Joseph Melhado, 30, from Anmer, near King’s Lynn, was sentenced to two years in prison for the burglary at Wiggenhall St. Germans.

Prince William and Kate’s mansion, Anmer Hall, is a Georgian manor house in the village of the same name.

It was bought by the Sandringham Estate some time after Queen Victoria bought the property, and has previously been let to business owners, officials and members of the British Royal Family.

The house was gifted by the Queen to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as a wedding present.

It has been reported that the couple has installed a chicken coop and kept bees and made honey on the estate.

And the Duke and Duchess’ Christmas cards often feature pictures of the couple outside the residence with their children.
