  • The Cambridges are one of the most talked-about families in the world, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children making headline news on the regular.

    The family of five got the world talking most this year about their housing situation, with the Cambridges relocating to Windsor later this summer to be closer to The Queen.

    Yes, the Cambridges are getting a new Windsor abode, previously splitting their time between their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, and their London abode, Kensington Palace.

    The new pad is thought to be Adelaide Cottage, a sweet and modest property on The Queen’s Windsor estate.

    “Nestled in the Berkshire countryside, Adelaide Cottage has been in the Royal Family since 1831,” explained Chris Harvey, an Interior Expert at Stelrad, via The Sun. “It is located on the 4,800-acre Windsor Great Park, which is privately managed by the Crown Estate.”

    He continued: “Adelaide Cottage is just half of a mile from Windsor Castle, Queen Elizabeth’s primary residence. It has been renovated in honour of the Queen.”

    This according to experts has extended to the decor, with the new home featuring traditional touches from French windows, multiple fire places and a gingerbread trim, to a covered veranda and even a regal porte cochère.

    It appears however that the Cambridges’ exciting new Windsor home will not be the family’s third property. In fact, it will be their fourth, with the Duke and Duchess actually having a secret third home.

    The property in question? Tam-Na-Ghar, a charming house on the Queen’s Balmoral Estate.

    The three-bedroom cottage was a gift to Prince William from the Queen Mother shortly before her 2002 death and according to friends, the couple has had some of their happiest times there.

    Following the royal family’s move to Windsor, they are expected to retain their three other properties, but it is thought that Kensington Palace will become a space for work purposes.

    Well, this is exciting.
