Definitely wouldn't be a mansion. The house that People pictured was a modest two-story white house with quite a bit of yard around it if my memory serves me. Even if they were showing something just to show something I'd venture to guess Wills and Kate are living in something similar.

(Edited for all my spelling mistakes hahaha)

I read somewhere (though can't remember where, but probably in one of the articles posted on here) that William and Catherine's house was a five-room cottage (or something along those lines).

Yep, I read the same thing. Five rooms....not bedrooms, so it's pretty small.

Don't know whether photos of their current house should be published, but I have seen such photos in the past. It's very ordinary.

If it truly is only 5 rooms (I assume 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 laundry, 1 kitchen and 1 living room - I would therefore assume that the WC is in the bathroom) it is very tiny and certainly wouldn't be the home that have been shown in photos allegedly of the farmhouse - which is two storeys and is clearly larger than 5 rooms).

That size would mean no visitors could stay over for very long or they couldn't really entertain more than a couple of people at a time.

LOL I was bored last night and did a search on houses in the town and it was very cute houses and some were very modern. Lots had a ton of land well not a ton buy 6-9 acres around them. I did see on 20/20 here that the house is 1500 sq feet the realtor said and he pointed to a area and said it is somewhere over there pointing to a area LOL no help! But they said the town people are very private and they keep the secret. I am sure the neighbors don't want the worlds press out front daily so no one is telling.
I also think they said it was 3-4 bedrooms well the realtor and who knows what he knows LOL. But it is 5 hours from her parents house by car so I would bet she has a extra bedroom for family or friends to stay over because I am sure it is lonely when William is gone.

i recently listened to something on cbc about william and catherine's home in angelsey. a cbc journalist went there hoping to find the house and not one of the locals would disclose where it was. the journalist took a chance on some information that she got prior to going to the island and drove down a road but only got so far. i'm so glad that they're able to have this privacy and live a normal life for the time being.

Exactly, I'm glad about them having this amount of privacy too. Just leave them be, it's not like they will be this far off the radar forever.

I agree. The fact that they are off the radar for most of the time at the moment and we will not be constantly bombarded with news about them will make the occassional events/engagements they attend more exciting and kind of worth the wait.

So glad that no one knows for sure where they live, it adds a bit is mystery, not to mention privacy for them. I applaud that they are staying in Angelsey and living a "normal" married life, this says so much about their character. Much like the Queen & Duke of Edinburgh when they were first married. Wonderful decision on their part.

I have a 1,500 sq. ft. dwelling and I've had 30 people over at one time. Not for overnight, but 30 people nonetheless.

If it is 3-4 bedrooms, it has to be more than 1,500 sq. ft. (457 sq.m.).

1,500 sq ft is actually closer to 140 sq m. You often find 1,500 sq ft homes in the UK with 3-4 bedrooms.

Those converters are unreliable. I lived in a 2 up, 2 down terraced long, long ago and it was larger than my current home. I'm sure what they have is suitable for them, as they like it.

Prince William and Kate to move into Diana's former home - Telegraph

Kate and William are temporarily moving into a small apartment at Kensington Palace while they look for something more suitable.

according to that article it looks as though there is little to be had in the area. Somehow that strikes me as weird. You'd think there would be more room for everyone. I guess there are a lot of royals ... or the space is being used up for museums.

It strikes me as weird as well. But I guess they will have to keep searching. I wonder if this "small" apartment is small by us regular folks' standards.

Won't they get Clarence House once Charles succeeds to the throne?
I thought that is always the London residence for the heir.

Queen Mum lived in Clarence House - Charles moved in after her death.

QEII could well live another 10 or 15 Years .. till then the Cambridges will hopefully have lots of children.

From the article I assume they will be there until a baby come, then they would fell the need for another place. I wonder when will that be.....
