Moving from one luxury residence to another can be stressful for anyone, and Kate Middleton is reportedly having difficulty adjusting to her new home!
According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, the new Princess of Wales, 40, has had a “very difficult time” since moving from Kensington Palace in London to Adelaide Cottage in Windsor, where she and her husband, the new Prince of Wales, made earlier this year.
The Prince and Princess of Wales relocated to be closer to the late Queen Elizabeth II, but the late monarch tragically died just days later in Balmoral at the age of 96.
Nicholl claims the move did not take place. It was not what either of them had hoped for, and it was stressful not only for Kate but for the entire family.
“They said so themselves … that this wasn’t the adjustment period they were hoping for,” Nicholl said on TalkTV Royal tea show acc The mirror. “Obviously they took that big step right after the summer holidays to move to Windsor.
A significant and quite brave move, leaving Kensington Palace, getting the kids enrolled in new schools, and making a new life for themselves in Windsor, I really think they could be under the radar and have this normal family life in which they are quite successful at.”
“Very, very difficult times”
“Of course, no one could have predicted that the Queen would have died at the outset,” Nicholl continued. “Very, very difficult times. I think behind the scenes there is quite a bit of stress and anxiety for the whole family.”
On September 8, the day the Queen died, Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4, started their new school in Lambrook.
They were reportedly enjoying the semester break as a family before the children returned to school on Monday, October 31.
