Prince William and Kate have nabbed a new London apartment at Kensington Palace (where Princess Diana lived until her death). The apartment in temporary because it is only a two bedroom and are possibly  looking for bigger spaces.

According to People,

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been using William’s bachelor apartment at Clarence House, where he resides with Prince Harry, their father, Prince Charles, and their stepmother, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

The new home – suitable for entertaining friends – is likely to be temporary, however, given the confinement of space.

A spokesman for the couple confirms, “A number of options for longer term solutions are still being considered. The couple’s main home will continue to be their house on Anglesey, and their [administrative] Household Office will continue to be based at St. James’s Palace.”

It is likely that they will move in late June, early July – around the time of the couple’s tour of Canada and California. Before that, though, the quarters will require some work..

“It hasn’t had any refurbishment for around 15 years, and it has been vacant for a little while,” the royal source says.

William spent much of his childhood at the combined apartments eight and nine – home to his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. (Those rooms are currently being used as offices.)
