LONDON, June 6 (UPI) -- Britain's Prince William and his new bride Kate are moving into Kensington Palace, the London home where William grew up, royal family officials said.

The son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana married Kate Middleton in an opulent ceremony in April.

"The couple's official London residence will temporarily become a property at Kensington Palace," E! News quoted a spokesman for St. James' Palace as saying Monday. "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, [North Wales,] and their household office will continue to be based at St. James' Palace."

A representative for the couple told E! News the space in Kensington Palace is too small for them to make it their permanent home.

"While it more than suffices for occasional visits to London for now, and the royal couple are very grateful for it, the duke and duchess are considering options for a more permanent official London residence. No suitable properties are currently available," the representative said.
