Kate Middleton & Prince William Eyeing To Move Into Adelaide Cottage, Insider Reveals: 'The Best & Only Option'
It looks like Kate Middleton and Prince William are moving on up — to Windsor! It's been rumored the two are looking to settle down near Queen Elizabeth, and now a source revealed more information about their plans.
“Finding a way to make Adelaide Cottage work seems to be the best and only option. There are issues with all the other houses, so Adelaide will be the favorite," the insider said.
Adelaide Cottage has been used as a residence for royal friends for 60 years.

As The Royal Observer previously reported, the couple — who share Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 — want to be closer to the matriarch, 96, and they're looking at schools for their tots.
“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. "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."

Expert Susan Logue also weighed in on the situation. "It might be several reasons they'd want to move. One to help the Queen. Two, to be near Kate's parents and three, If Prince George goes to Eton, they'll be close to the school," she said. "I can actually see them moving to Windsor or onto the property somewhere close to the Castle."
Meanwhile, Dr. Ed Owens thinks the pair want to get away from being so close to London.
"Since the Megxit moment of almost 18 months ago, the Cambridges have been trying to redefine themselves and elevate their public images," he explained to The Express. "The problem with being at Anmer Hall was that they were pretty out of the public eye."
"Obviously they’ve always had their apartments at Kensington Palace, that’s been their London base, but moving to the South East and the Windsor area represents an opportunity to elevate their public image, to make themselves more visible," he added. "They’re clearly trying to associate themselves with the Queen, present themselves as supportive individuals and also associate themselves with this very historic site that’s been important for the monarchy for a long time."
