William And Catherine's Children Experience A Big Change After Moving To Windsor

Prince William and Kate Middleton, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have planned a major move for their family this summer. The couple — along with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — are reportedly relocating to Adelaide Cottage in order to be closer to the queen, who is now residing at Windsor Castle. The Cambridges had been splitting their time between Kensington Palace in London and their country estate, Anmer Hall on the rural Sandringham Estate. But as the years have gone by, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have decided that the palace isn't the best place to raise their children.

"Neither William or Kate have ever been London people and have never enjoyed the chaos of the city . . . Whilst their home at Kensington Palace is highly secure, they have often felt overlooked and that they lacked privacy. The older their children get, the more apparent this has become," royal expert Katie Nicholl told OK! (via Cosmopolitan UK). "[T]hey need a base that is close to the capital so they can easily return for public engagements and events. Windsor seems like the ideal situation."

Adelaide Cottage, which sits on the 655-acre royal estate in Berkshire and boasts four bedrooms, per the Daily Mail, will give the family the privacy they desire and allow William and Kate to give their children as normal an upbringing as possible. Of course, any move brings change — and George, Charlotte, and Louis are preparing for a big one.

The Cambridge children will be starting a new school in the fall

Prince William and Kate Middleton are moving their family to Windsor, which means their three children will be starting a new school in the fall. Prince George and Princess Charlotte had been attending Thomas's Battersea in London, but will now enroll at Lambrook School in Berkshire, with Prince Louis joining them, according to a press release from Buckingham Palace (per Reuters).

The new school charges tuition of up to 50,000 pounds per year for all three kids and includes a swimming pool, a nine-hole golf course, an orchard with a variety of animals, and a woodland where kids are encouraged to get dirty (via BBC). "We are delighted that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will be joining us this coming September and very much look forward to welcoming the family, as well as all of our new pupils, to our school community," its headmaster Jonathan Perry said in a statement (per MSN).

This isn't the only change the move to Windsor will bring to George, Charlotte, and Louis. Their longtime nanny, Maria Borrallo, will no longer be living with them because there isn't enough room for her in their new home, according to The Telegraph. Instead, she will be staying at another property with other household staff.
