'Gentleman farmer' Prince William

Britain's Prince William lives the life of a "gentleman country farmer" at home in Norfolk.

The 33-year-old royal and his wife, Duchess Catherine, 34, have an apartment at Kensington Palace in London but love to spend time at their country estate, Anmer Hall, where William enjoys a quieter life in between undertaking royal duties.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "He wanted to move to Norfolk to give him the life of the gentleman country farmer, like his friends.

"Everything has been set up - his pilot job, his duties, his home - so he can do this.

"Shooting, fishing, house parties at weekends and a very private life with his family away from the cameras are the order of the day.

"All his friends live this country lifestyle and so, now, does he."

Along with his royal duties, William - who has children Prince George and Princess Charlotte with Catherine - is also kept busy working with the East Anglian Air Ambulance which is based in Cambridge and serves Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.

He began working with the service last July and completed four rescue missions in his first week.
