Many of us will be curious about the royal residences, what it really looks like behind the palace doors and how members of the Royal Family really live day to day.
Kate Middleton and Prince William have a home within Kensington Palace where they live with their three children, staff and royal nanny Maria Teresa Borrallo.
The couple’s official London residence is Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace and the inside of the plush home has rarely been seen by the public.
We were treated to a rare glimpse when the Obamas were in town on a state visit. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released images of the then US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle in the drawing room of their regal home.

The room, which was thought to be very typical of a standard palace, was tastefully decorated in the classic style with floral furniture, golden accessories and antiques.
But in a further revelation about living arrangements within the palace you might be surprised to learn that the family bedrooms are very different to most people’s homes.
The unusual layout was revealed via a floorplan of the royal residence which showed the family have two master bedrooms located on the ground floor.

Most average homes tend to have the main bedrooms on the upper floors, but for the royal couple, it’s understood these floors are mainly dedicated to their staff so the ground floor is their own.
While the other rooms in the house have not been seen, it’s been reported that Kate opted for IKEA furniture to kit out the children’s bedroom.
It seems the Duchess, like many of us, is a fan of the Scandinavian design giant’s modern, flat pack furniture.
Kate reportedly 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.
The IKEA boss 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.
