Prince William - Queen Elizabeth Gives Cottage To William

Britain's Queen Elizabeth is giving her grandson Prince William a cottage as a 30th birthday present.

The monarch has gifted the home on the Sandringham Estate to William, and he is said to be delighted because it is the location where he and wife Duchess Catherine spent their first Christmas together as a married couple.

A source told The Mail on Sunday newspaper: ''A property is definitely being made available to William and Kate this year and a plan is in place for William to have his own place on the estate.

''He's a country boy and loves Norfolk, just like his father and his grandparents. It's a lovely peaceful place and William adores it.''

It is not clear which cottage on the sprawling 20,000 acre estate will be made available to the pair.

William and Catherine currently live in Anglesey, North Wales, where he works as a search and rescue pilot, and also spend time at Kensington Palace in London.

Catherine is believed to be currently redecorating their London home with some assistance from interior designer Kelly Hoppen.

A source said: ''She's keen to work with interior designer Kelly Hoppen, but she wants to do a lot herself.''
