Wills-Kat move into ‘modest’ home at Kensington Palace
London: Royal newlyweds Prince William and Catherine have finally moved into their first official marital home in Kensington Palace, it has been revealed.
The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge have chosen a ‘modest’ apartment, where William once lived with his late mother Princess Diana, and will use it as their London base.
Although their home boasts one of the most exclusive postcodes in the country, it is a fraction of the size of the five-bedroom, five-reception-room suite occupied by new neighbours, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.
Until now, William and Kate have used the Clarence House apartment that the prince shared with his brother, Prince Harry, when in London.
However, royal sources confirmed the couple had moved all their furniture into the renovated Palace apartment and stayed there for a couple of nights last week.
The palace, however, is only a temporary move as it is seen as being too small for long-term use – including bringing up a family.
The couple, both 29, still considers their rented farmhouse on the island of Anglesey as their main home.
Like all senior royals, William and Kate will not be charged rent for their flat.
