The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are lucky enough to divide their time between two properties with their children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The couple typically spend much of their time at their London residence, Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace. However, during the coronavirus pandemic they have been based at their Norfolk retreat, Anmer Hall, which was a wedding gift to Prince William and Kate from the Queen. They are now preparing to return to their home in London as the childrens' school holidays come to an end. It is a four-storey apartment with 20 rooms including five reception rooms, three main bedrooms, dressing rooms, a night and day nursery, and staff quarters. It was previously home to Princess Margaret. The Duke and Duchess hosted a special event at the Palace in early October for BBC Radio 1's Teen Heroes of 2019, along with Camilla Cabello and DJs Clara Amfo and Greg James.
