Prince William and Kate Middleton are "seriously considering" moving to Windsor to be closer to the Queen, according to a Royal source.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and their three children, currently split their time between Kensington Palace in London and Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

But, a Royal insider revealed to the Mail on Sunday that the couple had been "eyeing up" properties in Windsor where they would spend the majority of their time and commute to London when needed. Prince George and Princess Charlotte currently attend Thomas's Battersea Prep School in London while two-year-old Prince Louis attends Willcocks Nursery in Kensington.

Speaking about the potential move, the source said: "Anmer Hall made sense while William was a helicopter pilot in East Anglia and it was useful for Christmases at Sandringham but it doesn’t really work any more. It’s a little too far away for weekends but Windsor is a perfect compromise."

Their potential move coincides with the Queen's own plans. Traditionally, the Queen spends her working week at Buckingham Palace and uses Windsor Castle as her weekend residence. But according to the insider, she now plans to relocate permanently to Windsor when she returns from her summer holiday in Balmoral.

The Cambridge's move to Windsor would mean they'd not only be closer to the Queen, but also to Kate's family too. Her parents Michael and Carole Middleton, as well as her sister Pippa, live in nearby Bucklebury, just an hour's drive away.

William and Kate wouldn't be the first Royals to relocate recently. In March 2020 Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moved to Los Angeles with their son Archie while Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank moved back into Frogmore Cottage.
