Inside Adelaide Cottage as Kate and William prepare to move to Windsor

Prince William and Kate Middleton confirmed that they, along with their three children will be moving to Windsor ahead of the school term starting.

A statement from Kensington Palace read: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have today announced that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will attend Lambrook School in Berkshire from September 2022.

“Their Royal Highnesses are hugely grateful to Thomas’s Battersea where George and Charlotte have had a happy start to their education since 2017 and 2019 respectively and are pleased to have found a school for all three of their children which shares a similar ethos and values to Thomas’s.”

The family who currently split their time between Kensington Palace and their weekend home in Amner Hall in Norfolk, are set to move into Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor estate.

The family will use the pretty 19th century Adelaide Cottage as their base after the Queen gave them permission to lease the four-bedroom Grade II listed cottage, which belongs to the Crown Estate.

And it's certainly a beautiful place to call home, nestled in Home Park in Windsor.

The sweet property is owned by the Queen, but it can be leased for free, or for low rent.

It's named after Princess Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, the wife of King William IV, and it was previously occupied by Group Captain Peter Townsend.

It's a known fact that the Cambridges love the countryside, so it looks like the perfect bolthole for the couple.

The beautiful cottage underwent a renovation in 2015, and boasts some beautiful decor as a result, according to reports.

It's believed that the main bedroom has a ceiling covered in gilded dolphins and a rope decoration, as well as a marble Graeco-Egyptian fireplace.

The property is the most newly refurbished on the estate and will certainly be appropriate for a busy family of five.

Adelaide Cottage was nearly the home of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, and it actually boasts one of the most scandalous royal love stories of all time.

One of the most famous former residents was Princess Margaret's love interest, Group Captain Peter Townsend.

Family, Peter Townsend embarked on a famous love affair with Princess Margaret, and their relationship was viewed as sordid as Peter was a divorced man, 16 years older than her.
