Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have new home in London

William and Kate have a new home in London as the newlywed couple moves into an apartment in Kensington Palace, according to a new report from People Magazine.

The apartment will be the couple's home in the capital, while they continue to have a home in North Wales, near the airbase where William is currently working.

By several accounts, the Kensington apartment will be a temporary home for the couple, as the space is limited – there are only two bedrooms.

In the long run, it has not yet been decided where the couple will live as they start a family.

"A number of options for longer term solutions are still being considered. The couple's main home will continue to be their house on Anglesey, and their [administrative] Household Office will continue to be based at St. James's Palace. …[The Kensington apartment] hasn't had any refurbishment for around 15 years, and it has been vacant for a little while," a spokesperson told the news source.

According to the Daily Mail, the couple currently reside in a "rented farmhouse on the island of Anglesey," and will only stay at Kensington Palace when they visit London.

It is mostly likely that they will move into their London home sometime in June or July, according to the news source.

Prince William and Kate Middleton were married in April of this year in front of audiences who watched the wedding from around the world. The bride became the Duchess of Cambridge upon her wedding, and had been dating Prince William on and off since their college days. Catherine's sister, Pippa, was maid of honor at her wedding and has since become famous in the media.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to visit the U.S. this summer, according to People.
