Kate Middleton & William’s subtle trick to stopping public peeking into their private garden at Kensington Palace


KATE Middleton and Prince William have revealed their very subtle trick to ensuring no members of the public peek into their private garden.

Royal fans can tour round certain parts of Kensington Palace home, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have ways of ensuring their privacy.

One fan who toured round the palace revealed Kate and William have some windows blocked out.

TikTok user Laura-Ann Barr, who posts under @allthatspretty, wrote: “I’m at the Kensington Palace tour!

“Look at the secret windows they have that make sure you can’t see into Kate & Will’s private garden to the right.

“They have it on all the windows in this room.”

Kate and Prince William’s swanky Kensington Palace apartment is said to be “enormous” with “20 rooms from the basement to the attic”, royal experts have claimed. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge live in Apartment 1A when staying in London with Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three.

But despite being called an “apartment”, royal experts have said the royal dwelling is anything but small. 

Speaking on True Royalty’s Royal Beat, British royal author Christopher Warwick said: “It has 20 rooms from the basement to the attic, it is not a small house.

“All of these royal residences at Kensington Palace are called apartments, which of course makes people immediately think they are flats like the American term for an apartment.

“They are not. If you think of Kensington Place in a way it is built around three courtyards. 

“If you kind of think of them as being these wonderful red brick terrace houses. Because they are all joined, but separate houses.”

Meanwhile, royal author Ingrid Seward said: “It’s enormous… and it’s like a piece of countryside in London.”

Apartment 1A is spread over four floors and takes up half the Clock Tower wing designed by Sir Christopher Wren for King William and Queen Mary.

The Cambridges have five reception rooms, three main bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, as well as his-and-hers dressing rooms. 

Perfect for George, Charlotte and Louis, there is a day nursery for the youngsters, and a night nursery for them to sleep in.

The royal tots also have their own walled garden to play in and do their favourite outdoor activity, spider hunting.

Of course the family has lots of staff at their beck and call, and there are nine bedrooms for employees on the top floor, which can be reached by a lift. 

Meanwhile, in the basement there is a gym, laundry room and space for luggage. 

Kensington Palace is open to the public for tours, but certain areas are kept private for the Cambridges

These are the subtle signs Kate is ramping up royal training for when she becomes Queen.
