The Dukes of Cambridge, William and Katherine, begin a new stage in their family life by moving soon to a house on the grounds of Windsor Castle, on the outskirts of London, while their three children will start classes at a new school, Kensington Palace reported Monday.

The Duke and Duchess will live in Adelaide Cottage, a modest 19th-century house with four bedrooms, so there will be no room for additional staff to live with them.

The couple’s children, princes George, Charlotte and Louis, will start classes in September at the private school Lambrook School, near the town of Ascot, near Windsor, according to Kensington Palace, official residence of the dukes.

The family will leave Kensington Palace to lead a more rural life, while George and Charlotte will leave Thomas’s Battersea College in London.

The dukes have chosen to reside in Adelaide Cottage -a ten-minute walk from Windsor Castle- after Queen Elizabeth II, 96, granted permission for its use, since it is a home in the hands of the Crown.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge today announced that Princes George, Charlotte and Louis will attend Lambrook School in Berkshire from September 2022,” Kensington said in a statement released Monday.

“Their Royal Highnesses are very grateful to Thomas’s Battersea, where George and Charlotte have had a happy start to their education since 2017 and 2019 respectively, and are happy to have found a school for three children who share Thomas’s values”add note.

However, the dukes will keep the apartment where they have lived in Kensington Palace as their office and where their staff will continue to work, as well as the Amber Hall country house that they have in the county of Norfolk, in the east of England, and which was a gift from Queen Elizabeth II after their wedding in 2011.

For the first time, the nanny of the princes, the Spanish María Teresa Turrión Borralo, will not live with the family.

For his part, the director of Thomas’s Battersea, Ben Thomas, expressed the best wishes of “happiness and success” for the princes.

It is estimated that the dukes will pay around 53,000 pounds ($61,325) a year in tuition for their children.

The school is about a 20-minute drive from Adelaide Cottage, a house that has history as the place where Captain Peter Townsend lived, whose relationship with Elizabeth II’s sister, Princess Margaret, caused a scandal in the 1950s. past.
