Prince William & Kate Middleton Prep For Palace Life! Photos Inside Their New Home — And It's Baby-Ready!!

Posted Wed, June 15, 2011 12:33pm EDT

Prince William and Kate Middleton are gearing up for their move from a quaint cottage in Wales to London’s sprawling Kensington Palace, and palace sources say William is eager to populate its long corridors with babies!

William loved growing up there, in apartments 8 and 9,” a source tells Life & Style magazine. “Diana encouraged the boys to run around and play in the garden. It’s the perfect place to raise children.”

According to the magazine, “When it came time to choose a London home where he and his new wife could raise their own family, William knew he wanted to live in the place where he had enjoyed so many special moments—and hear the sound of children’s laughter echoing through the hallways once again.”

And babies are indeed on the royal couple’s mind: “Obviously we want a family, so we’ll have to start thinking about that,” William has said. And Kate‘s just as eager: “I hope we will be able to have a happy family.”

Adds royal biographer Andrew Morton: “My research suggests Catherine should be pregnant within a few months of marriage,” he tells Life & Style. “Diana and Princess Elizabeth were pregnant within three months of marriage.”

As for their Kensington Palace apartment—which William and Kate chose after looking at other units in the 17th-century palace near London’s trendy Notting Hill neighborhood—it’s currently being refurbished and decorated with furnishings Kate picked out.

And there’s no shortage of room at the palace: It sits on 750 acres, and its extensive gardens include paved walkways and ornamental pools. Plus, it’s only going to get better: The palace is undergoing a $12 million renovation to prep for the Queen’s diamond jubilee next year.

“They are thrilled about moving,” a source tells Life & Style of William and Kate’s impending new life. “It will bring back such warm memories for William.”

Diana most certainly had sex with Charles before the wedding. You live in la la land.
