Prince William and Kate Middleton may call Kensington Palace home, but their residence in the Hyde Park palace is still more of a "starter palace." The royal newlyweds are now officially moved into their two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment in Kensington Palace, which will serve as their home base in the capital.
Will and Kate will still spend more time in Wales, where William works as a helicopter pilot.

(We can only hope.)
Once William and Kate begin to focus on more official duties in London — and perhaps once they start a family — they'll upgrade to a larger space in Kensington Palace.
