The Royal editor discussed the reasons why the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge might be moving closer to the Queen.

Mr Myers claimed there were rumours of a possible move as the Royal pair wanted to raise their family in the countryside.

He also explained that the new cottage did not need an expensive refurbishment like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Frogmore Cottage did.

There has been much discussed recently about other senior Royals stepping up to their Royal duties as the Queen has been having mobilisation issues due to her frail condition.

Mr Myers told Lorraine: “However that is all about to change because the Cambridges are moving to Windsor.

“And it seems as though that is going to be happening sooner, rather than later, this had been rumoured over the last sort of year, 18 months that they wanted to get out of London.

“They wanted to bring their children up in the countryside, now it’s been reported that this is going to be happening in a matter of weeks.

“Because they’ve taken sort of ownership of… It’s called Adelaide Cottage, it’s a very nice four place.

Mr Russell added: “Very modest in terms of Royal standards but, it’s just down the road from the Queen, about a ten-minute walk.

“And so the Cambridges are going to move there, they’re going to still keep Kensington Palace as their London base, however, this cottage doesn’t need anything doing to it.

“It doesn’t need a big refurb like Harry and Meghan’s Frogmore Cottage, literally down the road needed.

“And caused a huge load of controversy, so new place for the Cambridges, I think they will be visiting Granny and Great Granny quite a lot, and sort of pushing Prince Andrew further out into the distance.

According to other reports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will have no live-in staff at the cottage, and their Royal aides will be commuting to the new family home.

A source told The Sun newspaper that the Royal couple is looking forward to “starting a new chapter in their lives together”.

They said: “Kate and William were very keen for a modest home to start their new lives in Windsor.

“Adelaide Cottage fits the bill because it is a four-bedroom home and they do not need any more as they have no live-in staff.

“They were adamant they didn’t want anything too showy or anything that needed renovating or extra security so as not to be a burden on the taxpayer.

“The added bonus is they can send George, Charlotte and Louis to school together locally.

“The three children will enjoy running around and playing in the gardens, which is the kind of life they enjoy so much when at Anmer Hall.”

The source added: “They had no other demands than a pleasant family home close to schools and the Queen.

“They will pay rent from their private account.

“All they need to do is move in some of their treasured furniture and possessions.

“The whole family is looking forward to moving in this summer and starting a new chapter in their lives together in Windsor.”
