Prince William and Kate Middleton’s unusual sleeping arrangements at Palace

A floorplan of Kate Middleton and Prince William's Kensington Palace home has revealed that they have two master bedrooms on the ground floor, according to reports.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge live at Apartment 1A inside Kensington Palace in central London with their children, George, 8, Charlotte, 6, and Louis, 3.

Floorplans reveal a lot about how the family cohabits, but also shows that staff sleep upstairs, with the two master bedrooms downstairs, My London reports.

Their entourage of employees includes royal nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo who works full-time for the Cambridges, caring for their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

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.

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 furnishings, golden accessories and plenty of antique items.

The position of the bedrooms in the palace may be unusual but what is surprisingly normal is that their children's bedrooms have been decorated using IKEA furniture, it’s been reported.

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.
