DETROIT, Mi. – Prince William and his lovely wife Kate Middleton have purchased a two-bedroom home in Detroit’s east side, Nancy Baker, a local real estate agent who sealed the deal with the royal couple, told the Detroit Free Press on Tuesday.
After visiting several properties in the greater Detroit area, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge settled on modest Victorian-style home with a screened-in porch nestled comfortably on the corner of Helen Street and Mack Avenue. “It’s such a beautiful property,” Mrs. Baker said of the single-family home located across the street from the Greater Mt. Carmel Missionary Baptist church.
The strapping Prince William and his delightful wife, Catherine, are rumored to have already enrolled young Prince George at Bunche Elementary-Middle School on Macomb Street where he will begin kindergarten this fall. “The Duke and Duchess have expressed a rather peculiar desire to expose Prince George to the life of a simple peasant,” a source close to the Royal family told the popular British tabloid The Sun.
Many parts of Detroit, particularly the city’s east side where the prince and Kate Middleton plan to raise their two children, are ranked among the highest in the country for violent crime. “The neighborhood consisting of Mack Avenue and Helen Street in downtown Detroit has an eighty-nine percent child poverty rate,” said Brian Whitaker, an investigator with the Southern Poverty Law Center. “However we expect that percentage will drop by at least half following the arrival of the royal family.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, are expected to arrive at Detroit Metropolitan Airport in Wayne County on Thursday, June 30th. The Royal family are scheduled to hold court with Detroit mayor Mike Duggan before finally settling in at their new residence.
