  • William and Kate are moving out of London to settle their kids into school just outside of Windsor. 
  • Their permanent residence and office will remain at Kensington Palace as they live at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor. 
  • The children will attend Lambrook School in Berkshire starting in September. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are moving out of London for now as their kids settle into a new private school just outside of Windsor. 

William and Kate will live at Adelaide Cottage in Windsor Home Park as the kids get ready to start school in September, Kensington Palace confirmed to Insider.

According to the Associated Press, Adelaide Cottage is just a ten-minute walk from Windsor Castle, moving the family much closer to Queen Elizabeth. 

Kensington Palace will remain the royal family's official residence and will still be the site of the Duke and Duchess's offices. 

According to a statement from Kensington Palace, their three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis — will attend Lambrook School in Berkshire starting next month. 

"We are delighted that Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis will be joining us this coming September and very much look forward to welcoming the family, as well as all of our new pupils, to our school community," Jonathan Perry, Headmaster at Lambrook School, said.

The Duke and Duchess thanked Thomas's Battersea in the statement, "where George and Charlotte have had a happy start to their education since 2017 and 2019 respectively." 

They added they are"pleased" to have found a school for all three kids that has "similar ethos to Thomas's."

"We would like to thank George, Charlotte, and all of our leaving pupils for upholding the school's values and for their many contributions to school life throughout their time at Thomas's. We wish them every happiness and success at their next schools and beyond," Ben Thomas, Principal of Thomas's London Day Schools, said. 

A royal source told CNN that the move away from the city will ensure William and Kate can be "active parents in a busy school." 

The source added: "They want to be as normal a family as possible."
