Kate Middleton may be pregnant, but that doesn't mean she's ready to settle in one place.
Reports out of England indicate that Prince William has taken a job as an air ambulance operator that will pay him the equivalent of about $30,000 US dollars a year, and require Will and his family to live most of the year at Anmer Hall in rural Norfolk.
It may sound admirable: Will taking a low-paying, potentially dangerous job that will benefit others, rather than relaxing on a throne somewhere, but many Brits are justifiably pissed that Will continues to shirk his royal duties, and waited until after his 22-room apartment was renovated top-to-bottom (at great expense to tax payers) before announcing his intention to live elsewhere.
Naturally, there's plenty of speculation as to whether Will and Kate have ulterior motives for fleeing the hustle and bustle of London.
There have long been rumors that Kate's been clashing with the Queen over everything from her mothering, to her spending habits, to her "wardrobe malfunctions." (We'll sincerely miss Kate Middleton wardrobe malfunctions when she moves to the boonies.)
Is the royal couple moving as far as possible from Buckingham Palace to avoid further feuding?
Or is there a much more obvious and understandable motivation here?
Prince George celebrates his first birthday today, and it won't be long before the young lad is aware of the constant throng of paparazzi that surrounds him everywhere he goes.
Given Will's family's history with the paps, we can definitely see why he'd want to move someplace where that might be less of a problem.
