The royal couple, Kate Middleton and Prince William, are relocating. According to a new report, they are reportedly moving into one of the properties on the Queen's Windsor estate this summer.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have raised eyebrows after it was announced that they would be relocating to Windsor. According to the Express, royal insiders are surprised because the future king and queen consort had recently spent millions remodeling their Kensington Palace property.

"I was told personally and categorically by a senior aide to the Duke when millions of public money was spent on KP and Apt 1A for the Cambridges’ that it/KP would be their base when William became heir to the throne," royal expert Robert Jobson tweeted. "Is that now changing with the move to Berkshire?"

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent £4.5 million of taxpayer money on the two-year restoration of Apartment 1a, according to the site. The removal of asbestos from the property and extensive roof repairs were among the tasks completed.

A second family kitchen was also paid for privately by Prince William and Middleton to supplement the "working kitchen" used for official engagements.

While royal experts questioned Prince William and Kate Middleton's decision, Cambridge supporters were eager to defend the couple.

"So it was okay for Harry to have his office/base at BP and a home at Windsor but not William to have his office/base at Kensington and home at Windsor? And yet, as an heir, William is far more important!" one fan commented.

"Fact Check. The figure didn’t run to millions. A residence that hadn’t been occupied for 20 or renovated for 40 yrs before that, needed a new roof, plumbing & electrics. Way less than £2.4 m shelled out for Frogmore apparently. And they actually lived in it," another added.

Another netizen wrote : "It will still be their London base. Why such a negative spin against them. I'm disappointed at the tone."

Meanwhile, another internet user speculated that the Cambridge family's relocation was likely due to the Queen's mobility issues.

"It's quite possible no one foresaw Her Majesty's mobility issues," Patricia Watts said. "Maybe The Queen asked William to consider the one knows all the factors."
