To be closer to the Queen, William is considering transferring his family to Windsor.
According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are “seriously considering” relocating to Windsor in order to bring their family closer to the Queen.
Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their three children, George, Charlotte, and Louis, live in Kensington Palace in London and Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
However, relocating to Windsor is becoming a more viable and feasible alternative.
This shift could be the clearest indication yet that the pair is prepared to take on a much more senior role within the Royal Family.
According to a royal source, both William and Kate have been “eyeing up” lodging in the area. “Anmer Hall made sense while William was a helicopter pilot in East Anglia, and it was useful for Christmas in Sandringham,” the source claimed, but it no longer makes sense. Weekends are a little too far away.
“However, Windsor is an excellent compromise.
“They’re looking into several choices in the area.”
If the Cambridges, both 39, decide to relocate, Fort Belvedere, a Grade II-listed property in Windsor Great Park, is thought to be on the table.
The Queen, who is 95 years old, intends to return to Windsor Castle after her visit to Balmoral.
Her uncle, King Edward VIII, signed his abdication papers in the fort in 1936.
