Kate Middleton and Prince William and their children are expected to move this summer.
Rumors are swirling about the Cambridges’ new home. Their first choice is, according to the media and royal experts, Adelaide Cottage. While speculation continues about this move, another debate is going on. Kate and William prepare to leave Kensington Palace. However, for repairs and development, the couple spent millions of pounds there.

According to the daily Express, the 4.5 million pounds of sovereign grants were used for repairs to the roof. Kate Middleton and Prince William also used some of the money for asbestos removal. “In addition, the couple have privately paid for a second family kitchen to complement the ‘working kitchen’ used for official events,” Express magazine said. Some royal pundits like Robert Jobson are shocked by the Cambridges’ move, but plenty of fans are defending them.
“That was ten years ago and three kids later. Priorities shift. Haven’t you changed your mind about anything in a decade, Robert?” one Twitter user commented. “They are both doing a great job and raising a great family. “Can we stop pestering them about this? Glad they’re with the kids where they go to school,” another wrote.
