The Cambridges have officially kicked off a new chapter. Kate Middleton and Prince William have relocated from London’s Kensington Palace to Windsor, where they now reside in Adelaide Cottage with their three young children.
The move comes in time for the beginning of a new school year in the UK, and on Wednesday, the royals stepped out at Lambrook School—a private education preparatory school in Bracknell which will be attended by Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four.
When they arrived, they were greeted by the school’s headmaster, Jonathan Perry.
The Cambridge’s relocation hasn’t come without some controversy, with some publications reporting that parents of students at Lambrook are worried about how the presence of royals will effect their day to day.
“A lot of parents are p—ed off,” one mother told Sunday Mirror.
“They’re worried the feel and atmosphere of the school will change with all the security. Many of us worry things like the carol service will now become more formal and won’t be the sweet, laid-back affair they usually are.”
Of course, it’s not yet known how involved the Cambridges will actually be with the school. Prior to the move, George and Charlotte attended Thomas’ Battersea in London—aside from when their two eldest attended their first day of school, Kate and William kept their presence well away from the media.
For the new school introductions on Wednesday, Kate wore an AUD $417 brown polka-dot dress by British brand Rixo. The sold-out style featured three quarter length puff sleeves with a fitted waist and reached midi length.
The royal children wore the Lambrook school uniform, which consists a checkered shirt and tailored shorts for boys, and a blue dress for girls.
The Cambridges’ new home, Adelaide Cottage is located in the grounds of Windsor Castle, where the Queen currently resides. Built in 1831, the cottage is in close vicinity to St George’s Chapel, where numerous royal services have been held including the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, as well as Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.
The Cambridges still have a base at Kensington Palace in London, and they also own a country home in Sandringham, Anmer Hall, which they frequently visit for Christmas and summer holidays.
