The Royal Family have defended spending a seven-figure sum refurbishing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Kensington Palace apartment.
A royal spokesman said repairs and refurbishments - reported to cost around £4 million, though this figure was not confirmed by the royal household - included "significant amount of internal building" to "return the residence to function as a living space".
William and Kate's Kensington Palace apartment was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and was the home of Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon. Margaret remained there after their divorce and lived there until her death in 2002.
The living space was last refurbished in 1963.

He said William and Kate "paid privately" for all the internal furnishings, including carpets and curtains.
The cost of renovating the new Kensington Palace home of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is to reach £4 million pounds, according to reports.
The taxpayer will foot the bill for extensive work on the property, including installing a new roof, overhauling the electrics and carrying out significant plumbing works.
