Kensington Palace announced the decision to move the children’s school in a statement on Monday.

According to the royal source, Prince William, Kate and their children will live in Adelaide Cottage, a four-bedroom house in the grounds of Windsor Castle, Berkshire, about 25 miles from London. The move brings the family closer to both Queen Elizabeth II, who also lives in Windsor Castle, and Kate’s family, who live in the same county.

However, the current Cambridges residence, Kensington Palace, remains the family’s primary residence, the royal source said.

There are currently no plans for live-in help, the source told CNN, adding that arrangements can be made for a nanny on the estate.

According to the statement, the couple’s three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, will all be moving to Lambrook School, a prestigious fee-paying school near Windsor.

The school is described on its website as a “leading co-educational Prep School for 615 boys and girls aged 3 and 13, set in 52 acres of beautiful Berkshire countryside.”

In the palace statement, the school’s principal, Jonathan Perry, said: “We are delighted that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will be joining us next September and are very much looking forward to welcoming the family as well as all our new arrivals. students, to our school community.”

William and Kate thanked their children’s former school in London, Thomas’s Battersea, and expressed their gratitude for the “happy start” it gave George and Charlotte.

In the same statement, Ben Thomas, director of Thomas’s London Day Schools, thanked Charlotte and George “for upholding the values ​​of the school and for their many contributions to school life”, and wished them every success in their new school.

The royal source told CNN the move will allow William and Kate to be “active parents in a busy school”.

“They want to be as normal a family as possible,” the source added.

The move also gives the young family more privacy at home due to the high security presence on the Queen’s estate.

The Cambridges moved with their family to London in 2017, having lived in Norfolk, eastern England, for several years. Until then, the couple used Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace as their official residence while performing royal duties.
