She believes that moving from London Palace to what is believed to be Adelaide’s country house in Windsor, just outside the city, would be a huge relief to Prince William’s wife. According to her, Prince Harry once told one of her friends that “Kate was just a prisoner in Kensington Palace.”
“At first I thought, ‘Don’t be silly, it’s the nicest place to live in London.’ But then I realized that they were prisoners after all: yes, they have a nice house and a nice garden, but outside those walls every day are hundreds of people and tremendous security.” Catherine can’t walk in the park like Diana. Times have changed. The only place they can go is a helicopter landing field, so you’re very locked up anyway. Everyone out there knows what you’re doing and where you are.”
She believes William and Catherine, along with their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, “are enjoying the freedom they don’t have at Kensington Palace”. However, it was previously announced that the couple also keep London Palace as their residence, should they be in the city, as well as Anmer Hall, their country house in rural Norfolk. When kids finish school, they’ll be there, says a friend times You want to settle down permanently. “They love it there, it’s where they are happy.”
However, Windsor offers another advantage: Catherine’s parents live only 45 minutes away in Buckleybury.
