Ever dreamed of living like a royal? Well, here's your chance!
E! News has confirmed that Prince William and Kate Middleton's Anglesey home is available to rent now that the new parents are going to live in their newly renovated apartment in Kensington Palace with their newborn baby boy Prince George.
So what are the deets on this iconic landmark (besides it being Will & Kate's love nest)?
Lord and Lady Meryick own the posh estate, on the Isle of Anglesey, and William and Kate rented the Bordorgan Home Farm during the first years of their relationship. The royal couple were great friends with the Meryicks, who often invited them for Sunday lunch if they were staying at the Hall.

A source tells E! News, "The house was originally intended for Sir George Meryick's son but he moved along the coast when Prince William and Kate moved in. It's an absolutely beautiful spot, it's breathtaking up there. It has access to a private beach which nobody else could reach, onto the estuary...You could see the water from the bedrooms on the first floor, which look over the top of the outbuildings. The outbuildings surround a farmyard and you have to go through the farm yard to get down to the beach."
The insider continues, "The house is actually two houses stuck together, there are two staircases—one in the center of the first house and upstairs there are two bedrooms in the first house and two in the second house, so it's a four-bedroom house now they've been pulled together."
Just a side note, the new renter has a tough act to follow. Not only will they be the first to live in the home since the royals left, but they will be taking the place of one of the estate's most pleasant residents (no pressure).
"My friends were doing work on their home when William and Kate were living there," the source tells us. "My friends told me how really lovely Kate was. Every morning she'd make them a cup of tea and she didn't have any staff around, it was just her, looking after the house."
Now, the part we're all waiting for—how much is this going to cost? Well, Wills paid 750 pounds (nearly $1200) a month for the spot, but no exact amount has been released since the rent is expected to rise after the royals departure.
The Duke of Cambridge said a heartfelt goodbye to the locals during a visit to the Anglesey Show last month. "This island has been our first home together, and it will always be an immensely special place for us both," he said. "Catherine and I look forward to returning again and again over the coming years with our family."
