Prince William and Kate Middleton are reportedly planning to downsize into a four-bedroom home called Adelaide Cottage in Windsor.
Behavioral expert Darren Stanton spoke on behalf of Betfair about the “significant and strategic” move.
William and Kate want a “normal life” for the family
Darren explained: “The downsizing of Kate and William to Adelaide Cottage would be a significant step and one that is consistent with the core values and beliefs of the royal couple, as well as their characters.
While acknowledging and embracing their role as senior royals, they have also shown a willingness to break away from tradition and protocol and behave in a more relatable and personable way.
“We see them interacting much more with the public, engaging with the crowds during their royal duties and showing a hands-on approach at events, whether it’s kicking around a football or sitting on a floor with other attendees.”
“Considering this behavior, their recent decision to leave Kensington Palace should come as no surprise as Kate and William want to live as normal a life as possible for their family, despite their royal duties,” he continued.
The family’s approach to the Queen is ‘strategic’
He explained that the move is “another demonstration of behavior from Kate and William, who want to do things their own way, and another strategic move by the couple as the residence is on the Windsor estate, which means they will be much closer to the Queen”.
The decision to move closer to the Queen comes as she struggles with health and relies on her heirs to make more public appearances and take on more royal duties.
Mr Stanton added: “With William being handed more and more royal duties and set to take over the monarchy himself, it makes sense that he would be in close proximity to Her Majesty, not only to work with her, but to be around.” them to spend as much time as possible around them.

“Leaving the grandeur of Kensington Palace for a smaller and more modest home will no doubt allow William and Kate to appear more approachable again and be a couple that the everyday public can resonate with.”
