Kate Middleton’s ongoing battles with the Queen are no secret, at least if you go by the various tabloid publications which have published “inside scoops” on the situation between the royals at the palace.
According to Life & Style magazine’s August 25 print issue — in which the cover feature is entitled, “Kate & William Tell the Queen: We’re Leaving!” — a number of alleged “insiders” spill the beans on a whole host of gossip, but mainly that Kate and her husband, Prince William, plan to break with royal protocol and move out from their newly renovated apartment at Kensington Palace and into their summer home at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
One “royal insider” told the publication, “The queen is furious, It’s a huge slap in the face for her. Kate [and] William are sending the message that they refuse to be forced by the queen to do anything” regarding their alleged plans to relocate a good 100 miles away from London. Prince William plans to work as a helicopter pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance starting this fall.
The International Business Times reported on Monday that regardless of the Queen’s personal angst regarding where Kate Middleton lives with her grandson and great grandson, insiders reported that, for her part, Kate simply can’t wait to move into the cozy 10-bedroom dwelling.
“The move can’t come soon enough for Kate. She feels utterly trapped in London and living in Kensington Palace,” the source said.
According to the source, Kate is also excited to be moving to Norfolk as she has a whole bunch of friends there and is already planning play-dates for Prince George.
“Kate has lots of friends with kids who live in Norfolk, and she is already planning a very full social life for her and William and George. George won’t have a shortage of playmates, unlike in London, where he doesn’t have much freedom.”
