Kate Middleton May Be Forced to Share Her Home With an Unlikely 'Roommate'


Kensington Palace

Ok, so this probably (maybe) isn't anywhere close to being true, but we're going to go ahead and entertain the thought anyway, m'kay?

Wait for it -- Kate Middleton may be forced to live with Cressida Bonas, Prince Harry's new girlfriend, at Kensington Palace. Here's how the roommate deal will supposedly go down. When Prince William and Kate move into their new, lavish apartment at the Palace, Prince Harry will turn their old digs into a "love nest" of sorts for him and Cressida and they can all reside together in a compound as one big, happy family.

Or not.

OMG. If you were Kate Middleton, would you honestly warm up to the idea of your brother-in-law and his flavor of the month shacking up on the same premises as you, your husband -- and your newborn baby?

(Um, I don't think so.)

Honestly, I can't think of anything worse than having your younger, party-hardy in-laws all up in your grill when you're trying to adjust to life as new parents.

And forget about the new baby thing for a minute -- I'm not sure having family members as direct neighbors is a good idea in the first place. Sure, it's nice if they're in the same town so you can get together often and support each other and all that good stuff -- but would you really want your sibling living right next door?

Hold on, don't answer that. This is Prince Harry we're talking about, and I'm thinking he's probably a pretty cool dude to hang around with. I'm not sure about Cressida, but I'd be down with borrowing a cup of sugar from Harry for sure. (And I'm sure he keeps the wine chiller well stocked too. Score.)

But I gotta go with my gut on this one -- I highly doubt this report is true. And if by some chance it is, something tells me there's no way Queen Elizabeth will let Harry move his girlfriend onto royal territory, or at least not anytime soon. (The nude Vegas partying scandal was embarrassment enough.)

Would you ever want to live next door to a family member?

um, doesn't their new "apartment" have like 28 rooms or something? it's not like they're living in a 1 bedroom apartment in a tenament building with paper thin walls and drug dealers next door

Yeah, I don't see this happening. No way is the Queen Mum about to let them live together.

Sourcing Celebrity Durty Laundry is just wrong. Can't some legitimate news stories be printed?

My sister and her husband and son lived with me, my husband and son. It was really nice because I was able to work and she watched my son. Our babies we're 8 months when we all lived together in a 4 bedroom 2bath home. They left when her son was 2. We had our moments of arguing but for the most time it was great

Growing up I lived 2 doors down from my grandparents and my Aunt & Uncle lived across the street. It was great! I absolutely loved it and it makes me sad that we don't live closer to family so my boys can have the experience of "running away" to grandma and grandpa's. My husband and I also live with my brother for a couple years by the end we were ready to live seperately. I do miss it because I don't get to see him as often anymore. Every time I see a house go up for sale in my neighborhood I tell him about it.

At one point in my life, pretty much my whole family (maternal and paternal) all lived in the same street or same neighborhood.  It was soooo fun.

I will let you realize how absurd this is yourself. A palace is VERY large, normally the ENTIRE ROYAL FAMILY lives in one, with their staff, and might not see one another. Wow, way to show that you have no idea what goes on overseas.

They would never encounter each other...and i dont think william and kate will have trouble adjusting as new parents..all that staff.
