Harry will move into Nottingham Cottage which is also within Kensington Palace grounds and is now Wills and Kate's London residence. the big announcment that William, Kate and Harry are also moving their offices to KP makes one realize jut how extensive KP is.

Its so big that the boys are back to where they grew up but not actually living in the apartments that Charles and Diana had. and then later just Diana. I wonder if they'll take the kids and play army as they used to as wee ones.

I'll bet that when Harry gets married, he and his wife will also move into a permanent base at KP. Maybe Diana's old apartment.

Of course royal staff speak to journalists. Having a quick 'off the record' chat about what the royals are up to would be incredibly easy. That's why all the articles contain information from unnamed sources - they've promised anonymity to the individual who is 'in the know'. Journalists never reveal their sources, so there's very little chance of a staff member getting sacked for leaking info to the press, confidentiality agreement or no confidentiality agreement.

Anmer just doesn't seem to me to be a likely choice for William and Kate. It can apparently be seen from the public road, so unless they're going to construct a 10ft wall round the whole thing, I can't imagine this being a goer for them. I would've thought a Duchy of Cornwall property in the more traditional country escapes of wealthy Londoners (Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Hampshire) would be more likely.

Any ideas when KP will be finished with the renovating and the couple can move in. Surely some sort of time line may have been announced and perhaps I missed it.

RE KP - they are not due to move in until "mid-2013" according to previous reports.

That's an interesting. It might be an ideal compromise, allowing William to stay in search and rescue but be closer to London so he can do more royal work as well. Plus it would allow Kate to do more engagements without being too far away from William.

It would make the Anmer Hall choice make sense.

I just hope they announce one way or the other soon.

I thought of this earlier, and also that Harry is based at Wattisham. So I did a RAC Route Planner from Anmer to Wattisham. Good news its only 62 miles. Bad news is that the RAC say is takes just under 2 hours travelling. This is obviously based on sticking to the speed limits. I know the area quite well and those roads are hairy as they are cross country and narrow.

But it is do-able.

Also, the more I look at Anmer hall, the more I love it. What a charming property.

I didn't realize Harry was at Wattisham. Wonder how the brothers would like being at the same station? I had originally thought Anmer was possible as it is only 30 minutes from RAF Marham. But they don't have a SAR unit. I suppose William could choose a desk job. It appears Marham only has fixed wing. Regardless, it does sound like William is trying to work out a life and family plan to do more, while still staying in military service. Good for him.

As close as William and Harry are, I imagine they'd love to work near each other and spend more time together

William is seconded to the RAF SAR unit from the army. If he doesn't stay in the SAR then he goes back to his regiment which is based in London/Windsor.

I think that RAF Wattisham is key. He can either remain as SAR pilot or become a trainer (which has been mentioned previously). The house on the SAndringham estate will give them the privacy they want.

With the shift system and the fact he would be living 62 miles away, he may have to spend more time on the base (at present he is only minutes away) but it could still work.

Thank you for the explanation on his service commitment. I too think it could work for him. Do you know how long this next commitment is? I had heard 3 yrs.

I believe its 3 years as well. The SAR is scheduled to be privatised in 2016, so this would be a key date for William. 3 years based in Norfolk and then full time royal from the age of 34. Sounds good.

Where is that located? What would be the purpose of using it? Just a country retreat?
