Prince William and Kate Middleton reside at Apartment 1A inside of Kensington Palace along with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Despite the name, it’s in fact a vast residence with grand décor and plenty of rooms – nothing like an ordinary ‘apartment’. What is even more unusual is the royal couple’s sleeping arrangements.
Inside their regal abode, it is believed that the Duke and Duchess sleep on the ground floor of the property rather than upstairs, as the upper floor is reserved for staff.
Their entourage of employees includes royal nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo who works full-time for the Cambridges, caring for their three children.
Of course, royal fans have never seen inside the couple’s private sleeping quarters, but they have been treated to glimpses inside other parts of their stunning abode.
The Cambridges have a stunning home inside Kensington Palace
When the Obamas came to visit them, the Cambridges released images of the then US President and First Lady being welcomed into their regal home.
Their drawing room is very typical of a standard palace, featuring floral furniture, golden accessories and plenty of antique items.
Rather surprisingly, it has been reported that their children’s bedrooms have been decorated using IKEA furniture.
In 2018, during a visit to the National Museum of Architecture and Design in Stockholm, the Duchess of Cambridge told IKEA’s Head of Design, Marcus Engman, that she had chosen to fit Prince George’s room with IKEA furniture. The couple also opted to do the same for their daughter Princess Charlotte, and we can only presume for little Prince Louis too.
Naturally, Marcus was overjoyed, and said, “I’m proud that we can suit everybody. That’s what we want IKEA to be – for the many people of the world, both royalty and ordinary people.” It is believed the couple selected the mainstream brand for its durability.
We can only wonder what Kate and William’s own bedroom is like!
