Farewell, Anglesey.

After making a home together in their quaint cottage in Wales since 2011, Prince William and Kate Middleton are reportedly planning to move to Kensington Palace following the birth of their first child, according to Us Weekly.

As much as they've enjoyed the privacy in the small Welsh town, the pair, who wed in April 2011,  expressed concern for their child's safety: "The security there just isn't enough," a royal staffer explained.

And with moving plans already set for Summer 2013, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have begun early renovations on a 20-room flat in the palace -- Apartment 1A -- by incorporating modern furniture. "It feels more like a house and takes up an entire block," a royal staffer said.

 

One goal remains certain for their soon-to-be abode: a family-friendly environment. The residence — once owned by William's great-aunt, Princess Margaret — accommodates space for a nursery and an adjoining room for the baby's nanny.

"William understands the importance of having a good nanny — a familiar face for children to trust," the royal source adds.

Since the announcement of her pregnancy, Middleton has been in London's King Edward VII Hospital for hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe type of morning sickness. She was discharged early Thursday morning. This is the first child for the royal couple.
