Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Unique London Sleeping Arrangement
Home of Prince William and Kate Middleton: The Prince and Princess of Wales have moved to the countryside, but when in London they have a non-traditional sleeping pattern
The Princess of Wales and her husband Prince William have recently moved to Adelaide Cottage with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. However, the Royals still have a base in London in Apartment 1A inside Kensington Palace, and did you know they have a rather unusual sleeping pattern?

Inside their royal abode, the royal couple are believed to 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 royal family, caring for their three children.
Of course, royal fans have never seen inside the couple’s private sleeping quarters, but they were treated to glimpses inside other parts of their magnificent abode.

The Welsh have a stunning home inside Kensington Palace
When the Obamas came to visit, Welsh (then Cambridge) released images of the then US President and First Lady being welcomed into their royal home.
Their living room is very typical of a standard palace, with floral furniture, gilt fittings and lots of antiques.
Surprisingly enough, it has been reported that their children’s rooms have been decorated with IKEA furniture.
Children have IKEA furniture in their bedrooms
In 2018, during a visit to the National Museum of Architecture and Design in Stockholm, Princess Kate told IKEA design manager Marcus Engman that she had chosen to furnishing Prince George’s bedroom with IKEA furniture. The couple also chose to do the same for their daughter Princess Charlotteand we can only guess for little Prince Louis too.
Naturally, Marcus was overjoyed and said: “I’m proud that we can suit everyone. That’s what we want IKEA to be – for as many people in the world as possible. whether it’s royalty or ordinary people.” The couple are believed to have chosen the mainstream brand for its durability.
One can only wonder what Kate and William’s own room looks like!
