Prince William and Kate Middleton are about to make a significant change.

The royal couple intends to transfer from Kensington Palace in London to a new home in Berkshire,

the county that houses the Queen's official residence, Windsor Castle.

The change reflects the changing requirements of the couple's three children

Prince George, who will be nine in July, Princess Charlotte,7 and Prince Louis, 4.

However, as per US Weekly, “Kate and William are moving to Windsor to be closer to [Queen Elizabeth II] and Carole [Middleton],

who is always on hand to look after the kids when the Cambridges need to travel back and forth from London.

After moving, PEOPLE confirmed that George and Charlotte will leave their London prep school,

Thomas's Battersea, at the end of the current term and enroll in a school in the Windsor region.
