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

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.”

Fashion Influencers Are Driving an Interiors Boom. How Are Home Brands Responding?

“A lot of people in fashion don’t understand that you can’t easily gift a rug or table. It doesn’t work the same as it does for a dress or a pair of shoes.”

Home is where the #content is — or so wrote Hilary George-Parkin in a 2017 Fashionista story titled, “Why Fashion Bloggers Are Evolving Into Home Decor Influencers.”

Three years later, may I ask: Why were once-strictly-fashion-adjacent influencers venturing into more home-furnished pastures? 

George-Parkin’s reporting is certainly worth revisiting in its own right, but for the interest of this piece, I’ll say the gist was this: With the influencer class having, well, influenced our clothing and accessories to a certain degree of satisfaction, our homes became their next logical frontier with which to express their particular stamps of style.

Looking To Refresh Your Space? R29’s New Home Decor Collection Is Here To Help

In the era B.C. (before COVID), “home” had its designated purposes. It was where you slept, got dressed, sometimes cooked. You’d come and go. On whims. You’d vacuum only when absolutely necessary.
