Kate Middleton and Prince William is not going to transfer to Windsor Fort but – inside footage
Kate and William, the new Prince and Princess of Wales, reportedly won’t move into Windsor Castle as expected just yet, despite them being rumored to when William became first in line to the throne. After Her Late Majesty’s death, it was always presumed that Prince William and Kate Middleton would move into Windsor Castle, where the Queen had been living more permanently since the pandemic.
Early in September, William, Kate, Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte, and Prince George moved to Adelaide Cottage to be closer to Her Late Majesty who died on September 8.
Now, the new Prince and Princess of Wales are keen to hold off on moving to Windsor Castle soon to avoid changing the children’s lives in quick succession, according to Marie Claire.
The family will reportedly eventually move to the castle but, for now, they are happy at the cottage. A friend told People, that William and Kate live a life of a “modern Royal Family doing normal things”.
They added: “They love that the kids can go out on their bikes and cycle around the estate, and they are all really excited to meet everyone. It’s a real little community.”

The new Prince and Princess of Wales, both 40, relocated with their three children, Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four, from London to Windsor at the end of the summer.
As the family of five settles into their new home at Adelaide Cottage, insiders say that they will eventually live in the 1,000-year-old Windsor Castle itself.
The ancestral seat of the British Royal Family, Windsor Castle is the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world. According to the Royal Collection Trust, 40 monarchs have called the palatial space home since it was built by William the Conqueror in the 11th century.
Queen Elizabeth used Windsor Castle regularly throughout her reign, though it is thought that her son King Charles III won’t spend as much time there following his accession as sovereign.
For now, the Wales family is enjoying Windsor’s vast parkland and countryside where George, Charlotte and Louis can play freely.
What does Windsor Castle look like inside?
Inside, the rooms of Windsor Castle are decorated with ornate walls, antique furniture and historic artworks.
Several pieces from the Royal Collection Trust are on display, and there are thought to be more than 400 clocks scattered throughout the castle.
While serving as the late Queen’s home, Windsor Castle is a working palace that hosts several official functions and banquets every year.

Earlier this year, the late Queen was pictured in the castle’s Oak Room as she viewed memorabilia marking her Platinum Jubilee. The former monarch also welcomed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to the Oak Room this year and pictures showed a gray fireplace covered in antiques and a comfy seating area.
Elizabeth II was also pictured with US President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden in the Grand Corridor of Windsor Castle in June 2021.
Also located within the Windsor Castle grounds is St George’s Chapel, a popular royal wedding venue. In recent years, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, and Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, have all tied the knot at the historic chapel.
Several members of the Royal Family have been buried at the King George VI Memorial Chapel in Windsor Castle, including just recently Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, King George VI and his wife, Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother.
