A royal source told the outlet that the duke and duchess will live with their children in Adelaide Cottage, a four-bedroom house on the grounds of Windsor Castle about 25 miles outside of London.
Along with giving their children a chance at perhaps a more normal life, the relocation will bring the Cambridges closer to Queen Elizabeth II, at Windsor Castle as well as Kate Middleton’s family who reside in the same county.
Cambridges Have Many Homes
The duke and duchess will, of course, retain their current residence with Kensington Palace remaining the family’s primary residence a royal source said. CNN reports that there are, as of yet, no plans for any live-in help, though arrangements could be made for a nanny at Adelaide Cottage.

The move is also expected to give the Cambridge’s more privacy at home due to the very high security that surrounds the Queen. The couple first moved to London in 2017 after having lived in Norfolk in Eastern England for several years.
