  • The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are planning a royal knees-up for their Kensington Palace housewarming

    Kate Middleton and Prince William are reportedly planning on throwing a huge star-studded charity concert to celebrate moving into their new Kensington Palace abode.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who moved baby Prince George into his first proper London home at Apartment 1A last month, have already lined up veteran rocker Bon Jovi and country starlet Taylor Swift to perform at their newly-renovated mansion, as well as British singers James Blunt and Eliza Doolittle.

    It’s thought that guests will be welcomed with a champagne reception in the King’s Gallery ballroom before sitting down to a lavish pre-concert dinner, before Bon Jovi kicks off his performance in the royal gardens.

    Even more exciting, the celebrity-packed musical bash will be open to the public. 500 tickets are set to go on sale priced at £500 each, while 250 will be held as ‘VVIP’ passes. Eek!

    Due to take place on November 26 at the Palace’s State Apartments, all proceeds will be donated to a cause close to the Kate and Will’s heart – homeless charity Centrepoint.

    While Clarence House is yet to come out with the official confirmation on the news, we’ve got our fingers crossed that this royal knees-up goes ahead.

    Plus, Prince William is known to be a fan of US rock group Bon Jovi – the Duke famously performed a karaoke cover of the band’s hit song Livin’ On A Prayer at the wedding of his cousin Zara Phillips to Mike Tindall two years ago.

    Surely a repeat of that is worth the ticket price alone?
