Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have officially confirmed that they are moving their home base to London in the fall.
This move reportedly means that the family will be spending less time at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, and they will move in to Kensignton Palace full time, according to People Magazine,
They will reportedly live in their Apartment 1A home on the Palace grounds with their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
“Their Royal Highnesses love their time in Norfolk and it will continue to be their home,” the couple wrote in a statement. “From this autumn, however, the Duke and Duchess will increasingly base their family at Kensington Palace. 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.”
Prince George and Princess Charlotte will reportedly attend school in London after the move.
“Prince George will begin school in London in September, and Princess Charlotte will also go to nursery and eventually school in London as well,” the statement continued. It made no mention of which school they will attend, though Prince William and Prince Harry both attended Wetherby Pre-Preparatory School in London so that may be where the children attend.
William is also reportedly making professional changes during this time.
“It has been a huge privilege to fly with the East Anglia Air Ambulance,” he said in the statement. “Following on from my time in the military, I have had experiences in this job I will carry with me for the rest of my life, and that will add a valuable perspective to my royal work for decades to come.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton will reportedly spend most of their time in London focused on their royal duties.
