Security measures are now being reinforced at Wills and Kate’s Kensington Palace apartment — close to Buckingham Palace — before they move in later this year.
Plans for the lavish central London home include a $5 million bill for a bomb-proof double door to prevent intruders, rising bollards and CCTV. All windows are to have bullet-proof glass, there will be a “panic” room and escape tunnel and a communications network will be protected by an elite SAS unit, palace sources confirmed.
An undisclosed sum, thought to run into several millions, is being spent on the Queen’s late sister Princess Margaret’s former apartment. All contractors are understood to have been sworn to silence under the Official Secrets Act in Britain, prohibiting the disclosure of confidential material from government sources by employees.
Wills and Kate — who confirmed their pregnancy last December, after Middleton, 31, was hospitalized for hyperemesis gravidarum, a rare form of morning sickness — are likely to move to Kensington Palace a couple of months after the baby is born.
