The Duchess of Cambridge has impressed the residents of Bucklebury with her humble demeanor.
Catherine Middleton and her husband, Britain’s Prince William, stunned the world when after welcoming Prince George last month they moved into the Middleton family estate in the picturesque village.
Catherine’s parents bought the 18-acre country estate last year, and it has become Prince George’s first home rather than the more traditional choice of Kensington Palace.
The Duchess is apparently enjoying a leisurely lifestyle in the village, where Bucklebury resident John Haley says she seems relaxed and at home.
“Whenever she’s in town, she goes around, does her shopping and gets on with it. A friendly, normal girl with no airs about her!” he told America’s Life & Style magazine.
“The entire community is proud.”
The Duke and Duchess are currently renovating their own $7.3 million home in the English countryside.
Prince George will undoubtedly grow up in luxury once it’s completed, with the couple already going all out to furnish the newborn’s nursery.
“They spared no expense on the nursery – it overlooks the back garden and has a fantastic view. And they redid and entire bathroom. It’s their first grandchild so they’re going all out,” an insider said.
Prince William recently revealed he’s enjoying a more modern approach to parenthood with his wife, telling CNN earlier this month he’s happy to learn as he goes along.
“I think so, and I’m just doing it the way I know this, you know, if it’s the right way then brilliant, if it’s not, if it’s the wrong way then I’ll try to do it better, but… no I just, I’m quite… I’m reasonably headstrong about what I believe in, and what I go for, and I’ve got fantastic people around me who give me great support and advice,” he said.
