Pregnant Kate Middleton and Prince William's Country Move Could Be Delayed by Archaeological Dig

Hope Kate Middleton didn't put too much planning into her baby's nursery, because it looks like the royal baby won't be living where mom and dad had planned!

The mom-to-be and Prince William were reportedly planning to live at Anmer Hall, a massive country mansion on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk. But, according to the U.K.'s Telegraph, an archaeological dig might put a delay on improvements the parents-to-be planned to make, thus delaying their move-in date.

Part of Will and Kate's improvement plans for the home include moving the gate in order to keep members of the public and paparazzi further away. The couple is also reportedly hoping to build an addition to the home, as well as plant more trees for added privacy. But, because part of the land was once the site of the village of Anmer in medieval times, archaeologists want to look into the historic importance of the area before any of this construction can be completed.

Should the dig turn up anything of significance, Kate and Will's reported move-in date could be pushed back any further.

A St. James's Palace spokesperson, however, told the Telegraph: "We have got no statement. We have never actually confirmed they will be moving there."

Fortunately, even if the royal couple's plans are uprooted, there are no doubt plenty of other palaces they are welcome to call home.
