Is Prince William and Duchess Kate moving to Windsor? According to media reports, the couple is drawn to the Queen.

Are Prince William (39) and Duchess Kate (39) planning to move to Windsor soon to be close to the Queen (95)? This is now reported by the “Mail on Sunday” citing an insider. Accordingly, the royal couple is said to have been looking for a property in the area, which could be a sign that the two will soon occupy higher positions in the British royal family.

According to the report, the well-being of their three children, George (8), Charlotte (6) and Louis (3), also plays an important role for William and Kate. The couple is said to have temporarily set their sights on the Fort Belvedere country house, where the Queen’s uncle, King Edward VIII (1894-1972), signed his abdication papers in 1936. The property is owned by the Crown Estate and leased to the Weston family, who are close friends with the royals. However, according to the source, Fort Belvedere is no longer in the running.

Change in line of succession?

With a move to Windsor, the Cambridges would not only be close to Queen Elizabeth II, but also to Kate’s parents. There is also a good connection to London to Williams and Kate’s office in Kensington Palace. It is unclear whether the homely change is related to a change in the line of succession, but it could be the most significant sign of this so far. It has been speculated for months whether Prince Charles (72), the Queen’s first successor, will hand over the crown directly to his son William.
