One of Britain’s most beautiful rural regions, Norfolk is famous for its iconic windmills, expansive fields and grand country estates with royal credentials. Among these is the favoured weekend retreat of the Queen, Sandringham, which is one of the grandest manor houses in England.

And who better to invite you into the incredible property than former royal correspondent Jennie Bond? On Prima's exclusive Norfolk holiday in June and August 2022, Jennie will give a private talk and hold a Q&A about her exciting career.

During the summer 2022 staycation, she'll explain why Sandringham means so much to the Queen, giving you insider info on what goes on behind palace walls, and pondering what the future might hold for the royals.

Meet Jennie Bond

Perhaps Britain’s most recognisable royal expert, Jennie spent 14 years reporting on the family’s lives, loves and losses for the BBC.

As well as presenting her own documentary on Channel 5, Jennie Bond's Royals, she has written numerous books on the subject, and is full of hilarious and fascinating stories about the weird and wonderful life of a royal correspondent.

The Sandringham Estate

Visiting Sandringham Estate, the private home of four generations of British monarchs, you'll discover the cultural treasures packed in the corridors and grand rooms. Expect to see a collection of oriental arms and armour, as well as family portraits by leading painters.

You’ll see the region’s romantic scenery while riding at a leisurely pace on three charming heritage trains, the Bure Valley Railway, the Bittern Line and the Poppy Line. These genteel railway journeys are considered some of England’s best, offering unrivalled views of the famously flat fields and sweeping coastline in this part of the UK.

Explore the Norfolk Broads

You’ll also take a river cruise on the Mississippi paddle steamer - a unique way to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Norfolk Broads.
