So much for living without servants for three straight years. Now that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, have returned from their honeymoon, they're to establish a residence in London's Kensington Palace. Their modest house in Wales will still serve as home base, but they'll be able to escape to the posh confines of the grand manor home whenever business calls them to the city. Several royals live there already: the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke and Duchess of Kent, and the controversial Prince and Princess Michael of Kent. The palace is perhaps best known, however, for being the place where William and his brother, Harry, grew up, and where Princess Diana lived for many years. It must be filled with many happy and sad memories for the prince.

But whatever; it's better than when they had to live with Harry at Clarence House. According to the Daily Mail, it was not unheard of for Kate to accidentally walk into Harry's room to find one of her own friends passed out in his bed.
