Ever wondered what it would be to live like a queen? Wonder no more!
Feel free to fulfill all your royal-highness fantasies as we take a sneak peek into the homes of the British Royal Family, along with other much-loved royals and steal some regal decorating inspiration (present and past) from the stately interiors of these notoriously private palaces.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge currently reside in Apartment 1A in the Kensington Palace compound with Prince George and Princess Charlotte — and soon baby number three! The royal couple moved to the London home after a number of years living in their country estate in Norfolk, in order to be closer to where Prince George will attend school. Here Prince William, Duchess Catherine and Prince Harry host Michelle and Barack Obama in the drawing room of the residence. Could you imagine any better company? The new baby is going to love it there. (Photo Credit: Homes to Love)
Although the first time hosting a world leader privately, The Duchess of Cambridge looked pretty comfortable on her plush sofa chatting with Michelle Obama, although we're not sure how that white will fare with not one but three children in the house all under five. (Photo Credit: Homes to Love)
Princes George was sure to show off his vintage toy rocking horse, which we are sure will be passed down to his new little brother or sister. (Photo Credit: Homes to Love)
Buckingham Palace is Her Majesty The Queen's official royal residence where she spends the majority of the year. Here Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh meet the Home Secretary Charles Clarke, the Mayor of London Ken Livingstone and the Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair in the chandelier-adorned White Drawing Room inside Buckingham Palace. We're sure this is one of many rooms which will be off-limits to the new royal baby. (Photo Credit: Getty)
Windsor Castle is the preferred weekend home of Queen Elizabeth II. She takes up official residence for a month over Easter, known as Easter Court. After the disastrous 1992 fire, the castle had to be fully restored with an estimated £37 million damage bill. This photo of the The Green Drawing Room was taken after the restoration, refurbished with gorgeous green accents that are right on-trend today! (Photo Credit: Getty)
Clarence House is the official residence of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. Here, Chinese President Xi Jinping and China's First Lady Peng Liyuan have tea with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles in their home. We can’t keep our eyes off that ottoman!

The Queen and Prince Philip regularly spend two months in the summer at Balmoral Castle in Scotland and we can see why! While the both exterior and interior of the castle are truly breathtaking it’s the immaculately landscapes gardens and this amazing greenhouse that impressed us the most. This is what you call #gardengoals! (Photo Credit: Getty)
The much-loved Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark call the picturesque Amalienborg Palace in Denmark home. This photo was taken at a dinner hosted at the palace by Queen Margrethe II in honor of Turkish President Abdullah Gul. The spectacular artwork and ornate ceilings are right at home in the royal setting. (Photo Credit: Getty)

Princess Letizia of Spain, Prince Felipe of Spain and their children, Princesses Leonor and Sofia pose for a relaxed family portrait at home in Zarzuela Palace in Madrid, Spain. We love the fact that this palace actually looks like a normal family home with refined and sophisticated decor without going over-the-top. (Photo Credit: Getty)
