William And Kate Reportedly Looking For New Family Home — Here's Why

William And Kate Reportedly Looking For New Family Home — Here's Why

Prince William and Duchess Kate are "seriously considering" moving their family to a new home in Windsor, according to a report this weekend. Their usual family home is Anmer Hall in Norfolk, but a transition to Windsor could make sense for several reasons. Here's what we know so far.

The Cambridge family could soon be on the move.

Prince William, Duchess Kate and their children currently split time between the royal residences Anmer Hall and Kensington Palace. However, fans may need to get used to a new home for the Cambridge family in the near future — here's why.

Prince William, Duchess Kate moving to new home?

This weekend, Daily Mail reported that the Duke and Duchess are "seriously considering" a move to Windsor, which would bring them closer to The Queen and to the Middleton family.

They are apparently "eyeing up" residences in the area that would be suitable to raise Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. 

The family of five currently calls Anmer Hall home, but a source told the newspaper that all the travel from the Norfolk residence to London and Windsor "doesn't really work anymore."

Daily Mail also suggests the move is a sign that William and Kate are "preparing to take on a far more senior role at the heart of the Royal Family."

Queen Elizabeth, after all, is 95 years old, and Prince William will become heir to the throne when Prince Charles eventually succeeds her.

The Queen also now lives at Windsor Castle, as she relocated there from her typical home, Buckingham Palace, early in the COVID-19 pandemic.

So, for royal watchers, it's definitely a storyline to keep an eye on. Fans grew especially familiar with Anmer Hall during lockdown, when the Cambridge family regularly posted updates and did video calls from the home.

But we'll see if the Duke and Duchess settle down with the kids in a new royal residence — nearer The Queen and Kate's family — in Windsor.
