The Prince and Princess of Wales moved from Kensington Palace to Adelaide Cottage last year – and here’s why Prince William and Princess Kate have an altogether different bedroom set-up now
The Prince and Princess of Wales moved to Adelaide Cottage in Windsor in September last year, and it has a beautiful garden for their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and PrinceLouis to enjoy.
As well as their surroundings being very different from their central London home of Apartment 1A inside of Kensington Palacethe royal couple have a different bedroom set-up at the cottage too.

Prince William and Princess Kates master bedroom at their London home used to be on the ground floor, an unusual arrangement but their staff used to reside on the upper floor.
When the family downsized to the four-bedroom Windsor home, they ditched their live in staff and it seems very likely that they would now sleep upstairs, as in most standard properties.
The family used to reside at Kensington Palace
As the family may have moved to a more rural home for privacy, it is unsurprising that they have not shared any photos of the inside of their historical home.
However, when the Prince of Wales spoke to emergency service workers who are helping the recovery project following flooding in Australia, he did give royal fans a glimpse inside his private residence.

The video call appeared to be from the family’s cozy study with beige walls, an upholstered armchair and a vintage wooden dresser.
The dark varnished unit contained plenty of decorative items, everything from china plates to a white ornament of a man riding a horse. Perhaps this is a clue about the rest of their traditional décor?
The children are being raised in the countryside
According to The Sun, the couple’s bedroom features golden dolphins and ceiling rope decorations recycled from a 19th century royal yacht, creating an interesting nautical-inspired theme. Of course, the royals could have changed the interiors but they do have to be careful about any refurbishments considering the heritage of the home.
