Prince William and his new bride Kate Middleton are to make Kensington Palace their London home.

The couple are expected to divide their time between their current home in Anglesey, where Wills works as a pilot for the armed forces and a small apartment in the London Palace.

A royal source told the Daily Mail: “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.”

“The public want to see them, and it makes sense for them to have a base in the capital.They both love London and 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.”

William will at least be familiar with the des-res in Britain’s most
pricey residential street. He grew up there with his brother Harry and
lived their with mother Princess Diana until her tragic death in 1997.

However while the newlyweds, who attended Saturday’s Derby at Epsom racecourse looking happy and relaxed, are not expected to live in Kensington Palace indefinitely.

A spokeswoman for the couple said yesterday: “We can confirm the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official London residence will temporarily become a property at Kensington Palace. Options for long-term solutions are still being considered.”
