A man who lives in the same village as Prince William and Kate's Norfolk residence has been jailed for stealing underwear and a sex toy. 

Joseph Melhado, 30, of Anmer, near King's Lynn, was sentenced to two years in prison for the burglary in Wiggenhall St Germans. 

Melhado, who also admitted to a second burglary charge from September 5, was also ordered to pay a fine of £149 at Norwich Crown Court.  

At a previous hearing his barrister Nicholas Bleaney said the case was 'very unusual', according to the EDP.

Prince William and Kate's country residence, Anmer Hall, is a Georgian country house in the village of the same name. 

It was acquired by the Sandringham Estate sometime after Queen Victoria purchased the property, and has previously been leased to business owners, civil servants, and members of the British royal family. 

The home was gifted to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by the Queen as a wedding present. 

It has been reported that the couple have installed a chicken coop and keep bees and make honey on the estate. 

And the Duke and Duchess's Christmas cards often feature photographs of the couple outside the residence with their children.
