Kate Middleton and Prince William are in the midst of a royal move! According to The Daily Mail, The Cambridges of UK will relocate to Windsor this summer “to be closer to the Queen”, and they couldn’t be happier about this impending change.
At the moment, the couple divides their time between their properties at Anmer Hall, Norfolk, and their permanent house at Kensington Palace, London. The departure of the royal family and their children from Kensington Palace is soon to happen.
Gary Goldsmith, who is Kate’s uncle, claims: “William and Kate are going to have their hands full this summer as they move home to be nearer the Queen Elizabeth II and settle the kids into a new school. But I think they are ready for the next chapter in their lives.”
According to reports, the parents of Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, are planning one last “normal” summer for their children. They are meanwhile looking at schools in the vicinity as well as in Buckinghamshire and Surrey.
Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor property
The four-bedroom Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor property‘s premises is believed to be in their hands. Kate Middleton and Prince William are also keeping their Kensington Palace as their London home.
The primary motivation for their relocation to Windsor rather than Kensington Palace is reportedly to be nearer to the Queen as well as Kate’s parents and siblings. They require a base close to the capital to make it simple for them to travel there for meetings and events. Windsor appears to be the perfect location.
Moreover, due to its proximity to Bucklebury, Berkshire, where Kate grew up and where her parents, Michael, 73, and Carole, 67, reside in a £4.7 million Georgian manor house only a short drive from Windsor Great Park, Kate is eager to raise the children there.
Kate’s sister Pippa and her investment banker husband James Matthews have also just invested £15 million in a property in the county, while last year, Kate’s brother James and his French wife Alizée purchased a $1.45 million farmhouse in the village of Stanford Dingley, three miles away from their parents.
The royal kids George, Charlotte, and Louis love visiting the petting zoo and safari park at Bucklebury Farm Park, which is also co-owned by James Matthews.
The Duke and Duchess have not only ramped up their support of Her Majesty since Prince Philip’s passing last year. The 96-year-old monarch has been increasingly compelled to cancel royal engagements due to mobility concerns. When Prince Charles becomes King, Wills and Kate must be ready to step in and get the royal family through the changeover.
They are all set to move to their new home in Windsor which is close to the Queen and their children schools. They want a pleasant setup for their family only. All they need is to take their furniture and some royal possessions to the Windsor Palace now. The whole royal family is eagerly waiting for the move and excited about the positive change this relocation will bring in their lives.
