It has all elements of a horror movie – haunted mansion, spookiness, and of course ghosts. The Duke Duchess of Cambridge are the lead characters of the Ghostbusters style story.
Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William were hosted at Restormel Manor in Lostwithiel, Cornwall that is a 500-year-old mansion rumored to be haunted. The royal couple channeled their inner ghostbusters by spending the night in the spooky house, CDL reports.
The mansion is reportedly haunted by the ghosts of 1,000 soldiers that perished during the English Civil War. Owned by the duchy, it was once owned by Edmund, Earl of Cornwall, and the Black Prince, Edward Duke of Cornwall.
The Duke Duchess visiting Cornwall was said to be a romantic getaway for the couple as they left their kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte at home. Kate and William would have had time and privacy to indulge in working on Baby No 3.
Whether the duchess is inclined to be pregnant in the near future remains to be seen. She gave birth to one-year-old Charlotte in 2015.
For Kate and William, the official visit to Cornwall was also to scope out their future £20 ($26.59) million annual inheritances once Prince Charles becomes king. During their visit, Kate and William went to Truro Cathedral that was built between 1885 and 1910.
The couple then visited Newquay Beach, met members of the Wave Project. It is a charitable organization that uses surfing as a vehicle to reduce anxiety in children.
William will inherit the duchy that has 23 counties and also receive an annual income of £20 million from the land. In future, Kate and William’s fortune will increase significantly.
This time, the Duke and Duchess scoped out everything the Duchy has to offer, including the historic town of Truro. In their last engagement too, the pair promoted mental health, a cause that is close to their hearts.
