By now, Prince William and Kate are well used to moving house and settling into a new area, as they have lived in several different houses and towns over the course of their almost 20-year relationship. Let's take a look back at all the places they have previously called home…

WATCH: Look inside royal homes

Adelaide Cottage, Windsor

Adelaide Cottage is Prince William and Kate's new family home along with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The four-bedroom Grade II-listed cottage dates back to 1831 and was renovated in 2015, but has some unique features including a "coved ceiling with gilded dolphins and rope ornament reused from the royal yacht, Royal George," in the master bedroom.

Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace, London

Apartment 1A Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace has been the Duke and Duchess' main residence for the past five years, and while it has an enviable location and plenty of space for their family, Prince William and Kate reportedly want the opportunity to give their children "as normal a life as possible".

They will keep Apartment 1A, which features five reception rooms, three main bedrooms, dressing rooms, a night and day nursery, and staff quarters, as a London base.

Anmer Hall, Sandringham

Anmer Hall

Anmer Hall was a gift to Prince William and Kate from the Queen, and they lived there between 2015 and 2017, when they decided to move back to London full-time. The 18th-century home has ten bedrooms, a swimming pool and tennis court, and is still frequently visited by the Cambridges during weekends and holidays.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge lived in Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace for a few months with their son Prince George in 2013, while they waited for renovations to be completed at Apartment 1A.

One of the smaller properties on the Kensington Palace estate, it has two bedrooms and reception rooms, and has since been home to other royal couples including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

An Anglesey farmhouse

Anglesey Cottage

Prince William and Kate reportedly spent £750 a month renting a four-bedroom farmhouse in Anglesey in 2011. Located on Bodorgan Home Farm, it offered them access to a private beach and had beautiful views of Newborough Forest.
