Prince William & Kate Middleton Make a Major Move for Their Family

It's official! The royal family is moving back to London, after several years of country living. Prince George is starting school in the fall, so Prince William, Kate Middleton, and of course Princess Charlotte are all transitioning soon to spend more time in the city.


Kengsington Palace released a statement on Friday announcing the move -- but it doesn't look like they're completely giving up their home at Anmer Hall just yet. According to the statement, the Cambridges "love their time in Norfolk and will continue to call it home."

The press release continued, "From this autumn, however, the Duke and Duchess will increasingly base their family at Kensington Palace." Prince William will end his two-year tenure with the East Anglian Air Ambulance this summer, which works out perfectly for the family to relocate before little Georgie starts school in the fall.

The third in line to the throne has been attending Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk, and it's been widely speculated that he will be enrolled in Wetherby Pre-Preparatory school. The new school is opening in the fall, and is just a few blocks from Kensington Palace. No word on where Charlotte will attend nursery school, or when.

After all, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have definitely made sure to prioritize their children up to this point. We can't see anything changing in that aspect.
