Kate Middleton is reportedly through with Kensington Palace.
The Duchess of Cambridge has been living in a remodeled, spacious apartment in the palace since last fall, one specially built for her and Prince William to raise their son. But reports now say that Kate Middleton is pushing for the family to move to Anmer Hall, a country home the couple shares at the Queen’s Sandringham estate.
The mansion was a 30th birthday present given to Prince William by the Queen, and it’s a setting that Kate reportedly thinks is much better to raise Prince George.
Celeb Dirty Laundry provided details of the possible move:
“Apparently the idea of raising her kids in a quiet, peaceful setting nearly 100 miles outside of London is really appealing to the duchess. We already know that Kate seems to have a pretty clear cut idea of the kind of mother that she is aiming to be and it’s nothing like the royals that have come before her.”
The report added that Kate Middleton is considering home schooling her almost 1-year-old son, so the home at Anmer Hall could be a better option.
If true, the move would be a bit strange considering the work put into the apartment. Last year, Kate dropped a reported $1.5 million into renovating and babyproofing the space.
Sources said the apartment was not particularly fancy, but suited Kate and William quite well.
“Some might say it’s a little dull,” a friend told Vanity Fair, “but they love it. I saw William recently and he is so happy. They’ve grown out of clubbing and have no interest in parties. They just enjoy being together at home. No one bothers them in Anglesey, there are few paparazzi, and they love the countryside.”
It could be that Kate Middleton needs a bit more space. After all, Prince George has already started walking at just 10 months.
