Celebrity News: Kate and William at Princess Diana’s Former Apartment – While Will and Kate own Apartment 1A (circled on right), Charles and Diana previously lived in Apartment 8, which received a two-year renovation.
Charles and Diana moved into the space after their wedding in 1981. Residents would spot the new princess shopping at nearby Kensington High Street and visiting the local movie theater.The couple raised their two children from their base in London. Both William and Harry attended nearby preschools and elementary schools.
After divorce, Diana lived at Kensington until her death in 1997. When the news broke, 136,000 mourners came to the palace to sign condolence books, and over four million bouquets were left at its iconic gold gates. In 2011, the Queen gave Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge an apartment in Kensington Palace as a wedding present. While the couple has lived at rural Anmer Hall, they’ve increasingly spent more time in London on official duties.
The working apartments are situated on the opposite side of the palace from apartment 1A, which was formerly Princess Margaret’s living quarters. The location is ideally suited for Kate and Will, who will make the London apartment their primary residence in 2017, when Prince George attends Thomas’s Battersea School in September. And of course for Harry, who conveniently lives just steps away.
