LONDON (AP).- Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting a London apartment — in a palace — and the new royal bride is putting her famous wedding gown on public display.

Palace officials said the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — as the newlyweds are formally known now — would use a small refurbished apartment at Kensington Palace as their official London home for the next year or so.

The move is considered a temporary measure as their primary house will remain in Anglesey, Wales, where William serves as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue helicopter pilot. That is expected to be their main residence until 2013.

They are expected to move into larger London quarters later.

Kensington Palace, which is being extensively renovated, was once home to William's mother, the late Princess Diana. William also lived there as a child before his parents divorced.

Royal Collection officials also announced Monday that Middleton's memorable wedding gown will be on display at Buckingham Palace from July 23 until Oct. 3. The dress was designed by Sarah Burton of the Alexander McQueen fashion house.

Royal collection officials said the special exhibit will also display the veil, tiara, shoes and diamond earrings Middleton wore for her April 29 wedding.

The wedding display will be part of a popular tour of some of the palace's state rooms offered to visitors during the summer. The tour includes a chance to see some of the queen's formidable art collection, including works by Rembrandt and Rubens.

The state room tour typically costs 17.50 pounds ($29).

A date for the couple's move into Kensington Palace has not been set, but is expected before they travel to Canada and the United States later in June.
