Kate Middleton Feels 'Imprisoned' at Kensington Palace

Kate Middleton and Prince William

OMG, talk about first world ROYAL problems.

After spending a massive amount of money renovating Kensington Palace, it looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton are STILL unhappy with their living arrangements and are ready to move their family.

But there's one problem, of course. The couple spent over a whopping $7 million to renovate their digs and are now moving out because they’re unhappy with all the media attention they’ve been getting in London. Yeah, talk about making the British taxpayers PISSED.


According to the Daily Mail, Wills and Kate apparently feel so miserable in their palace that they’re willing to relocate to the English countryside so they can be closer to their circle of well-connected friends. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge want to raise Prince George in Norfolk and plan to make an official royal announcement sometime in September. A source tells the site:

William has said that while Kensington Palace is their long-term home, and that the plan is that it will always be so, but they both love the countryside. They enjoy the quiet life they can have there, and feel somewhat imprisoned in the Palace. Anmer is going to be perfect for a couple of years -- that is the plan.

The Duchess is also reportedly feeling aggravated by all the attention she’s getting from the public when she’s running around town shopping or taking Prince George out on walks. Oh, someone get a Jenny Packham dress she can wipe her tears away with. The source added:

Kate is bothered by how much paparazzi and commoner attention she attracts in London. She no longer walks Prince George around Kensington Park because she’s been photographed there a few times. She also hates that people pay attention to how much she shops in London. She misses the freedom she had in Wales to go undercover.

While there’s no doubt that there are some aspects of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s lives that are a royal pain, these two seem to be complaining about nothing. They don’t know what the feeling of imprisonment is unless they’ve been cooped up in a cubicle for eight hours a day or deployed overseas and can’t return home. There are far worse things in this world than being bothered by “commoners” on the street. Sheesh. These two take so much yet give so little in return and have the audacity to complain about their lives, too. It’s as if the Obamas would suddenly decide that the White House isn’t good enough for them and wanted to move full-time to Hawaii. We sure know that would never happen.

Do you think William and Kate are making the right choice by moving to Norfolk?
