Congratulations to tenants William and Catherine

The Brown Couch congratulates tenants William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, on the birth of their son and future Australian monarch, George.

Their Royal Highnesses rent their home, a farm house on the Isle of Anglesea, off the coast of Wales. (Although, according to reports, the young family is shortly to move to new digs, with some help from William's gran.)

As a renting family, their Highnesses are in good company amongst subjects in New South Wales too: here about 40 per cent of rented houses are homes to children.

In fact, about a quarter of all people living in rented houses in New South Wales are children under the age of 14 – and almost half of all Aboriginal people living in rented houses in New South Wales are kids.

Best wishes and good luck to William, Catherine and George, and all the other parents and kids trying to make a home in rental housing.
