Royal watchers may find this down-to-earth attitude of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge quite surprising. But we have to keep in mind, even though George and Charlotte have some IKEA furniture in their rooms, they live in Kensington Palace after all, where many kings and queens, including Queen Victoria, used to live.

Kensington Palace was a home for Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1981, who used to live in Apartment 8, which, according to The Week, has two nurseries, three kitchens, and a couple of rooms specifically dedicated to charities set up by Princess Diana.
