Kate Middleton, Prince William Praised For 'No-Cost' Rumored Relocation To Adelaide Cottage
Kate Middleton and Prince William have recently received compliments and praises from a royal expert. This comes after reports of their potential move to Windsor surfaced on media platforms.
Express UK said expert Cameron Walker shared positive remarks with host Pandora Forsyth during an episode of the “Royal Round-Up” podcast. As stated, he deemed the potential relocation to Adelaide Cottage “smart” as it would mean not forking out millions of taxpayers’ funds for refurbishments.
The royal commentator reportedly explained that the royal cottage, which is on the Windsor estate, was refurbished in 2015. Hence, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge “can just move in” not needing “to spend any extra money.”
Walker continued that the possible relocation of Prince William and Kate Middleton to Adelaide Cottage is unlike what Prince Harry and Meghan Markle did in 2018, per the publication.
He is said to have recalled that the former working royals spent nearly $3 million of taxpayers’ money “on doing up Frogmore Cottage.”
The royal expert reportedly added that the cottage is “within the kind of royal security perimeter.” Accordingly, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge “do not need to spend on any extra security or anything like that.”
Walker is also claimed to have speculated that the future King and Queen Consort “would keep their home Anmer Hall in Norfolk… as a family country retreat.”
As for their rooms in apartment 1a of Kensington Palace, they would reportedly likely be “turned into staff offices,” with their aides commuting to Windsor.
The royal expert’s assertions come after sources have claimed that Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their three children will move to Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor estate. But, People said that this remains “unconfirmed,” adding that “the palace had no comment” regarding the matter.
The same magazine did, however, state that two of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children will leave their prep school, Thomas’s Battersea, in London, “at the end of the current term.” It also claimed that the two young royals will “enroll in a school in the Windsor area.”
Elsewhere in the report, People noted that the rumored relocation was first reported by the Sunday Times. As claimed, the move “reflects the changing needs” of the three young Cambridge Royals.
The magazine previously said that Adelaide Cottage is a few minutes away from Windsor Castle, which is Queen Elizabeth II’s primary residence. Also, it has the same distance from Frogmore Cottage, the official U.K. residence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
