When baker Sophie Cabot prepared the wedding cake for Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank's nuptials in October 2018, she was photographed inside, showing a marble island unit in the middle and endless stainless-steel appliances.

The room is designed for cooking on a mass scale, and so it makes sense that it is equipped with industrial equipment. Efficient use of space is also key, with wooden panels and rods mounted on the walls for every kind of cake tin you can think of.

Claire Ptak, head baker for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding in May 2018, used the space to perfect the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's cake.

Pictures showed that there are stainless-steel splashback panels behind each sink, as well as shelves positioned above, where ingredients and kitchenware are stored.

Copper saucepans dating back as far as King George IV's reign are stacked on racks in the kitchens, with sizes to suit every purpose.

Buckingham Palace has served as the monarch's royal residence since Queen Victoria decided to renovate the previously vacant property in 1837. The former Queen extended the property and added many touches that still stand today, including the famous balcony at the front, where the royal family often gather for occasions such as Trooping the Colour.

Inside, there is a total of 775 rooms, including 19 state rooms, 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 92 offices, 78 bathrooms and 188 bedrooms for household staff.
