Prince William and his bride Catherine will within the coming months move into Kensington Palace, the London residence once shared by the prince and his late mother Diana, says St James's Palace.

The newly-titled Duke of Cambridge and his brother Prince Harry lived in the palace after Diana and Prince Charles divorced in 1996, but the newlywed couple will move into a different property within the grounds.

A spokesman from St James's Palace said: "We can confirm that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official London residence will temporarily become a property at Kensington Palace.

"A number of options for longer term solutions are still being considered.

"The couple's main home will continue to be their house on Anglesey, and their Household Office will continue to be based at St James's Palace," the spokesman added on Sunday.

The duke and duchess currently live on the north Wales island of Anglesey, where the prince works as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot.

William, 28, is second in line to the throne for the 16 Commonwealth realms, including Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
