I personally think it is a great idea for them to have a house to themselves and not share with the in-law's LOL
I do think KP is a distinct possibility once they decide to have a more permanent base in London. I suspect this may wait until Wills leaves the SAR in a few years time.

I didn't know quite how to feel when I first saw P Diana's ring on Kate's hand but as soon as the discussion of the couple's London home began, I hoped they would choose KP and specifically P Diana's apartments. If you read Paul Burrell's books (and others) Diana's KP residence had beautiful views, privacy and security (although she envied P Margaret's 'secret' entrance) and it's sad it's been stripped bare. I guess I just think it would be a lovely homage to P Diana if they could turn it into the happy family home she had always wanted it to be.

Excuse my question but I am always a bit confused with St. James Palace and Clarence House

As far as I get it Clarence house is the home of PoW and Camilla - St. James Palas was their home before - is the office of the PoW still in St. James Palace as it always is said - St. James Palace confirms, announces aso

Thanks for clarifying for me...

Let's hope not. Let's leave them alone.

I think a lot of it has to do with security as well as privacy.

We know they are living in Anglessey, which is a small area.

In all likelihood the house doesn't have a high fence around it and thus privacy is an issue but security would be the main one - if people don't know where they are living it is easier to keep it secure.

We know where other royals are living - behind high fences and often unable to see the actual house from the road all that easily because of either the fence or the foliage or both.

In massive palaces where only royalty have ever lived. Anglesey is an island where 'commoners' or ordinary people live. For them William and Catherine are the odd ones out in their surroundings. If it was known where they are living in this rural area, the press would be on it 24/7 and the people who live near or around W&C there lives would be turned upside down by this press instrusion. Keeping it a secret is best for security and for the lives of the other people living in Anglesey.

I don't know if this is the appropriate place to put it but according to this week's People double issue (I'll come back and post a link later) they said Kensington Palace is going under massive renovations and they believe that sooner or later the Duke and Duchess will make that their permanent residence. According to the article, it being his childhood home with Diana and having a lot of space (obviously) he has good memories of the palace. And it's supposed to be perfect for a "growing family" (quoting the article.)

Does anyone one see this as being the natural porgression for the Duke and Duchess after a time?

I read they will be living in Anglesey for the next two years. The location of their home has remained private for security reasons. It seems a nice remote place perfect for a newly married couple before commencing their royal duties as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

I do think they will move into KP in about 2 years assuming that the Queen is still with us (and I am sure that she will be).

If she has gone then I think they will make CH their London base and leave KP to Harry.

We've seen photos of the rental so I don't think it's all that private. Still I hope for their sakes that they are left to be and their privacy respected.

Yea I thought a pre-wedding issue of People had pictures of the home they'd been renting in Wales, and assuming they don't plan on moving (which I wouldn't be surprised if they had) there are pictures of their current residence out there...unless People lied and that was just a picture of a random Welsh home hahahaha

It would be cool to see what a similar house looks like.. just the layout and stuff... maybe a pic of someone else's house that has a similar build.
