Prince William and Kate Middleton are reportedly relocating their family to Kensington Palace. The royal couple currently lives in Anmer Hall in Norfolk with their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

According to E! News, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are planning to move to London because their 3-year-old son is set to start school next year. A source told the news website that Prince George will most likely go to the Wetherby School, an all-boys private institution that both Prince William and Prince Harry attended as children.

Another source reportedly said that William and Middleton are also considering other school options for George.

Currently, George attends nursery school at Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk, located 10 miles from his family home on the Sandringham Estate.

The house in Norfolk was gifted to the royal couple by Queen Elizabeth II when her grandson and Middleton got married in 2011. William moved to the house in Norfolk to preserve their privacy, according to Vanity Fair.

"It's no secret that William doesn't like the media intrusion into his life, and in the country he can escape," a source told the magazine. "The Queen and the Prince of Wales have given their blessing for William to live this life, and William is very grateful. It's enabling him and Kate to raise their family in a way that's as close to ordinary as they can get."

Meanwhile, both William and Middleton are set to take up additional royal duties in 2017 after the queen's decision to step down as patron of several organizations.

This year, William and Middleton skipped the royal family's annual church service at Sandringham to visit the latter's parents in Berkshire. This is the royal couple's first Christmas away from ­Sandringham since George, 3, and Charlotte, 19 months, were born.

Middleton's parents and brother, James, as well as her sister, Pippa Middleton, along with her fiancé James Matthews, were also present for the morning services. Pippa and Matthews are reportedly getting married in the same church in Englefield, Berkshire, in May 2017.
