Ghosts don’t spook Prince William—even when they’re squatting in his Nineteenth-century mansion.
In line with paranormal historian Richard Felix, the Prince and Princess of Wales’s Norfolk countryside home, Anmer Corridor, can be residence to Henry Walpole, the specter of a Jesuit priest executed in 1595 for his faith.
“When the Prince of Wales and Princess of Wales moved into Anmer Corridor—it’s roughly on the Sandringham Property—there was a ghost there of a Catholic priest that lived there and was hanged, drawn and quartered for top treason, and for some purpose, has returned to his residence,” Felix stated throughout a visitor look on the October 11 version of Hiya! A Proper Royal Podcast, based on Folks. “Though he was executed in York, they’ve really heard his voice. And so they have seen the ghost of what they are saying is a priest, wandering round Anmer Corridor.”
Queen Elizabeth II gifted Anmer Corridor to William and Kate in honor of their 2011 wedding ceremony. Although the couple and their three youngsters—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis—are primarily based at Windsor’s Adelaide Cottage, they usually spend holidays and breaks on the 10-bedroom Georgian mansion.
Felix continued, “Earlier than the Waleses moved in, they have been warned in regards to the ghost and the remark was—I presume it was from Prince William—he stated, ‘No previous corridor can be full and not using a ghost, would it not?’”
Whether or not or not Walpole is definitely haunting Anmer Corridor appears to have little bearing on the household’s affection for the property, which dates again to 1802. Household portraits are sometimes captured on the grounds of Anmer Corridor, and Kate has beforehand spoken in regards to the high quality time she spends there along with her youngsters.
Throughout a 2020 look on the Completely happy Mum, Completely happy Child podcast, the princess stated she is happiest when “I’m with my household exterior within the countryside and we’re all filthy soiled.”
