One of the most stressful things about being a working royal has to be living, even if it's just for part of the year, in places that members of the public can pay to walk through. For just £16.00, for example, tourists and royal fans can explore parts of Kensington Palace.

Prince William, Kate Middleton, and their kids, Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, call the palace home when they're living the city life.

Yet while the public has access to the Palace, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
are said to have particular measures in place to protect their privacy.

According to The Sun, TikTok user Laura-Ann Barr (whose username is @allthatspretty) revealed that Kensington Palace has strategically-frosted windows that make it impossible for tourists to see into the duke and duchess' private garden.

'I’m at the Kensington Palace tour!' she wrote on a clip showing off the blurry view from some of the Palace's windows. 'Look at the secret windows they have that make sure you can’t see into Kate & Will’s private garden to the right. They have it on all the windows in this room.'

It's not clear if the 'secret windows' are something the duke and duchess requested or if they were already in place before the couple moved in. The Cambridge family's living quarters, Kensington Palace's Apartment 1A, used to be occupied by the Queen's sister, Princess Margaret, but the royal couple took over the space in 2013, the same year they welcomed Prince George, and it became their family's primary residence in 2017.

Also, for the record, the fact that Will and Kate's home is called an apartment doesn't do it justice, considering apartments usually range from shoebox sized to just being big enough for comfort.

Apartment 1A, with its four stories and 20 rooms, is huge.
