Prince William and Kate Middleton will leave Kensington Palace soon — with their young kids the main reason for the big move.

It is claimed the Cambridges have their children’s welfare at the forefront of their mind and feel they will benefit moving away from the bright lights of London to a more sleepier idyll on the Windsor estate, rumoured to be Adelaide Cottage.

They will eventually call Windsor Castle home once Prince Charles succeeds the Queen and becomes king, while future talk is of William and Kate heading to their country home, Anmer Hall in Norfolk, once the children have all left school, reports the Mirror.

Currently at prep school in Battersea, Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 7, will join a private co-educational establishment near to the home of the duchess’s parents in Bucklebury, and they will be joined by younger brother Prince Louis, 4, in September.

A friend of the Cambridges told the Daily Telegraph: “The reality is they are quite confined in what they can do in London.

“The kids can’t go into the park and kick a football with friends.

“Their plan is to be there for the next 10 to 15 years, then move to Anmer, which is so special to them.”

The move to Windsor will come about despite a recent £12 million refurbishment of Kensington Palace.

The work, which involved around 100 staff, was carried out so that the Cambridges could “move in safely”

The List had reported: “Kate ‘absolutely adored’ the home and also liked the property’s location near Kensington High Street.

“For the royal couple to move in safely however, major work was needed.”

Meanwhile, William turns 40 next week and is poised to get down with the kids and join TikTok.

A senior aide said: “He is very aware of the need to use new ways of communication. I wouldn’t rule out a Cambridge appearance on TikTok.

“He understands that a life of public service in the 21st century is going to be done differently to your grandmother and father.

“He realises the world is a different place to when his grandmother took it on and we’re in very different times. He is going to step up and deliver.”

William has joked that he is finding the milestone “so daunting” and during an engagement at a youth organisation in Wolverhampton last year with Kate, who turned 40 in January, he joked: “We are still calling ourselves young, but we are not.

“I don’t see myself as that young any more.”
