Prince William and Duchess Catherine
Prince William and Duchess Catherine are house-hunting.
The royal couple - who currently divide their home between their rented cottage in Wales and an apartment in Kensington - are preparing to splash out some of William's Â£10 million inheritance on a new home.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: 'They have started looking for a family home, ideally within striking distance of London, Highgrove and Catherine's parents in Berkshire.'
Although William is currently working as a search and rescue pilot with the RAF, it is thought he will soon undertake full time royal duties as a result of the recent health scares suffered by his grandfather Prince Philip.
Because of this, William wants a home in the country that he and Catherine - previously known as Kate Middleton - can escape to.
The source added: 'William knows he will have to become a full-time royal sooner rather than later.
'It's not like they are scouring websites and calling agents all the time but they are keeping an eye out for properties. They don't just need the perfect house. There are obvious privacy and security issues, too.'
