The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been keeping busy attending and planning for attendance at a number of events in upcoming months and are also preparing to make a move to London from their country home in Norfolk.
Th reason for the move is reportedly for various reasons, such as their children’s schooling and also so they can begin to assist more in taking on more royal duties from Queen Elizabeth, who was quite ill recently and who is now in her 90th year.

A Kensington Palace spokesperson has verified that Kate Middleton and Prince William will be spending more and more time in London and at the palace and it has also been made known that the pair have already begun making alterations to their new estate at Kensington by having a $30,000 hedge planted for privacy, as The Daily Mail recently shared.
“.. the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are moving their family back to Kensington Palace from Norfolk, they are clearly not taking any chances. A team of gardeners and construction workers have begun planting an 820ft-long wall of conifers along the western side of the royal residence in London.”
It has also recently been made apparent that by taking on more of the monarch’s duties, this has meant that Kate and William are having to put their own wants and wishes aside in place of the Queen’s wants and wishes. The latest rumor regarding the royal couple and their new responsibilities, indicates that although Prince William and Duchess Kate had intended to spend Valentine’s Day together, Queen Elizabeth has insisted Kate appear at a certain event solo and away from William, which means the plans the two had for a romantic day have been put aside to meet the monarch’s demands.
Celebrity Dirty Laundry relays details from a source about these latest claims.
“Reports say that the Duchess will be visiting a RAF base in Cambridgeshire on Valentine’s Day. Kate will be visiting with air cadets from the Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire Wing Air Training Corps. She’ll even have a chance to fly a flight simulator during her visit. “
The publication also states that it is unclear whether Prince William will join Kate on the most romantic day of the year while she visits the RAF base or not, but that there is a good chance he will not. However, it sounds as though it will make for one exciting day if it means having the chance to fly in the simulator. The busy mom of two also likely enjoys getting out to various events, despite obviously adoring her little ones and enjoying being a hands-on mother to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Kensington Palace released a statement about Kate’s visit to the base, which indicates what the special day means for cadets.
“The week acts as an initial ‘camp experience’ for cadets who are in their first six months of membership. Her Royal Highness will join the cadets as they view a Tutor aircraft, and participate in a personal development training session.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton are definitely starting off 2017 as devoted royals after being criticized last year for working the least out of the other royals. While Kate only worked 68 days in 2016, Camilla Parker Bowles and the Queen worked double that amount. The new year began with the royal couple demonstrating their intention to step it up, seeing as they did not embark on their usual trip to Mustique in January and actually returned from their time off to work much earlier than they have in previous years. It’s clear that Kate Middleton and Prince William are focused on being hardworking members of the royal family and are happy to meet the Queen’s expectations.
