Prince William and Kate Middleton are gearing up for their move to Windsor, and apparently they’re pumped. A source tells Us Weekly that “The whole family [is] extremely excited to be moving to Windsor, not just because it will bring them closer to [Queen Elizabeth II] but it’s a perfect happy medium that brings them closer to London than if they chose to settle full time in Berkshire or Amner Hall.”
Meanwhile, “They’ll still get to enjoy those locations of course, but by being in Windsor they’re only 20 miles from Central London and Buckingham Palace and it’s a beautiful environment that’s steeped in history and such a special location to call home.”
Apparently, Kate and Wills are moving to Adelaide Cottage—a 10-minute walk from the Queen—and sources told The Sun that they won’t be bringing any live-in staff with them.
“Kate and William were very keen for a modest home to start their new lives in Windsor,” a source says. “Adelaide Cottage fits the bill because it is a four-bedroom home and they do not need any more as they have no live-in staff. They were adamant they didn’t want anything too showy or anything that needed renovating or extra security so as not to be a burden on the taxpayer. The added bonus is they can send George, Charlotte, and Louis to school together locally. The three children will enjoy running around and playing in the gardens, which is the kind of life they enjoy so much when at Anmer Hall.”
The source added that, “They had no other demands than a pleasant family home close to schools and the Queen. They will pay rent from their private account. All they need to do is move in some of their treasured furniture and possessions. The whole family is looking forward to moving in this summer and starting a new chapter in their lives together in Windsor.”
TBD on when the couple are moving, but stay tuned and whatnot.
