serving a very particular purpose: hosting Will, Kate, and their three children during the coronavirus outbreak, and serving as a background for the couple’s many Zoom calls (more on that below).

Here, everything you need to know about Anmer Hall.

The Home’s History

The 10-bedroom Georgian manor was originally constructed in 1802, and features a swimming pool and a tennis court on the property.

William and Harry visited the property in their childhood, as Prince Charles’s friend Hugh Van Custem Sr. resided with his family in Anmer Hall for 10 years. William has remained

2020 Toyota RAV4 Interior Driveway Test

The latest Toyota RAV4 was designed and engineered to be more evocative of an SUV. Part of that can be seen inside, where there is less of an uber-practical parent-mobile vibe. The center console is higher and there are rugged-ish rubber surfaces on door pulls and knobs. Instead of fake wood or metal to create the fleeting impression of a luxury vehicle, Toyota instead utilizes different color trim, stitching or upholstery accents to add some visual differentiation. In the RAV4 Hybrid shown here, you can see blue bits and pieces. 

In short, I’m a big fan of the 2020 Toyota RAV4 interior. Aesthetically, it’s distinctive without trying too hard, and the quality is high for this segment. Functionally, it just works. You get in and everything is readily at hand, partly because of that higher center console. Readily within sight is the touchscreen that looks bigger than its 8-inches

Chelsea reveal new home kit for 2020-21 season

Chelsea have unveiled their new home kit for the 2020-21 season, with the herringbone-knit patterned jersey due to be available from July 9.

A simple design, said to be inspired by the traditional craft of London tailoring, will see a new sponsor emblazoned across the front in the form of mobile company Three UK, with Yokohama Tyres no longer the club’s main shirt partner.

Announcing the new shirt, the west London club said: “Chelsea’s 2020-21 home kit brings a touch of Savile Row to Stamford Bridge by blending the latest in athletic innovation with the finesse of fine London tailoring.

“Inspired by west London’s long association with master tailors and their exquisite craftsmanship, the Blues’ new home jersey ventures into the realm of statement shirting. A luscious, textured, modern classic, wholly befitting the capital’s most stylish club.”
