(Wills & Kate) Easier for some people to get on the housing ladder than others

I suppose it's inevitable really, when there are so many properties in the family, that house swapping is rife.

Wills & Kate don't really have to bother with estate agents, raising a deposit or the disappointment of being outbid; they can just swap houses seemingly at a whim.

I'm just jealous LoL. No hard feelings - each to their own ends and means.

(Now, where's me HIP?)

Your last sentence explains why you are not in the same position as Wills and Kate.

For goodness sake it is "Now, where is *One's * HIP"

The Royal Family are an anachronism...but 'one' has just got to accept this fact.

must have got bored living in the remote cottage they had in north wales, has the military given him an office job in london?

Oh you are right ones...

Homes marketed for sale on or after 21 May 2010 no longer require a Home Information Pack (HIP) but you do need an EPC to have been commissioned.

If the couple go on BBC's 'Homes Under The Hammer' I will eat my words...with 'humble pie'...your Majesty!

Well you have to feel sorry for them as they cannot move in for about 2 years until it gets refurbished.

Also a lot of asbestos has to be removed as well.

Looks like it is going to cost them a fortune to get all that done.

What do you think.

I wouldn't swap places with them.

I'm with onionskin on this, I'd hate to live in London for a start, and I can't begin to understand the type of pressure they must be under from press and media.

A cushy apartment is not adequate compensation...
