Duchess of Cambridge ‘inspired’ by Denmark’s Princess Mary

The Duchess of Cambridge has taken inspiration from Denmark’s Crown Prince Frederik and his wife Princess Mary in decorating her and Prince William’s new apartment at Kensington Palace.

William and Kate visited Denmark in November 2011, where they teamed up with the Danish royal couple to visit UNICEF’s headquarters.

After the engagement, Frederik and Mary welcomed William and Kate for lunch at their apartment at the Amelienborg Palace.

“Mary showed them around their apartment at the Amelienborg Palace and they loved the way they had combined their collection of modern art with antique furniture,” a Palace source said.

“Kate was truly inspired and wants to use some similar ideas in some of the rooms at Kensington Palace.”

Last week, it was revealed the new parents and Prince George are set to move into their London residence this week, after two years of renovations come to an end.


The Duke, Duchess and Prince George will move into Kensington Palace in the coming days.

The Duchess, who has a 2:1 history of art degree, has been overseeing the decorations and has been spotted shopping in London’s Sloane Square for new home.

The royal couple are making the full-time move to Kensington Palace after Prince William’s tour of duty in Anglesey comes to an end.

During William’s time on the North Wales island the couple rented a modest cottage where they were able to enjoy the start of married life away from the London.
