There is quite a buzz in the media circles, with news that Kate Middleton, Prince William and little Prince George and Princess Charlotte are moving back to Kensington Palace in London, leaving behind their "perfect family home" in Norfolk. Three years ago, the royal couple moved into Anmer Hall, which was the hub of the "normal childhood" for the kids.
They got a lot of privacy from "prying eyes," according to Telegraph. Although it is now time for some change, and though Kate isn't too happy with the shift, "the Duchess is said to be privately resigned to moving back to London."
One reason could be that Kate Middleton is pregnant again. As she suffers from "extreme morning sickness" and needs support and help to take care of the other two children, she can get all the support that she needs in the London palace.
Moreover, the reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, is getting too old to maintain her responsibilities. So, she has already handed over some of her royal positions to other members of the royal family. Before Christmas, she transferred her patronage of 25 organizations to other royal members, including Prince William and Kate.
Hence, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be shifting to more public lives and get nearer to Buckingham Palace and Queen Elizabeth, while transport too would be more easily available.
Said an inside source, "The Duke, in particular, has a lot of thinking to do over the Christmas and New Year period... He has his job as an Air Ambulance pilot, which he enjoys very much, but he also wants to take on more royal duties, as does the Duchess."
Moreover, Prince George is already three years old and ready to start his pre-prep education. While he has so far been attending the Westacre Montessori nursery school near Sandringham home, he has reportedly been enrolled for an "elite prep school" in London.
Both Prince William and Harry attended the $8000-a-term Wetherby School in London, a "pre-prep" school chosen by Princess Diana. As it is just a short mile from Kensington Palace, it has always been "a firm favorite" of the two, according to Daily Mail.
Still, the shift to London is quite fraught with a lot of changes in not only their time or space, but in the entire lives of Prince William and Kate Middleton as well as their kids.
