After Prince William and Kate Middleton get married on Friday, they will live in an apartment in the royal mansion Clarence House, as AOL Real Estate reported last week in "Prince William and Kate to Live in Royal Mansion." But, apparently, that is only when they're in London. For now, they plan to continue living in a whitewashed farmhouse for which William pays around $1,200 a month, on the island of Anglesey, where William is based while serving as a Royal Air Force search and rescue pilot, according to London's Daily Mail newspaper.

Once William finishes his three years of service, the new royal couple plans to spend the bulk of their first couple years of married life in a 6-bedroom green home that his father, Prince Charles, had built at Harewood Park in Herefordshire, a remote area of North Wales, says the Mail.

The home sits on a 900-acre estate bought by the Duchy of Cornwall, which also pays Prince Charles with his annual income, in 2000. Per Charles's instructions, the new construction is eco-friendly, including a reed-bed sewage system, solar panels, and walls lined with wool insulation.
