Prince William and Kate Middleton slammed for having’ three furnished homes’

Prince William and Kate Middleton were criticised by taxpayers for having "three furnished homes" as a royal insider revealed their permanent move to Windsor.

It has been reported that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will move into Adelaide Cottage, at Windsor Castle, this summer after William celebrates his 40th birthday.

According to Royally Obsessed podcasters Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito, taxpayers are "miffed" when they learned the Cambridges have already owned two furnished homes — Kensington Palace in London and Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

Rachel said: "At Kensington Palace, being a city location, they are limited in terms of the ground.

"That means that George, Charlotte and Louis will have easy access to their great-grandmother and I feel like any access to the outdoors will be so great for kids, it will be in abundance at Windsor."

Co-host, Roberta, chimed in and added: "But to have three furnished homes…I think the taxpayers are a little miffed about this."

But Rachel sees it differently as she considers that Prince William will be the future king.

"Think about all the properties the Queen has," she added.

They also commented that the move "is expected to significantly change the dynamic at Windsor" where, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York has the most contact with the Queen.

Meanwhile, royal writer Daniela Elser claimed the royal couple's relocation plan "essentially means they have wasted millions and millions of Sovereign Grant money" of modernising Kensington Palace.

The reported £4million spent on the Cambridge's home of Apartment 1A was funded by 25% of revenue from the Crown estates that the royal family keeps largely for maintaining property.

She added that the refurbishment was "done with the idea that they would stay rooted at the palace for many more years to come".
