It's also good that Harry will get Nottingham Cottage, rather than living with his father and stepmother in Clarence House. It's nice for him to have a place of his own.
I thought the same thing; how could PM's apartment be used for such purposes? It's understandable that Historic Royal Palaces needs premises to operate out of, but surely other accommodations could have been used instead. It will take quite a sum of money to restore the apartment back to its original state, but it is part of the historic KP and it's good that it will be used again as a dwelling.

And I'm sure Harry will make the most of solo living in Nott Cottage!

And yet another article on the choice of KP as the official London residence.

Prince William and Kate Middleton to move into permanent home at Kensington Palace - mirror.co.uk

Baroness, and 4Pam, when hearing the word 'apartment' I have the same understanding as you; a small space, with three bedrooms and (possibly) two bathrooms. Of course, when reading about royals, one must take things up a notch. A four-storey apartment might as well be called 'a house', but since they don't take up the whole building, it makes sense to call it what they did. This will be exciting to follow, especially when they have children.

The KP move is being discussed in two threads, there is a W&C home thread just to let people know.

Well. I guess they are thinking of the future. It is a perfect spot for children, which I am now wondering about, plenty of room to run around and play hide and seek. Its good that they will have their own place. Its time for them to start their lives in their own place with their own personal touch. I am happy for them. Maybe kiddies soon!

The Duke and Duchess make it to the 'Influential Londoners' List. They're number fifteen. Not bad.

Wills and Kate cement their power couple status on our influential Londoners list | News

They probably figure that by 2013 they will have a child or be having a child so it's good for future long-term usage. Prince Harry will probably enjoy that space and single living.....if he is still single LOL

Hmm, what will it take to get to No. 1, I wonder...maybe having a female heir to the throne?

I don't see how having a daughter makes them any more influential.

I think I must be oblivious to remarks like this as I've missed two today.

William went on, "it is a place of sanctuary....a place of quiet pride in the selflessness and sacrifice of those who have gone before."

Thanks for the preview photos. This gown looks like it has possibilities, so I can't wait to see more pictures. And I'm loving what I can see of that diamond drop earring, and in the full-view photo that could be the diamond bracelet Kate wore at the charity dinner at CH. Hopefully we'll see closeups of that as well to confirm.

That dress

For those who watch Project Runway in the US, that dress looks remarkably like one of the losing entries several weeks ago- was thought to look too much like the Statue of Liberty! I'm sure Kate's gown is lovely though-looking forward to a better picture.
