Is Kate starting her own business?
The Middletons have always been an entrepreneurial family with the Duchess’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, owning and developing their online party business ‘Party Pieces’. And now apparently it’s rumoured the Duchess of Cambridge plans organic food range!
Inspired by her love of organic food and the wonderful estate surrounding her home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, Kate could be planning to release her own line of organic food grown within the grounds! The idea started after the Duchess began wrapping up walnuts in decorative bags for the staff who work at the Anmer estate, and very soon you could be able to get your hands on products straight from the royal gardens too.
Apparently the new food range would be called something along the lines of ‘Anmer Organics’, with all the produce grown on the Anmer Hall estate in Norfolk where William and Kate live with Prince George and Prince Charlotte.
A source told the Daily Mail: “It’s a concept for now but it will happen – just give it 18 months or so. And it’s natural that it should do so. One day Prince William will want to have a profitable business attached to his estate to generate funds…It’s also important for William to promote his home, Norfolk.”
Kate wouldn’t be the first member of the royal family to branch out and explore developing a food range for the general public. Prince Charles has the famous ‘Duchy Originals’ range that sells in Waitrose and has made millions for charity.
Like her father-in-law’s food line, profit from the sales of Kate’s organic food range would go straight to one of the many charities the royal family support.
We wonder whether Kate will get hands on in the process, and help with the gardening and food prep? Rumour has it her sister Pippa, who is training to be a nutritionist, is waiting in the wings to help develop the recipes!
