ROYAL fans can now become neighbours with the Cambridge’s after the cottage next door to Prince William and Kate Middleton's Norfolk home came onto the market.
The Duke and Duchess were given Anmer Hall, in West Norfolk, as a wedding present from the Queen.
And now the two-bedroom cottage just metres away from the entrance to the mansion is available to rent, for £700-a-month.
The Sandringham Estate is letting out the unfurnished property, which has recently been refurbished, and boasts off-street parking and a "large garden".
But any prospective tenants who have cats need not apply, as the website states it operates a “strict no cats policy”.
Although the website adds: “Dogs will be considered on a house by house basis.”
And people are warned the end-of-terrace house, referred to as 20 Cherry Tree, has “steep stairs”.
Anyone who fancies moving in to the village needs to apply via the Sandringham Estate website, but there are strict criteria.
The website says: “Sandringham’s housing policy is to let properties as a primary residence, prioritising those who live and work locally.
“Those moving to the area are also considered.
“Properties are not let on a first come, first served basis, but rather on which prospective tenant is best suited to the property.”
The tiny village of Anmer has just 29 houses and a population of 63, with the royal estate letting out 13 homes in the cosy community.
Historically, those who lived in the surrounding properties worked at the sprawling Georgian mansion.
Anmer Hall is located around 35 miles west of Norwich, and the royal couple spent £1.5 million upgrading the home before moving in in 2013.
The couple based themselves there after welcoming their first child, Prince George, as it was also easier for Prince William's job as a pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service.
The couple moved back to Kensington Palace, now their main residence, ready for Prince George to start school, but retain their country getaway.
Meanwhile it emerged the Queen ‘stung’ Kate Middleton for ‘swanning off on five-star holidays like Mustique’, royal author claims.
And Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton trolls were out in force after the Sussex's ask Instagram users to nominate ‘Forces For Change’.
