Prince George and Princess Charlottes bedrooms are kitted out with IKEA furniture

Taking a look at the divine interiors found inside Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace you might be inclined to think that the bedrooms are much the same.

However, it appears Prince George and Princess Charlotte's bedrooms aren't regal at all, and instead boast declarations akin to any other children's room.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reside in Apartment 1A of Kensington Palace, and it's safe to say it is an impeccable space, that we were afforded a look into during the Obama's visit.

However, the children's rooms are kitted out with IKEA furniture it would appear with the Duchess of Cambridge once telling IKEA's Head of Design, Marcus Engman that she opted for the Swedish brand for the kids' rooms.

Kate reportedly made the admission during a visit to the National Museum of Architecture and Design in Stockholm back in 2018.

Mr Engman said at the time: "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."

The Duke and Duchess spent months renovating the 20-room, four-storey apartment that previously belonged to Princess Margaret.

Rumour has it Apartment 1A of Kensington Palace has five reception rooms, three master bedrooms, a nursery, dressing rooms and staff quarters.

Although the family spend much of their free time at their country retreat Amner Hall in Norfolk, this is their main day-to-day home residence.

In the living room there are pristine beige sofas, which are a classic look, but probably not the most appropriate for young children.

The sofas are adorned with an array of cushions in different fabrics, from velvet to tasseled to silk.

They also have a beautiful floral arrangement on the table and matching lamps that frame the side board.

The drawing room is very spacious with antique furniture. There are different types of chairs from different periods, but the two sofas match.

Large paintings hang in gilded frames and their is a large green and beige carpet across the floor, contributing to the cosy yet classic feel.


Although most of the interior design is very traditional, there are hints of modernity throughout the room.

For instance the perspex glass coffee table with the art books on top.

The Duchess' office is very traditional with a wooden desk which is lined with smart editions of classic novels.

And Prince Williams office comes complete with an ornate marble fireplace, which is in contrast with the modernity of the bright white printer.
