A rare opportunity has arisen to become neighbours with Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge.

Royal fans can now live just four metres away from the entrance to William and Kate’s Georgian mansion, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, where they are currently living with their children.

Two cottages have become available to rent in the tiny village, which has just 29 houses and a population of around 63.

One is a two-bedroom house and the other is a three-bedroom house with a large garden, both of which are almost opposite the main tree-lined gated drive to the Royal couple’s home.

The two-bedroom semi-detached house is available to rent for £725 per month and the three-bedroom semi, which comes with a large garage and outbuildings is up for £875 per month.

They are being let by the Sandringham Estate, which rents properties in 13 villages around the Queen’s residence.

The Sandringham Estate is letting the houses as primary residences and gives priority to those who live or work in the area. But people moving to Norfolk are also considered.

It states that properties are not let on a first come, first served basis but “rather on which prospective tenant is best suited to the property.”

Anyone interested in the house can fill out a form on the Sandringham Estate website.

Anmer, which is on the royal estate at Sandringham, lies around 12 miles north-east of King’s Lynn and 35 miles west of Norwich. In the 2001 census it has a population of 63 in 29 households.

In the past most of the houses in the village were occupied by people who worked at Anmer Hall or elsewhere on the Royal estate.

Anmer Hall was a wedding gift to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge from the Queen and around £1.5 million was spent upgrading the mansion before they moved in around 2013.

Despite its small size, Anmer has a variety of entertainment, including a social club offering film nights, quiz evenings and barbeques, an active Bowls Club and a Women’s Institute. It also has a 14th century church, St Mary the Virgin.
