Kate Middleton has been staying at Anmer Hall as public concerns over her health ramp up.

Anmer Hall, a 19th-century country house in the quaint village of Anmer, England, has long held its place as a cherished retreat within the British Royal Family.

However, recent events have thrust this property into the global spotlight, with concerns swirling around the health and whereabouts of Kate Middleton. She shares this residence with Prince William after the couple received it as a wedding gift from the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Reports suggest she’s been recuperating there following a mysterious abdominal surgery, with no expected return to public engagements until after Easter.

Theories regarding Middleton’s health also reached a fever pitch over the weekend, when a doctored family photo was released, prompting a swift apology from Middleton herself.

A source close to the situation expressed deep concern, suggesting that Middleton’s health struggles might be more serious than initially perceived.

“Something is terribly wrong,” the source told The Post. “The idea that Kate could not sit for one photo session tells me this is a much more dire situation than anyone knows.”

Despite the turmoil, Middleton was spotted briefly leaving Windsor Castle alongside Prince William on Monday.

But her head was turned away and cameras could not catch her face. Prince William embarked on a journey to Westminster Abbey, while Middleton was dropped off for a private appointment, marking her first appearance in more than two months since her surgery.

Anmer Hall, with its 10 bedrooms, swimming pool and private tennis court, has long been a sanctuary for the royals and their three children, especially during the pandemic.

Moreover, it’s an escape that seems calming. As seen in property images, verdant houseplants adorn the cozy space, while cream-colored walls serve as a soothing neutral tone.

After receiving the home as a gift from the Queen, extensive renovations ensued. The work included a new roof, a kitchen, a conservatory and a redecoration of the interior.

Notably, the addition of trees surrounding the property further enhances their privacy.

From 2015 to 2017, Anmer Hall served as the couple’s primary residence, providing respite from their royal duties.

However, as they transitioned into full-time royal roles, their base shifted back to Kensington Palace.

Anmer Hall is also just a stone’s throw away from Sandringham House, the historic venue where the Royal Family gathers for Christmas festivities.
