The royal couple are reportedly leaving Kensington Palace, which has been their primary residence since 2017, in favor of moving to a property on the Queen’s Windsor Estate.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to leave their Kensington Palace with a move to Berkshire in the offing.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are reportedly all set to move into a home on the Queen’s Windsor Estate this summer.
The move will see the couple leave Kensington Palace, which has been their primary residency since 2017 after a stay at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
It is reported that the royal family is set to take their son Prince George 8, and his daughter Princess Charlotte, 7, are leaving their current school in Battersea at the height of this school year.
They will then join their younger brother, Prince Louis, 4, at a new school in September.
The decision was made with William, who is set to turn 40 soon, privately joking that he finds it “so intimidating”, reports the Times.
The royal couple will retain their Kensington Palace property as their main base in London, while retaining Anmer Hall, which they would still use regularly.
A friend reportedly told The Times they plan to move to Norfolk on a more permanent basis after their children get through “the school years”.
“They love it up there, it’s their happy place,” the friend reportedly said.
The planned move to Windsor will bring the couple closer to the Duchess’ parents, who live 45 minutes’ drive away in the village of Bucklebury.
