We can never get enough of Prince William and his adorable family. But with so many photos of the handsome royal his wife, Kate Middleton, both 35, and their children, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, traveling the world together, many are often left wondering where William and his brood live.
Well, it turns out that Will, Kate, and their kids spend a lot of time at their country home in Norfolk, England, but it’s been rumored that they plan on moving into Apartment 1A at London’s Kensington Palace full-time starting sometime this fall. Back in January, Kensington Palace released a statement via Twitter explaining why the family is relocating to the British capital once William’s job as a helicopter pilot with the East Anglia Air Ambulance concluded at the end of summer. However, there’s been no word on their move quite yet and now that Kate is pregnant with baby No. 3, who knows if the relocation will be delayed even more.
“As they have in recent years, Their Royal Highnesses are keen to continue to increase their official work on behalf of The Queen and for the charities and causes they support, which will require greater time spent in London,” the palace said. “Prince George will begin school in London and Princess Charlotte will also go to nursery and eventually school in London as well.” George began school at Thomas’s Battersea in London this past September.
Apartment 1A — which underwent a $7.6 million renovation in 2014 — was previously the home to another young royal couple, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, in the 60s. Interestingly enough, William grew up with his father, Prince Charles, his late mom, Princess Diana, and younger brother, Prince Harry, in nearby Apartment 8 — which is located on the other side of Kensington Palace and only a short walk from 1A.
According to the Daily Mail, the term apartment is slightly deceptive as the actual unit is “effectively a spacious four-story house, which forms half of the Clock Tower wing.” Oh, and let’s not forget to mention that the not-so-humble abode features 20 rooms, including two nurseries and three kitchens. Must be nice!
