The clever yet simple method Prince William and Kate Middleton use to make sure tourists visiting their London home can't catch a glimpse of them enjoying down time at home.
- A viral TikTok video has revealed that Kate and William take precautions to make sure visitors to their London home, Kensington Palace, can't see them while they're enjoying their home life.
- The Cambridges spend the majority of the time living in Kensington Palace's Apartment 1A, nearby to Buckingham Palace—but escape to their Norfolk country home, Amner Hall, during the school holidays.
- In other royal news, one of Kate Middleton's friends reportedly revealed that the Duchess never wanted fame, just a quiet countryside life with lots of kids.
While large sections of Kensington Palace are reserved for Kate, William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis' living quarters, the iconic royal residence, where Princess Diana once lived, is open for tourists to visit.
One royal fan who spent the day exploring the lavish home shared an insight into how visitors are kept from looking from the public aspects of Kensington Palace, into the Cambridges' private areas.
Laura-Ann Bar shared a video on TikTok of the windows in Kensington Palace that have semi-invisible frosting on one side, preventing anyone from craning their necks and looking down into Kate and William's garden.

"I’m at the Kensington Palace tour! Look at the secret windows they have that make sure you can’t see into Kate & Will’s private garden to the right," Laura wrote along with a clip demonstrating how the privacy glass works. They have it on all the windows in this room," she wrote.
In the caption for the upload, Laura went on to joke, ""They are onto us 😂👀👑,"
Kate and William have shared more up-close looks inside Apartment 1A than ever before in recent years, with the pandemic meaning that lots of their royal work was conducted from home, with footage and snaps being shared across their social media channel.
