Prince William and Kate Middleton are officially moving into London. The long term move to London from their Norfolk home would make way for more public appearances by the royal couple and a change of their children’s school plans.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will officially be living long term in the Kensington Palace residence called Apartment 1A where they have stayed at since 2014 while doing their royal duties. But that does not mean they will leave their beautiful Norfolk country house though as they reportedly keep it.
Royal Couple Says Hello To London, Long Term
Come fall, the move will be for the royal Highnesses to “continue to increase their official work” on behalf of the Queen. They also want to give more time to the causes and charities they support by being in London.
As for the Duke and Duchess’ children, moving to London will give way for them to go to school to the big city. The 3-year-old Prince George is currently enrolled in Norfolk’s Westacre Montessori School and is expected to attend school in London this September.
Meanwhile, the 20-month-old Princess Charlotte is also expected to go to school in London as well. As to when Princess Charlotte will start school or where they will go to is still kept hidden by the royal officials. But according to People, Wetherby Pre-Preparatory School is among the speculated names.

It is also announced in a royal statement issued by Kensington Palace’s official Twitter handle that the Duke of Cambridge is officially saying goodbye to East Anglian Air Ambulance. According to the statement, it is “in line with his commitment to fly with them for two years.”
While quoting the Duke, the announcement stated how through his experience with EAAA, he gained “valuable perspective” for the rest of his life that he will carry with his royal work in decades to come.
He also thanked the people at EAAA, Babcock and Cambridge Airport for their “friendship and support.” He ends his statement by saying, “My admiration for our country’s medical and emergency services community could not be any stronger.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s plans for 2017 only show their increased effort in giving time for their royal duties. Moreover, as their children grow, their schooling is also put into consideration as well.
