Prince William and Kate Middleton Move Into Diana's Old Home

After all the honeymooning, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are ready to settle down. The royals are set to move into a “modest apartment” in London’s Kensington Palace. The home is the same one William and Prince Harry once lived in with their late mother.

But of course, William and Kate won’t have just one home. They’ll split their time between Kensington Palace and their Anglesey cottage in North Wales. William is an RAF search-and-rescue pilot in the town.

“They are really looking forward to moving in soon and having a base in the capital. Kate and William love the peace and quiet of Anglesey but they can’t just stay holed up there for the next two years,” a source said.

Somebody’s got to save Pippa from the limelight.

“The public want to see them, and it makes sense for them to have a base in the capital. They both love London have lots of friends there and it’s a good place for Kate to get stuck into thinking about what charities she wants to promote and other work she might take on.”

The Duke and Duchess are supposed to stay in the apartment for about a year until they find a more permanent residence.

“After looking at a few apartments the couple decided this is the one they feel most comfortable in,” the source added.

“Kate has enjoyed picking things out to decorate it and make it their home.”

Something tells me she’s not scouring the labyrinth that is Ikea.
