Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge Creates '£1 Million Granny Flat' For Her Parents At Kensington Palace?

Will Mr and Mrs Middleton be moving in?

By On

Kate Middleton is keen to have her parents close by as she adjusts to life as a first time mum, so much so that the Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly set aside £1 million for a "granny flat" at her Kensington Palace home, which she'll soon move into with husband Prince William and baby Prince George.

According to the Mail Online, Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton will soon have the luxury of their very own two bedroom annexe at their daughter's London address, which is currently undergoing extensive renovation.

The Duke and Duchess are due to moveinto their lavish 21 bedroom home in the coming weeks, known as Apartment 1A, the previous home of Princess Margaret.

Whilst Kate and William have declared their desire to be hands on parents, like most new mums the Duchess will no doubt be relying on some help and support from her own parents, who she is known to be very close to.

Reports suggest that Kate and Wills have set aside around £1million for a self-contained, two-bedroom annex, which will sit alongside their own home at Kensington Palace. It is thought the flat will enable George's grandparents to help out with babysitting duties when they're visiting from their Berkshire home.

The Middletons already own a £1.2m London apartment less than two miles from the palace, but the new annexe would allow them to be even closer to the new family.

It all sounds very cosy, but a Palace source has played down the reports, suggesting that a much less lavish guest room will instead be set aside for Mr and Mrs Middleton.

The Telegraph report that a spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has said there is no "Middleton family annex", planned in the design of their Kensington home.
