Kate and William to move family closer to Queen in Berkshire after Duke’s 40th birthday | Royal | News

The move will see the couple leave Kensington Palace, which has been their main residency since 2017 following time at Anmer Hall in Norfolk. It is reported that the royals are set to take their son Prince George, 8, and daughter Princess Charlotte, 7, out of their current school in Battersea at the culmination of this school year.

They will then join their younger brother, Prince Louis, 4, at a new school in September.

The decision has been made with Prince William, who is set to turn 40 soon, joking privately that he is finding it “so daunting”, reports The Times.

According to a news report by the broadsheet, Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, will leave their prep school, Thomas’s Battersea, at the end of this term and are expected to enrol at a school near Windsor.

Prince Louis, 4, who made his mark on the Platinum Jubilee weekend with a display of extravagant face-pulling and other antics, will join them.

Kensington Palace will remain the family’s London home, housing their private and press office, and they will frequently visit Anmer Hall, their Norfolk refuge.

A friend of Prince William told the publication: “They absolutely love it up there — it’s their happy place.

“Their plan is to make Anmer a permanent base after the school years.”

The Cambridges could, in time, move into Windsor Castle, where the Queen has lived since the pandemic and the death of her husband Prince Philip.
