Prince Harry has finally left Clarence House where his father lives and followed his brother, William, and the Duchess of Cambridge to the newly refurbished Kensington Palace. The Princes are like two peas in a pod, they adore each other and don’t want to be separated.
The two men have always been key sources of support for each other, as proven recently on Harry’s official royal trip to the Caribbean; William was always on hand to offer advice to his younger brother over the phone, even though he was serving the RAF in the Falklands.
An anonymous royal source told CNN: “Prince Harry and Prince William are a double act for the rest of their lives. They are very loyal and trust each other. Loyalty is key. Harry is very respectful towards William.” This is not the first time the Princes have occupied Kensington Palace— they lived there with Princess Diana when they were young.
The Duke and Duchess will occupy a renovated suite of rooms in Kensington come 2013, but for now they live on the Palace grounds, in Nottingham Cottage, and Prince Harry is in an apartment nearby. Harry is expected to take over the cottage once William and Katemove into their suite. But, before then, Harry is expected to go to Afghanistan for a second round of military service as an Apache pilot.

The Duchess of Cambridge was reunited with her fairytale Prince this morning when he returned from a seven week RAF deployment to the Falkland Islands.
William touched down in the U.K. at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, where his wife anxiously awaited him.
The couple will now spend a few days at Kensington Palace directly following the completion of a £12 million ($18.8 million) renovation, before returning to North Wales, reports the Telegraph.

A spokesman for the William said: “The Duke of Cambridge returned to the UK this morning following completion of a routine operational deployment in the Falkland Islands as part of a four man Search and Rescue crew.”
“He will now have a brief period of leave before resuming Search and Rescue duties from RAF Valley shortly.”

The Duke of Cambridge will be deployed on RAF duties to the Falkland Islands from March through February 2012, a move an official in Argetina claims has political implications.
The duke will arrive at his destination shortly before the 30th anniversary of Argentina‘s defeat in the Falklands War.
Argentine official Sebastian Brugo Marco calls William’s posting in the region during this time interval a “provocative act.”
Marco told the Argentine newspaper La Nacion:”It is one more provocative act that shows Britain’s military presence in a zone of peace where there is no armed conflict,”
“One cannot ignore the political content of this military operation bearing in mind that the prince forms part of the Royal Family.”
The Ministry of Defence insists that the duke’s posting is a “routine deployment,” and that it forms part of a “normal” squadron rotation, reports the Associated Press.
While William is away, Kate will move into their newly renovated suite of rooms at Kensington Palace.
