The British royal family knows how to make a public appearance. From royal weddings to christenings and everything in between, it's pretty clear to us how they live their lives publicly. That being said, there's no better way to get to know a family than by getting an inside peek into their lives at home.
We break down some of our favorite photographs of the royals enjoying time in their own personal quarters (and when "home" is Kensington Palace, the photos speak for themselves).
