Kate and William Windsor Castle- The new Prince and Princess of Wales moved this summer from Kensington Palace in London to Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, but they will probably relocate again in the future. But it won’t happen right away.
The new home of Prince William and Princess Catherine Middleton is unlikely to be their permanent residence.
The new Prince and Princess of Wales, both 40, moved from London to Windsor with their three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — at the end of summer. Insiders say that as the family settles into their new residence at Adelaide Cottage, they will hopefully live in the 1,000-year-old Windsor Castle in the near future.
Kate and William Windsor Castle, the ancestral home of the British royal family, is the world’s largest and longest-occupied castle. As per the Royal Collection Trust, 40 monarchs have lived in the spacious space since William the Conqueror formed it in the 11th century. Queen Elizabeth visited Windsor Castle frequently during her reign, but it is expected that her son King Charles III will spend less time there after becoming monarch.
For the time being, the Wales family appreciates Windsor’s extensive parkland and countryside, where George, Charlotte, and Louis can run around freely.
Maria Turrion Borrallo, their nanny, is living apart from them for the very first time. Princess Catherine and William want their children to have the most normal upbringing possible, given their unique circumstances. They are also defying royal tradition by keeping Prince George at home rather than sending him to boarding school.
William and Catherine’s children enlisted as new students at Lambrook School last month. Most days, the royal parents try to do school drop-off and pickup just 15 minutes away from Adelaide Cottage.
According to one close family friend, theirs is the life of a “modern royal family doing normal things.”
