Royal experts have given an eye-opening glimpse inside Kate Middleton and Prince William's main residence at Kensington Palace, which has "20 rooms from the basement to the attic".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are living with their three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – in their private Apartment 1A in west London.

But royal commentators opened up about the reality of the property and said the residence is not a small abode given its "apartment" title.

During an episode of True Royalty TV's series, Royal Beat, presenter Kate Thornton started the topic as she said: "The 1A suggests it's quite a tiny place, that is not the case at all, is it?"

Royal expert Ingrid Seward then replied: "No, it is enormous. It has 20 rooms from the basement to the attic, it is not a small house."

Footage shows a great hall with high ceiling where at least four crystal chandeliers are seen hanging from the top.

The dark golden-hued decor accompanies with the bronze statue and marble pillars in the room.

Another clip reveals a spacious area with two staircases on each side leading to the rooms on the upper floor.

Kate further asked why the residence is called an apartment, and guest Christopher Warwick said: "All of these royal residences at Kensington Palace are called apartments which of course makes people immediately think they are flats like the American term for an apartment meaning it is a flat.

"They are not. If you think of Kensington Palace, in a way it is built around three courtyards.

"If you kind of think of them as being these wonderful red brick terrace houses if you like. Because they are all joined but separate houses."

Richard Kay added that the four-storey apartment is "pretty grand inside".

The Cambridges also have Anmer Hall in Norfolk as a second home, where the family isolated at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
