Kate Middleton ‘ready for next chapter away from glorious Kensington prison’, experts claim

Kate Middleton and Prince William are said to be enjoying one final summer in their country estate of Anmer Hall in Norfolk before taking up residence Adelaide Cottage in Windsor.

The move from Kensington Palace will mark a new beginning for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 40, as their children Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four, will reportedly be starting at Lambrook School in Berkshire.

But it appears it's a welcome change as Kate's uncle Gary Goldsmith told The Sun that they're "ready for the next chapter" following their lives at Kensington Palace.

“William and Kate are going to have their hands full this summer as they move home to be nearer the Queen and settle the kids into a new school," he said, adding: "But I think they are ready for the next chapter in their lives.”

According to the publication, the royal couple made the decision to move in order to be closer to The Queen following Prince Philip's death last year, with Adelaide Cottage is just a 10-minute walk from Her Majesty's private apartments.

Royal biographer and editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward, said: “I think Wills and Kate need space to bring up their children."

Ingrid went on: "Kensington Palace is a glorious prison for kids – they want to be able to play football without being watched from behind the gates.

“I think Windsor will be perfect for them, as they will have lots of freedom and they can all be at school together.”

Prior to this, royal expert Katie Nicholl told OK! the couple are looking forward to some time away from the spotlight as she said: “Even though their brand new life in Windsor is about to begin, their summers on the coast will provide a sense of normality.

"The Cambridge family will be experiencing a significant amount of changes in the coming weeks; as well as moving to Windsor, George, Charlotte and Louis are all set to enrol at brand new schools, which is understandably a daunting concept.

“But they’re a very adaptable family so I’m sure they’ll welcome any and all new opportunities. Windsor is a place that the children are already familiar with, so it’s likely they’ll adjust very quickly.

“Up until this moment, they’ve maintained a happy balance between the city and the countryside – London and Norfolk – but if Windsor works for them on a ‘full time’ basis, it’s very likely they’ll remain down there for the foreseeable future.”
