The Cambridge family will have more "freedom" if they move to Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor estate, according to an expert.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are reported to be moving from Kensington Palace with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Biographer Ingrid Seward says their current home restricts their movements because there are "hundreds of people every day" behind the garden wall.

The high levels of security mean "Kate can't walk in the park like Diana used to" and is unable to take her dog out to it, reports Newsweek.

Speaking to True Royalty TV's The Royal Beat Seward said: "I remember Harry saying to a friend of mine that Kate was almost a prisoner at Kensington Palace, and I thought 'don't be ridiculous, it's the most gorgeous place to live in London.

"Then I thought about it and yes, in a way they are prisoners there because they have a beautiful house and a beautiful garden but beyond that garden are hundreds of people every day and massive security."

"The only place to go is a field where the helicopters land so you are very imprisoned and everyone knows what you're doing and coming and going. So I do understand [in moving to Adelaide Cottage] that their children will have the freedom of Windsor Great Park and the security of being right next to the queen."

The news comes after it was revealed that William and Kate's two eldest children are set to leave their prep school Thomas's Battersea in London at the end of their current term.

The kids are expected to enrol in a school within the Windsor area, according to People Magazine.

However, William and Kate will continue to use Kensington Palace as their home base in London.
