Princess Kate ‘left £700 tip’ at Norfolk music festival with four-course meal

Kate Middleton’s ‘oatmeal diet’ tested by Daily Express

Princess Kate attended her first music festival over the weekend, as she raved away at Houghton Hall, the estate owned by her pals David Rocksavage and Rose Hanbury, the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley.

However rather than frequent the festival food trucks the Princess opted to dine at the Turntable & Napkin restaurant, where a four-course meal costs £60.

According to the Daily Mail the royal was a generous customer at the restaurant, leaving a £700 tip for staff after the meal.

The London Evening Standard reported: “[Catherine] was in high spirits, ordering spicy margaritas, eating affogato, and speaking affably with the other members of her party.

“Her companions apparently carted in a huge, balthazar-sized bottle of AIX rosé and, together with Kate, left the festival restaurant staff a £700 tip.”

A balthazar is a 12-litre bottle and it would cost about £500 from a wine shop, reported the publication.

The Princess was dining with the Marquess and Marchioness at their home at the time the festival was taking place on their 1,000-acre estate.

During their meal it was suggested that Kate could attend the festival, thought to be the first time she has attended such an event.

A source told the Mail on Monday: “After dinner, one of the guests suggested that Catherine go to the festival.

“Catherine was nervous about the idea, but, after much discussion with her protection officers, she went with lots of security. William wasn’t there.”

It is not known why the Prince of Wales did not accompany his wife, although he may have been looking after their three children at their nearby Norfolk home Anmer Hall.

Kate and William are good friends with the Cholmondeleys, dubbed the “Turnip Toffs”, who live close to them in Norfolk, where the Wales family like to get away for the school holidays.

Although the Prince and Princess are normally based at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, they retreat to Anmer Hall when they have a break, where they can enjoy being in the countryside with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Their Norfolk home was a gift from the late Queen Elizabeth II after their royal wedding in April 2011.
