The church where the Duchess of Cambridge was christened is set to be sold.
The Berkshire church, where Kate was christened in June 1982, is in early talks to be sold to a nearby college, according to the BBC.
Local residents have expressed concern after it was revealed St Andrews Chruch in Bradfield, Berkshire, could be sold to Bradfield College.
Reverand Julian Gadsby told the BBC he was sad the church could be sold but costs had become too high. However, despite the plans, he insisted the churchyard would remain consecrated and locals would be able to visit their loved ones’ graves.
Despite talks still at an early stage, Bradfield College explained: “It has been agreed in principle that the college could provide a good long-term future for St Andrew’s Church, especially as the college has historic links with the church and already uses it for religious services.”
Last month, William and Kate were joined by close family and friends at St James’s Palace for their first child’s christening.
Senior Royals including The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry all attended the 30-minute service inside the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.
The Duchess of Cambridge revealed a day later Prince George had been on his best behaviour during the service, which was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
