Kensington Palace is getting a makeover that will affect the tourist areas but not Apartment A where Prince William and his family currently live.
According to a statement from a representative:
“Independent charity Historic Royal Palaces cares for the State Apartments at Kensington Palace which attract 400,000 visitors every year. We hope to create a new building behind the Orangery restaurant at Kensington Palace.”
The plan is to create office space for people who work there as well as create some storage space.
“The new building will provide improved access to the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection, new kitchens, and facilities for the Orangery restaurant. It will also include essential office and workspace enabling us to continue to welcome visitors, students and researchers from around the world. The State Apartments at Kensington Palace are managed separately from areas of the palace used by the Royal Household. Members of the Royal Family have no involvement in this project.”
