Kate Middleton is ready to move out of her parents home with her newborn son Prince George, reports suggest, with the Duchess of Cambridge reportedly keen for some privacy after such a hectic couple of weeks.
Insiders suggest the Duchess and her son will move to Amner Hall in Norfolk earlier than expected so she can enjoy some alone time with George.
Kate, Prince William and Prince George all decamped to Carole and Michael Middleton's Berkshire home two days after the Duchess gave birth on July 22.
With Prince William returning to work with the Royal Air Force this week, Kate is thought to have remained at her parents home, but insiders speculate she's keen to move on soon.
"Kate knows she is very lucky to have such great support, but it can be claustrophobic," a source told Look Magazine.

"What she really wants is no different to any other new mum - privacy and a chance to bond, and she can't do that with members of staff and family popping their heads around the door every five minutes. Even going through the post is taking an hour a day - there are so many cards and letters."
Whilst we're sure Kate is loving every moment of being a first time mum, the source suggests that the Duchess just didn't realise how exhausting it is to have a newborn:
"It's the one thing Kate didn't learn from her maternity books. People want to be supportive, but noise and activity can be exhausting when you're sleep deprived and totally immersed in new motherhood."
The Duke an d Duchess were set to move to Anmer Hall, a ten-bedroom Georgian mansion, later this year according to reports but it's now been suggested the current tenants have agreed to vacate the property early, so Kate, William and George can get settled.
The quiet location in Norfolk is a "selling point" for the Duchess, with their Kensington Palace apartment in London still being renovated.
