Kate and William’s genius privacy tactic to prevent fans peeking into Palace garden


KATE, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William use a clever privacy hack to conceal the view into their private garden, a royal fan spotted while on a tour of Kensington Palace.

In the video, she said: “I’m at the Kensington Palace tour. Look at the secret windows they have that make sure you can’t see into Kate and Wills’ private garden to the right.

“They have it on all the windows in this room.”

The frosted panelling appeared to be effective as the video showed the grounds to be completely obscured.

Royal fans celebrated the couple’s ingenious trick, with one commenting: “I’m actually happy at the thought of their kids being able to play outside their home like normal”.

Another said: “That’s great! They are entitled to their privacy, especially for their children.”

The Cambridges also have a top secret panic room and a special escape tunnel, according to reports.

Global Citizen reported: “Kate and William’s royal apartment at Kensington Palace includes a panic room with an air filtration system, guarding against biological warfare, and an escape tunnel.”

The Times reported the two royal residences as having “a bullet-resistant and fire-retardant steel core” in the form of “18inch thick steel walls”.

They are supposed to protect the buildings against threats including “poison gas, bomb attacks or assassination by terrorists”.

It comes after Prince Harry and Meghan recently experienced two intruder alerts in just 12 days at their home in California.

It is believed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were at their mansion in Montecito with their children Archie and Lilibet when the alarms were triggered.

Santa Barbara Police records show that officers went to the £11million home on the couple’s wedding anniversary on May 19.

They returned for a second intruder alert on May 31 at 3.21pm just hours before the Sussexes boarded a private jet to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Both calls were logged as “trespasser”, “property crimes” and “suspicious circumstances”, it has been reported.
