Prince William (39) and Duchess Kate (40) are looking for a new roof over their heads. The family should go to Windsor and thus closer to Queen Elizabeth II (94).
The monarch has moved her permanent retirement home to Windsor Castle. As the British newspaper “The Sun” reports, the heir to the throne couple has therefore considered Adelaide Cottage. It is in the castle grounds, just ten minutes away. William and Kate’s children, Prince George (8), Princess Charlotte (7) and Prince Louis (4), could easily visit their great-grandson at any time.
Prince Andrew wants the cottage for his daughter Beatrice
The house, built in 1831, could cause resentment among the Windsors. Prince Andrew (62) also had the cottage in mind for his daughter Princess Eugenie (32). This is reported by the newspaper “Daily Mail” with reference to palace insiders.
Eugenie lives with her husband Jack Brooksbank (38) and son August (1) in Frogmore Cottage, the former home of Duchess Meghan (40) and Prince Harry (37). The Duke of York would like to have Eugenie, his son-in-law and grandson closer to him. His Royal Lodge is within walking distance of Adelaide Cottage.

Both are said by the British media to find Andrew’s behavior disturbing and have repeatedly advised him to hold back.
