Kate Middleton and her siblings Pippa and James are understood to be moving to Berkshire, where they will live within walking distance of their parents Carole, 67, and Mike, 73.
Middleton’s parents live in a seven-bedroom Bucklebury mansion, which they bought in 2012 for £4.7 million. The house, which sits on 18 acres of land, is named after the Berkshire village in which it is located.
The Cambridges are reportedly looking at several properties at the Queen’s 655-acre Windsor estate with a view to moving this summer. The move would put them 45 minutes away by car from Carol and Mike.
Prince William, 40, and Kate, 40, will move their family from Kensington, west London, to a four-bedroom home on the Windsor estate this summer.
Pippa, 38, and her investment banker husband James Matthews, 46, have splashed out £15m on a beautiful stately home in the county.

And Middleton’s youngest sibling, brother James, 35, and his new wife Alizie Thevenet, 32, moved to the tiny farm in the heart of the Berkshire countryside last year.
Kate and William is reportedly considering a four-bedroom Adelaide cottage on the Windsor estate.
Their three children, George, eight, Charlotte, seven, and Louis, four, will be withdrawn from their current prep school in Battersea and are all expected to start schools in the local area when the new term starts in September.
The Grade II listed retreat is within walking distance of St George’s Chapel and Windsor Castle and sits proudly on a 655 acre royal estate in Berkshire.
The cottage was extensively renovated in 2015 but still boasts original features, including a Greco-Egyptian marble fireplace and a master bedroom with a vaulted ceiling featuring gilded dolphins and rope decorations reused from the Royal George yacht.
It also has seven sealed entrances and exits to Windsor Castle so the family can come and go in relative privacy.
Carol, 67, and Mike, 73, bought the seven-bedroom property, which has a tennis court, swimming pool and library, for £4.7m nine years ago.
The move to Windsor means the Cambridges will be a 45-minute drive from the Duchess’s parents’ home.
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Pippa, who is currently expecting her third child with her Eton-educated husband, will soon be living much closer to her family after buying their new Georgian mansion, which is around 20 minutes’ drive from her family home.
The home, which they will share with their two children, three-year-old Arthur and one-year-old Grace, has about 30 rooms.
It is also said to boast plenty of open space, spread over 150 acres of land that leads to the river.
The mansion was the subject of a painstaking multi-million pound restoration by its previous owner.
It was not known to be on the market and the sale is said to have been done privately.

The 35-year-old entrepreneur’s home is a stunning four-bedroom Grade II listed farmhouse in Bucklebury.
Photos of the home, which James shared on Instagram, showed low ceilings, dark rustic beams and leaded windows.
James also shared pictures and videos from his parents’ home, giving his Instagram followers a glimpse inside the stunning estate that Kate Middleton’s parents have called home since 2012.
The couple are understood to have bought the seven-bedroom property, which has a tennis court, swimming pool and library, for £4.7million nine years ago.
The Georgian pile, which is the former family seat of a family whose ancestors received the land from Henry VIII, offers the Middletons unsurpassed solitude and privacy.
It is set in 18 acres of landscaped grounds overlooking a picturesque valley.
The Middleton siblings will have a lot more freedom to roam the Berkshire countryside with their growing families and the welcome help of parents Carol and Mike.
