The Queen has invited Prince William and Kate Middleton to live at the Buckingham Palace after their wedding. Her Majesty has offered to share the palace with the couple so that they can have a secure and private place as they start out as husband and wife.

If they accept the offer, the newlyweds will get a large self-contained pad within the landmark building. However, sources say that the pair are likely to opt for a suite in the less formal surrounds of nearby St James's Palace.

Prince Charles has agreed to let the pair renovate one of the apartments at the rambling complex if they choose it as their London base. Wills currently shares a flat there with Prince Harry.

"Buckingham Palace is an option, not least because it has a lot of spare space, and it's obviously safe from a security point of view,” the


quoted a senior royal source as saying.

However, William is determined to make life as 'normal' as possible after the wedding, which makes an apartment at St James's Palace a more likely choice.
