Their new home, Adelaide Cottage, is significantly smaller in comparison to their current residence, which underwent significant renovations prior to the family moving in. However, it is likely the Cambridges will still keep their London home as a base in the capital, along with Anmer Hall, their Sandringham retreat.

In a post discussing the importance of mental health during self-isolation, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared photos of their home offices in Kensington Palace, and Kate's revealed a collection of Penguin Clothbound Classics. The books, which are stacked in a row on her desk, retail at £11 each. As for the rest of the area, Kate has a large wooden desk, and a striped chair with wooden framing.
