After over 10 years of marriage, Prince William and Kate Middleton seem to be doing better than ever, despite taking on more responsibilities now that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have left the royal family.
“He will be in charge of the Duchy of Cornwall, a billion-pound business empire, and will be expected to carry out far more royal engagements, especially abroad," a source told The Telegraph about William's future, as he is third in line to the throne. “He and Kate are in the happiest period of their lives now, before the weight of the world lands on their shoulders. They try to not think about what’s ahead.”
As The Royal Observer previously reported, the couple — who share Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 — are planning to relocate to the countryside. They will move from Kensington Palace to new home 30 miles west in Berkshire. One of the reasons for the shake-up is that they want to be closer to Queen Elizabeth and Kate's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton.
"The reality is they are quite confined in what they can do in London," a friend shared. "The kids can't go into the park and kick a football with friends. Their plan is to be there for the next 10 to 15 years and then move to Anmer, which is so special to them."
Rumors had been swirling for quite some time that the duo would leave London behind.
“The need to move to Windsor is growing more and more. Andrew spends a lot of time with the Queen," a source told The Sun in April. "He lives next door and is always there for her. During the Covid lockdown, the family was glad Andrew was always on hand. There is not a man, woman or child who would not say he had every right to be at Philip’s thanksgiving. But the family have been adamant there’s no way back."
