Fort Belvedere

According to Daily Mail, the couple has already set their eyes on Fort Belvedere, a Gothic mansion located at the southern end of Windsor Great Park. The same source said that it was the ‘perfect place’ to raise their three children, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.

The relocation is expected to bring the family close to both the Queen and Kate’s parents, who live in Bucklebury. It is also being seen as a power move by the couple who will be taking on even more responsibilities in the royal family.
