A housekeeper who once tended to the Queen has reportedly quit her £35,000 a year job with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge because it is "too demanding".

Sadie Rice, 35, has been with the young royal family for just under two years but decided not to join them as they move from Norfolk's Anmer Hall to Kensington Palace later this year, The Sun reports.

"Sadie’s a hard worker but the job’s demands got too much, even for her," a source from the Queen's Sandringham Estate told the paper.

"They wanted her to spend more time at Kensington Palace and her work was increasing all the time.

"She wasn’t having a normal life outside work."

Sadie was responsible for cleaning, laundry, shopping and some cooking at the 10-bedroom Anmer Hall, where Kate Middleton and Prince William have been based for the past three years - along with their children Prince George, three, and two-year-old Princess Charlotte.

Kate hired Sadie in 2015, after she spent five years tending to Norway royal couple Prince Haakon and Princess Mette-Marit, and their children, in Oslo.

Before that, she was at Buckingham Palace, where she was said to have won the approval of the Queen.
