Kate Middleton and Prince William spent much of the pandemic at their country estate Anmer Hall in Norfolk with their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, but the family have now returned to Apartment 1A at Kensington Palace as George and Charlotte's school, St Thomas's in Battersea, has reopened.

Naturally, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tend to keep their lives as private as possible, but over the years, Kate has revealed much of the insides of their properties whilst taking official photos of the family at home.

She is the first royal mum to do so, and her flair for photography has since earned her the patronage of the Royal Photographic Society, a role she acquired from the Queen who served in the position for 67 years. Take a look back at some of the most beautiful photos taken by Kate at home…

Kate first assumed the responsibility for taking official photographs of the family when Princess Charlotte was born in 2015. She captured a series of four photos, showing Prince George holding Princess Charlotte at their home in Anmer Hall. They sat on a large cream corner sofa with white cushions.

On Princess Charlotte's first birthday in May 2016, Kate shared a photo of her daughter in another room of Anmer Hall. It features a grey woven chair which Charlotte sat on, and a large cream and brown striped sofa in the background, furnished with a selection of patterned cushions.

In May 2018, Kate and Prince William shared a photograph of Prince Louis at their home at Kensington Palace. He laid on a bed with white bed linen embroidered with pink roses, and a headboard featuring a pink and white pattern.

It seems that pink and white is a recurring theme in Kate and William's homes, as this photo taken in Kensington Palace revealed more cushions embroidered with pink patterns.
