Prince William and Kate Middleton move to Windsor
They settle in a house with four bedrooms and no staff at home
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wanted to get closer to Elizabeth II
The project materializes. After weeks of speculation that Prince William, Kate Middleton and their children were ready to move from Kensington Palace and settle in Windsor, the Daily Mail reports that the choice of their new home has been made. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge should put their suitcases at the beginning of this summer in a “modest four-bedroom house”, the Adelaide Cottage in Berkshire, in Windsor more precisely. The small family would thus be closer to Queen Elizabeth II who resides in Windsor Castle, a handful of minutes from the Adelaide cottage. According to the editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, this prospect is something to delight the sovereign who “very often finds herself alone with her staff” and who should therefore be “delighted that William, Kate and their three great-grandchildren are so close to her”.
If the move takes place this summer, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, will all start their schooling at a new school not far from their new home. According to a source quoted by the Sun, this choice to settle in a more humble residence is voluntary. “Kate and William wanted a more modest home to start their lives in Windsor. Adelaide Cottage fits their expectations as it is a four bedroom house and they don’t need more as they won’t have any staff on hand. residence”. No home staff, no renovations, no extra security measures: that’s what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are looking for.

Amal and George Clooney as neighbors
By settling in the private domain of the crown, Prince William and Kate Middleton would get closer not only to Queen Elizabeth II, but also to Sir Elton John, actress Anna Friel or even George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney. Prestigious neighbors who guarantee them a certain tranquility. Before moving to Kensington Palace in 2017, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge lived in the Norfolk countryside at Anmer Hall, where they continue to visit regularly after carrying out very expensive renovations there.
