A family in mourning mode . Just teaching the kids George (9), Charlotte (7) and Louis (4) that it's theirs great-grandmother no longer exists and grandpa is now King of England should present Kate and William with a real challenge. And the roles are also changing for the two themselves: the royal couple has become the Prince and Princess of Wales after the death of the Queen.
In fact, the life of the heir to the throne and his family were already in upheaval. In the summer the family was out Kensington Palace in London to move to the country. The destination: Windsor , which is around 40 kilometers west of London. William and Kate now live there with their three kids in 'Adelaide Cottage'. Will it stay that way? Recently, reports have increased that raised the question whether the family could stay there or not, after all, the new king would move into Adelaide Cottage . However, this is at best a dream of the future and has not been confirmed by any party so far.
Part of the move to Windsor, however, was the children's change of school - both George and Charlotte left theirs old school and attend the 'Lambrook School' in the new school year in the Berkshire region. Little Louis hasn't gone to school yet, but now he has to get used to a different environment and other friends.
All of this is now mixed with immeasurable grief for the deceased great-grandmother and the huge public interest that goes with it and from which even the little ones are not completely spared. (rla)
