Kate Middleton And Prince William's Home Has These Top-Secret Features
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge live at apartment 1A in Kensington Palace. The Queen gave them the keys to the residence after their royal wedding in 2011.
Prince William and Kate Middleton occupied the 20-room family home with five reception rooms, three main bedrooms, dressing rooms, a night and day nursery and staff quarters, Mirror reported. But aside from the aforementioned, their home allegedly has a panic room and a secret tunnel to protect the family from "biological warfare."
"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," an unnamed source told Global Citizen.
"The royal panic rooms are designed to withstand poison gas, bombs or terrorist attacks; they are equipped with secure communications, beds, washing equipment and enough food and water for the royals to survive for at least a week," the source added.
They reportedly added the panic room in case of emergency because Prince William and his eldest son, Prince George, are both direct heirs to the throne. As for the secret tunnel, there are speculations that it was what Prince William and Prince Harry used as their secret entrance while growing up.
Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth II also has her own panic rooms. It was reportedly "encased in 18-inch thick, bullet-resistant, fire-retardant steel walls."

In February, an unnamed source spoke with Us Weekly and said the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children — Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3 — usually spend their time away from the palace.
The Cambridges spend more time in Berkshire in south England. The royal couple wants it there because they are very comfortable as a family there.
"The country life suits them so much better in terms of the pace and environment, plus it's not too far from London when they need to commute," the insider said.
Prince William and Middleton found several child daycare centers there, and already have their favorite "village pubs for Sunday roasts." they also found a church they're very familiar with, according to the tipster.
There the couple could blend with the locals. In addition, it's near Middleton's family. So, they are excited to be there because the kids would have the opportunity to bond with their grandparents on their mom's side.
"The plan is to spend plenty more time with the Middletons in Buckleberry, which won't be far from the new residence William and Kate have earmarked as their new primary residence," the source added. "The whole family is extremely excited and can’t wait."
