Over the past couple of years, there has been speculation surrounding Buckingham Palace and whether it will be the official residence for the future King and Queen Consort or a “working hub” for the monarchy, as more areas are opened up to the public as a visitor attraction. But it has been suggested recently that Prince Charles is “firmly of the view that it’s the visible symbol of the monarchy in the nation’s capital and therefore must be his home”. So where will Prince William and Kate Middleton live? It has been suggested the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and their three children will move to Windsor Castle.
Kate stands apart from Charles & Camilla – expert explains why
William and Kate currently reside at Kensington Palace – they have lived in Apartment 1A since 2017.
The couple also has Anmer Hall on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, given to them by the Queen.
Sources said they believe the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will go on to inherit Windsor Castle when Prince Charles takes the throne.
Should this happen, it is thought Amner Hall will revert to the Queen or her heir who would rent it out.

While Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis would get much more green space to enjoy, they would also be closer to Kate’s parents.
Windsor Castle has been inhabited for almost 1,000 years and has been decorated to suit certain monarchs and their requirements.
While the royal couple would probably redecorate certain rooms, here’s how it currently looks inside.
The colours and fabrics chosen are very luxurious and many rooms are regal with bright colours, original fireplaces and historic artwork.
The dining room’s most impressive feature is its intricately carved ceiling which was completely restored after a fire ripped through part of the building in 1992.
Expert on how Kate displays ‘more power’ in public than Prince William
The Queen’s Drawing Room is part of the Semi-State Rooms; private apartments created for George IV and feature interiors decorated by Morel & Seddon, with a selection of furnishings and fittings taken from Carlton House, George IV’s former London residence.
The room is richly decorated and is used by the Queen for official entertaining.
The Green Drawing Room, on the other hand, boasts George IV “love of fine objects and opulent design”.
According to the Royal Collection Trust, this particular room was “one of the most lavish and costly interior decoration schemes ever carried out in England”.
It was also where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had their official family wedding photos taken.

The Crimson Drawing Room, on the other hand, has a black marble chimneypiece, and on the walls, there are State Portraits of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth which were painted at Windsor during the Second World War.
In the middle of the room hangs an impressive chandelier and there are thick red curtains, red furniture and walls and lots of gold.
The White Drawing Room is where Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank had their official wedding photos taken following their ceremony in St. George’s Chapel.
The Grand Reception Room was designed as the principal ballroom of the castle, and displays “George IV’s love of all things French”.

The walls are adorned with tapestries from Paris, and there are a number of French bronzes of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries lining the room.
The floor is wooden, and there is a long red runner carpet in the middle that leads off to a door on the left.
The walls are pale cream, but covered in gold architrave and detailing.
St. George’s Hall is where state banquets are held, and where Knights of the Order of the Garter assemble each year before processing to St George’s Chapel for their annual service.
The impressive space is lined with portraits and busts of monarchs and other royal members of the Order of the Garter.
