Shortly after their child’s birth, Prince William and his wife, Kate, the duchess of Cambridge, moved from the peaceful home they shared in Anglesey, Wales to a busier life that awaited them in London. However, according to the UPI on Nov. 4, the couple couldn’t move into their royal estate, Kensington Palace, until it complete renovation was finished.
The 20-bedroom Apartment 1A needed to have all the asbestos removed for one thing. According to a place insider, it took 18 months for the renovations Kate ordered to be completed. In addition to removing the carcinogenic substance, the living space now has encrypted Wi-Fi, a state of the art panic room, three kitchens and central air conditioning.
Some of the apartment’s more significant historical features were kept intact but Middleton relied on her mother’s designer, Anne Allen, to give the space a more personalized feel, using earth tones, beiges and cream colors.
The family will host a housewarming party on Nov. 26 to show off the remodel with proceeds going to the homeless. On the program to perform at the event are Taylor Swift, James Blunt and Eliza Doolittle.
