The privacy trick Kensington Palace has implemented to ensure that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s garden remains private has been revealed.
Royal fans can book a tour of Kensington Palace, with some aspects of the grand building available for tourists to look around.
However there is a part of the mansion, which is where William and Kate, along with their three children, George, Charlotte and Louis reside when in London, that remains completely private, and it’s all thanks to a quick and easy trick.
It has now been revealed that parts of Kensington Palace have partially frosted windows, most notably a room where the windows directly overlook the Cambridge’s private garden.

Laura-Ann Barr, an avid royal fan, recently completed one of the Kensington Palace tours when she visited London from Northern Ireland and documented the experience on her TikTok profile.
He shared footage of the windows, showing half of the window is frosted, cleverly preventing tourists from sneaking a glimpse into the Cambridge garden.
Laura told her TikTok followers: “I’m on the Kensington Palace tour.
“Look at the secret windows they have to make sure you can’t see into Kate and Will’s private garden on the right! They have it on every window in this room.”
Kate and William reside in Apartment 1A in Kensington Palace, which occupies four floors and has own large private garden facing south.
Despite being called an apartment, the house is said to be huge with more than 20 rooms.
British royal author Christopher Warwick had previously talked about the incredible residence, recounting True Royalty’s real beat: “It has 20 rooms from basement to attic, it’s not a small house.
“All of these royal residences in Kensington Palace are called apartments, which of course immediately makes people think they are apartments 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 think of them as these wonderful red brick terraced houses. Because they are all connected, but separate houses.”
Royal author Ingrid Seward previously agreed, adding, “It’s huge … and it’s like a piece of countryside in London. ‘”
Royal fans got a glimpse of Kate and William’s home in 2016, when they hosted Michelle and Barack Obama in the living room of Apartment 1A.
The property was recently refurbished, costing over £ 4.5 million, and Kate is believed to have hired an interior designer to help her refurbish the huge house.
