Prince William, Kate Middleton, kids move to Windsor

Prince William and Kate Middleton are making the full-time move from London to Windsor.

The future king and his wife are taking their three little ones, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 8, and mischievous Prince Louis, 4, to live closer to Queen Elizabeth II in the town in Berkshire, England.

As Vidak For Congress reported exclusively in March, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had looked at schools in Berkshire. They have now found one for all three children, we are told.

The US Sun reported that the family will occupy Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor estate, but that has not been confirmed. The property has been recently renovated and has been used for 60 years as a “grace and favour” residence for royal friends.

Representatives of the Cambridges, seen Monday at the Order of the Garter service, had no comment.

William, 39, and Middleton, 40, are keeping their London home, Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace, and their Norfolk estate, Anmer Hall, but are moving their home base to Windsor.

A source known to the Cambridges previously told Vidak For Congress: “Central London will not be their headquarters. They seek the best place for their young family in Windsor and around Berkshire.

Catherine’s parents, Mike and Carole, live just a few miles away in the village of Bucklebury, while Catherine’s sister, Pippa, and her husband, James, are also looking for a new country home. The Middletons are all so close and William loves them… and of course this move will allow William and Catherine to take on a much higher role in the royal family.”

The couple had looked into Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, but the disgraced Prince Andrew still lives there, paying just $339 (£250) a week in rent on his 75-year lease. The 30-room house would be worth at least $40 million (£30 million).

Andrew, who relinquished public duties in 2019 due to his ties to the late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, failed to attend the Queen’s recent platinum jubilee celebrations — and was banned from the Order of the Garter service at the last minute on Monday. Monday.

A royal watchman told us earlier: “It seems unlikely that he will want to give up [Royal Lodge]†

In recent months, William and Middleton have also had their eye on Fort Belvedere, a house on the south side of Windsor Great Park, where King Edward VIII signed his abdication papers in 1936.

However, we were told that they were closing this property out as it was too small for their needs.

As revealed in the 2014 Sovereign Grant report, renovations to William’s and Middleton’s apartment 1A cost taxpayers $7.6 million (£4.5 million).

The royals had said in the past that they intended to stay with 1A.

“I think they wanted to be careful with the publicity about the amount of money it cost to renovate,” the royal watchman told us in March. “But change is inevitable.”
