The new four bedroom home does not accommodate current nanny Maria Borrallo.

The move may be orchestrated to make the Cambridges appear less out of touch, but it’s unlikely to garner much public sympathy during a deepening cost-of-living crisis.

“Adelaide Cottage fits the bill because it is a four bedroom house and they no longer need them as they are unstaffed.”
