We all saw this coming. Despite the £4.5 million renovations done on Kensington Palace, Prince William and Kate Middleton are hightailing it out of London for greener pastures.
Since leaving the RAF at Anglesey, where he was based for more than three years, William, 32, has been eager to get back to flying and is set to complete what officials call “a mandatory period of training this autumn and winter.”
He will start work at the area bases at Cambridge and Norwich airports in spring 2015, flying night and day shifts, which will allow for him and wife Kate, also 32, to live primarily at Anmer Hall, their 10-bedroom mansion near Sandringham. The home is undergoing renovations and it is known that the couple want to use it as their base. Although Kensington Palace is the main official residence, they will settle in their country home. “They want to live up there as much as possible,” a source close to them tells PEOPLE.
“They are going to be Norfolk-based and coming to London every so often, rather than London-based and going off for a weekend in Norfolk,” the source says. (People)
Celebitchy — one of my favorite sites for celebrity/royal news — had a lot of good points to make. Like how their essentially creating a job for William out of thin-air… pun intended. Oh, and a commenter smartly pointed out that while his salary will be contributed to charity, it’s still a salary that could be given to other, non-royals, in need of a job pilots.
I’m slowly becoming more and more over these two. What about you?
