Prince William and Kate are reportedly planning to move to Windsor later this summer to be closer to the Queen.
After his grandmother suffered a series of health problems, the Duke of Cambridge now wants to move closer to her. The sun reported.
This year, the Queen has been suffering from a spate of health issues since last year, which has seen the 95-year-old miss a number of engagements.
The Cambridges, who currently split their time between Kensington Palace, London and Anmer Hall, Norfolk, are said to have toured a number of royal mansions closer to the Queen in Windsor.
That included scouting out Prince Andrew’s royal box, but the disgraced prince reportedly has no intention of bouncing.

The couple have barred apartments at Windsor Castle and Fort Belvedere, which was once home to King Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson and sits on the edge of Windsor Great Park, he reports The sun.
Insiders claim the Cambridges have also considered Frogmore House, where they often take their three children, George, eight, Charlotte, six, and Louis, three, to play at weekends.
There have been rumors that the couple could move into Adelaide Cottage, which sits in the shadow of Windsor Castle, but the property is currently occupied.
As well as finding a new home, William and Kate are reportedly looking for schools in Windsor, Buckinghamshire and Surrey.
It comes as Prince William is reportedly planning to reinvent the role of the Prince of Wales – and his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, is set to play a key role in the future.
William, 39, will inherit his father’s title of Prince of Wales when Charles becomes king and is already looking forward to seeing how he will carry out his new duties.
Palace assistants are said to be describing the strategy as “the Cambridge way”, with Kate, 40, expected to undertake more solo overseas tours and William to focus on a handful of charities.

William is said to be considering reducing the number of charities the Prince of Wales usually keeps, with a focus on mental health, the environment and children’s early years.
The new strategy will reportedly capitalize on the Duchess of Cambridge’s popularity, with Kate increasingly being sent on solo trips abroad.
William also intends to cut half of the estimated 140 staff working for the Prince of Wales if he takes on the role.
The Cambridge plan marks a change in Charles’s strategy as Prince of Wales – but the new plans are not meant to be a snub to the future king.
