Inside Kensington Palace, the Future Home of the Royal Baby
It’s a boy! At 4:24 p.m. on Monday, July 22, Kate Middleton gave birth to an 8-pound, 6-ounce little prince named George Alexander Louis. After leaving St. Mary’s Hospital in London, word has it the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend some time at Kate’s parents’ house in Bucklebury. Later this year, the couple is expected to move into their permanent home – Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace – once renovations are complete.
While Will and Kate’s future home is still a
work-in-progress, we wonder if the 20-room flat will end up looking anything
like the rest of Kensington Palace, which reopened to the public in 2012 after
a two-year, £12 million ($19 million) renovation. We’ve been checking out
photos of the remodeled palace (gotta get our royal fix until the heir is revealed),
and we have to say, the blend of historic architecture and cutting-edge installations
is really fascinating. Check out the gallery below to see Kensington Palace's new look for
