According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their kids, George, 9, Charlotte, 7, and Louise, 4, are getting ready to leave their house at Kensington Palace for a more “modest” residence in Windsor. William and Kate new cottage will be “Adelaide Cottage.”
They now live in a 20-room home, which is called as Apartment 1A. They do not wish to let go of this property but will keep it in their possession. They also own a 10-bedroom Anmer Hall manor in Norfolk which was gifted to them by The Queen at their wedding. They will use these two homes to spend vacations.
William and Kate new cottage, Adelaide Cottage, is a lovely Grade II-listed cottage from the 1830s only a short drive from Windsor Castle.
They will have several new famous neighbours in the area beside The Queen, who lives at Windsor Castle, and Kate’s parents, who live only 45 minutes away.
Elton John, a singer and intimate friend of the royal family resides in Windsor. Although the celebrity owns homes across the world, his Woodside residence has always been referred to as “the hub.” At today’s inflated home prices, Elton paid £400,000 for the home in 1974, which equals £4,199,268 as of these days.
The property of George and Amal Clooney is also very close to the Cambridge family’s soon-to-be residence. The famous couple attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding in 2018 and are well-acquainted with the royal family. The pair has been refurbishing and developing their £12 million home in Sonning-on-Thames, Berkshire, lately.
The Cambridges will be nearer to other royal family members since they are going to reside in Windsor soon. Sarah Ferguson, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew, and he lives at Royal Lodge Windsor.
Additionally, the new house will be close to Frogmore Cottage, where Prince Harry and Meghan lived before they relocated to California. When the pair recently travelled back to the UK to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee, they once again stayed at the residence.
The family will continue to spend holidays at their beloved Norfolk estate, Anmer Hall, even after the relocation. Whereas Kensington Palace will continue to serve as both the Cambridges’ London residence and the location of their press office.
A modest home was exactly what Kate and William were looking for to begin their new lives in Windsor. Since they don’t have any live-in workers, Adelaide Cottage’s four bedrooms are plenty for their needs. They were determined that they didn’t want anything extravagant or needing renovation or extra security to spare the taxpayers from paying for it.
