You would imagine that every royal residence is decked out with the finest furniture from the world’s top brands, but it would appear that this isn’t the case for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Prince William and Catherine have pledged their normality time and time again, from how they are raising their children away from the public eye to how they support charities and causes that were previously marginalised.
And yet again, the popular couple have delighted royal fans as it has been revealed that they decorate their three young children’s bedrooms in much the same way as millions of parents across the world.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge call Apartment 1A of Kensington Palace home, and there is no doubt that the couple have immaculate taste.
In pictures revealed in the past, we have been afforded a glance behind closed doors at their home, and it is safe to say it is every inch the royal residence.
When the couple met with former US President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama during their state visit in 2016, we were offered an intimate glimpse at the stunning décor.
With incredible paintings, ornamental lamps and decorative tables everywhere you look, it is an amazing home.
The drawing room aside, it would appear that the parents have chosen to deck out the royal children’s rooms with IKEA furniture.
In 2018, during a visit to the National Museum of Architecture and Design in Stockholm, the Duchess of Cambridge told IKEA’s Head of Design, Marcus Engman, that she had chosen to fill their rooms with furniture from the popular Swedish brand.

Mr Engman was delighted with the news and said: “I’m proud that we can suit everybody.
“That’s what we want IKEA to be – for the many people of the world, both royalty and ordinary people.”
While we know that the little royal’s bedrooms include furniture from the relatively inexpensive and easy-to-clean brand, it is reportedly their dad, Prince William, who has a messy house habit.
The revelation came about during a tour of an RAF base in Cyprus back in 2018 where the couple were present to open a new recreation facility.
William saw the light coloured chairs in the room and jokingly warned the service personnel to “keep the pizza off the sofas”, to which Catherine had the best reply.
She hilariously quipped: “You’re a nightmare with that!”
Perhaps the family should get easy-clean furniture in William’s parts of the property as well.
