British Prince William and his wife, Princess Kate, are moving with their three children from Kensington Palace in central London to a home in Windsor Park, it was reported on Monday.
They will live in Adelaide Cottage, a relatively small house built in 1831, about a 10-minute walk from Windsor Castle.
As indicated by the British media, the purpose of the move, which has been speculated for some time, is to ensure the most normal and peaceful upbringing of children, which would be much more difficult in London. At the same time, it will allow Prince William to be closer to his grandmother, which is important as the 96-year-old Elizabeth II increasingly delegates various responsibilities to his father, Prince Charles and him.
The three children of the princely couple – 9-year-old George, 7-year-old Charlotte and 4-year-old Louis will be attending a private co-educational Lambrook Primary School near Ascot from the new school year.
The BBC noted that the choice of relatively modest by royal standards – and genuinely private – Adelaide Cottage would inevitably lead to comparisons with the much larger California estate where William’s younger brother, Prince Harry, and his American wife, Duchess Meghan, lived. . Harry and Meghan They explained their decision to resign as members of the royal family and go to the United States by a desire for more privacy, although their behavior since then shows that they are seeking publicity rather than peace.
William and Kate, despite their move, will retain Kensington Palace as a London residence for official use, as well as the Anmer Hall country estate in Norfolk, which was given to them by the Queen.
