See ya, London! Kate Middleton and Prince William are relocating to the countryside, People reported on Monday, June 13.
According to the outlet, the pair — who share three kids: Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 — are leaving Kensington Palace behind and will move into a new home 30 miles west in Berkshire — the same place where Windsor Castle is located.
George and Charlotte, who both attend Thomas's Battersea, will leave the school at the end of the school term, and then they will enroll in a school near the near humble abode.
Not only will the pair be close to the Queen, but they will also be near Kate's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton. "The reality is they are quite confined in what they can do in London," a friend told the newspaper. "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."
As The Royal Observer previously reported, the duo had been looking for a change.
“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."
“There are real fears that despite being banished from The Firm in January, he is using his closeness to the Queen as a springboard back into public life," the insider added.
