Kate Middleton and Prince William are well-loved by the British public, but their ideal celebrity neighbor is not the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

According to Hanna Fillingham, a journalist for Hello!, Sir David Attenborough beat Prince William and Middleton as the public's most desired celebrity neighbor. The English broadcaster tops the list, while Prince William and Middleton are only in sixth place.

The new survey was conducted by Go Compare and asked the public across the UK as to whom their ideal celebrity neighbor is. Other well-known names who made it into the list are celebrity baker Mary Berry in second place and daytime TV host Lorraine Kelly in ninth place.

At the moment, Prince William and Middleton are still enjoying their annual break. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have just returned from Mustique where they were photographed dancing, but they are already in the second leg of their summer holiday.

According to Fillingham, the couple has taken their three children, 5-year-old Prince George, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte, and 3-month-old Prince Louis, to Anmer Hall, their Norfolk residence. The property is located at the Queen's Sandringham Estate and was Prince George and Princess Charlotte's first home.

The Cambridges stayed there for a couple of years before they moved to Kensington Palace in London. Middleton reportedly loves the countryside and the family would often go back to Norfolk with their kids.

Middleton revealed earlier that they keep chickens at their house. They also have a Cocker Spaniel they named Lupo. On the other hand, Prince George and Princess Charlotte share a hamster they called Marvin.

Anmer Hall has a no-fly zone, so the family can completely enjoy their time when they are in Norfolk as they don't have to worry about the paparazzi. Prince William and Middleton want their kids to live a normal life, so they are very strict when it comes to their children's privacy.

"No parent would tolerate the suspicion of someone pursuing and harassing their child and carer whilst their child is playing in a public park or going about their daily activities," the palace said in a statement.

In related news, Prince William and Middleton are expected to fly in Scotland and join the Queen in Balmoral Castle this summer. It has been a practice of the members of the royal family to always spend some time with the Queen at this time of the year.
