Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, or Will and Kate as we know them, have gotten the builders in and gotten everything tidied up in their new home, but probably a lot nicer than the rest of us will ever have anything because the makeover has cost £1 million.
The royal couple have been renovating Kensington Palace's Apartment 1A in West London ahead of their big move this autumn and have spent a fortune on making the luxury abode fit for their first child. And when we say apartment, we mean giant ass house in the middle of London.
It was revealed in Buckingham Palace's annual accounts yesterday that building work inside the property and repairs to the roof have cost British taxpayers £1 million so far, sparking outrage amongst anti-royalists. So maybe be glad we don't have that to worry about.
According to the Daily Mirror: 'The Queen has taken over £1million of public money and used it to do up her grandson's flat. If a minister did that they would quite rightly be sacked.'
According to the reports, £400,000 has gone on fixing roof and £600,000 on sprucing up the interior. The revamp also included asbestos removal to make the posh palace pad safe for Prince William and Kate's baby, who is expected to arrive mid-July. The couple will be paying for the interior decorations and furniture with their own cash.
Sir Alan Reid, Keeper of the Privy Purse, insisted the hefty sum was spent on crucial maintenance, adding that the money 'would have to be spent anyway'.
