Prince William And Kate Middleton Will Be Moving From Kensington Palace | “Glorious Prison For Kids”

They will be moving to Windsor Estate after spending last summer at Anmer Hall.

Kate Middleton and Prince William will be moving out of Kensington Palace. The pair is preparing to relocate to Windsor after spending last summer at their country estate, Anmer Hall. Adelaide Cottage, a stylish four-bedroom property, appears to be their destination in Windsor Estate, per Cosmopolitan.

Kate's uncle Gary Goldsmith said, "William and Kate are going to have their hands full this summer as they move home to be nearer the Queen and settle the kids into a new school. But I think they are ready for the next chapter in their lives."

 



 

 

Royal expert Ingrid Seward told The Sun, "I think Wills and Kate need space to bring up their children. Kensington Palace is a glorious prison for kids – they want to be able to play football without being watched from behind the gates." She added, "I think Windsor will be perfect for them, as they will have lots of freedom and they can all be at school together."

Will and Kate's "apartment" at Kensington Palace is incredible. For starters, it's a four-story home with a gym, a walled garden, five "reception rooms," a private elevator, various "staff bedrooms," baggage storage, and multiple drawing rooms. The primary reason for their relocation to Windsor is so as to be closer to the Queen, as well as Kate's parents and siblings.

 



 

 

The Duke and Duchess have stepped up their duties as the 96-year-old queen has increasingly been compelled to withdraw from royal events, owing to mobility concerns after the death of Prince Philip last year.

Royal author Christopher Warwick said, in 2020, that Kate and Prince William's current home "has 20 rooms from the basement to the attic." He added, "All of these royal residences at Kensington Palace are called apartments, which of course makes people immediately think they are flats like the American term for an apartment. They are not. If you think of Kensington Place, in a way, it is built around three courtyards. If you kind of think of them as being these wonderful red brick terrace houses. Because they are all joined but separate houses." 

 



 

 

William and Kate must be prepared to step in and help the royal family transition when Prince Charles becomes King. Kate wants to raise her children in Bucklebury, Berkshire, since it's close to where she grew up and where her parents, Michael, 73, and Carole, 67, reside in a £4.7 million Georgian manor home, about an hour's drive from Windsor Great Park.

Kate's sister Pippa and her investment banker husband James Matthews have also recently invested £15 million in a property in the county. Her brother James and his French wife Alizée purchased a £1.45 million farmhouse in the village of Stanford Dingley, three miles down the road from their parents, last year.

George and Charlotte have withdrawn from Thomas's Battersea Prep School in south-west London and will be beginning at a new local Berkshire school in September, along with younger brother Louis.
