Even though they are moving into Kensington Palace, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — Prince William and Kate Middleton — have reportedly decided to postpone bringing in any extra household help! We love how down-to-earth they are!
Kate Middleton and Prince William never cease to amaze us with how low-key they stay — especially for royalty! Not only are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge traveling with an incredibly small entourage during their upcoming tour, but a new report says the couple has decided to refrain from hiring servants for their new home as well.
“New staff for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been put on hold. The move to Kensington Palace will go ahead, but just without the extra household staff. For now,” a source told US Weekly.
Another insider said Kate, 29, “doesn’t want a housekeeper/dresser at Kensington Palace because she doesn’t need one right now.”
Even though William, 28, and his new wife advertised for staff positions at Kensington Palace, their private secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton said it was a premature move.
“We’re going to take it a little slower and review at the end of the year,” he said, explaining, “I’ve never worked for a woman before, as you’d expect in my life of work.”
William and Kate, especially, have consistently maintained a more normal lifestyle compared to their royal status. During their trip to California July 8, the couple is traveling with a small entourage of seven, including an administrative assistant and the Duchess’s hairdresser, James Pryce.
We love how William and Kate want to keep their relationship private by keeping their home to themselves for the time being. Clearly, their love is what they hold most important.
