Prince William shares rare glimpse of home office in Kensington Palace featuring sweet nod to Kate

Prince William has given royal fans a glimpse inside the walls of Kensington Palace after sharing some photos of his home office.

The Duke of Cambridge made the post on social media yesterday appealing for answers to a question about a charity engagement he is involved in.

The candid snap shows a lavish work space with a huge wooden desk and a cream sofa decorated with red fringe cushions.

Behind the Duke was a styled piled of books, including Kate Middleton's own Hold Still book.

The space is often used by both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they appear in virtual Zoom appearances.

The Prince later took part in an interview as part of the project from his office where fans spotted framed photos of the family.

In videos shared from the Instagram live event, William is sitting in his office which also features a cute sausage dog ornament under the table.

William lives in Apartment 1A of Kensington Palace with his wife Kate Middleton and their three children, George, 8, Charlotte, 6, and Louis, 3.


In line with royal protocol, neither give interviews about their home life but a floor plan of their home has revealed the layout of their home.

Rather than upstairs, the main bedroom the couple share is unusually on the ground floor of Kensington Palace’s Apartment 1A while the upstairs is used mainly by their staff.

1A Kensington Palace isn’t your average apartment and instead is a four-storey mansion featuring its own lift, gym and nine rooms just for the staff.

The property is reported to be ‘enormous’ all the way from the basement through to the attic.

Explaining why it is referred to as an ‘apartment’ on True Royalty's Royal Beat, British royal author Christopher Warwick said:

“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 the Cambridges London base; however, they also have their Norfolk country home Anmer Hall, where the family was quarantined during the UK lockdown.
