Prince William and Kate Middleton shared a celebratory kiss after a charity polo match held in Windsor on Wednesday.
The Duchess of Cambridge gave her husband a big kiss on both cheeks after his team won the polo fundraising tournament, raising over $1 million dollars that will be donated to the various charities the couple supports. William and Kate also shared a hug and were later spotted with their arms wrapped around one another as they left the playing field. The pair brought their dog Orla with them as well to the match which took place nearby Queen Elizabeth‘s home of Windsor Castle.
This public appearance comes shortly after William and Kate’s big move to Berkshire, 30 miles west of their former London home at Kensington Palace. The reason behind the move was in part to be closer to the queen, but also inspired by the new demands of their three children’s schooling. The eldest kids, George and Charlotte, will both be leaving their London prep school, Thomas’s Battersea, at the end of the current term and are set to enroll in a school in the Windsor area. Their new Berkshire home also has the added benefit of being close to Bucklebury where Kate grew up and where her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, still reside.
The Sunday Times has also reported that the plan might be for the Duke and Duchess to eventually move into “the big house,” better known as Windsor Castle as it’s thought that Prince Charles will not spend as much time there as the queen currently does. A friend of the couple told the outlet, “The reality is they are quite confined in what they can do in London. The kids can’t go into the park and kick a football with friends. Their plan is to be there for the next 10 to 15 years and then move to Anmer, which is so special to them.” Anmer is Anmer Halle, the royals’ country home in Norfolk, which the source referred to as “their happy place.”
