prince william catherine kensington palace Prince William, Kate Middleton move into Kensington Palace apartmentThe Royal couple has returned from their tour of Canada and Los Angeles and has moved into their apartment at Kensington Palace, reports People. Their initial residence is a two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment that will serve as a place to land when they are in London.

However, since Prince William is currently stationed in Wales for his service in the Royal Air Force, which is also where Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge will spend a lot of her time, the two-bedroom apartment in the palace is likely a temporary residence, says an insider. The couple will likely choose a bigger space within the palace once they are permanently in London (and we would presume starting a family).

Kensington Palace is located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea and has housed Royal family members since the 1600s. In addition to the newlyweds Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the palace also houses the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester (Prince Richard and wife Birgitte), the Duke and Duchess of Kent (Prince Edward and wife Katharine) and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent (Prince Michael and wife Baroness Marie von Reibnitz).

In 1981, Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales made their home there and it remained Diana’s residence until her death in 1997, making it the chief residence where Prince William and Prince Harry were raised.
