Ghost Tours Come to Duke and Duchess’s Home
It’s been rumoured that Prince William and Catherine’s home in London is haunted, and it looks like they plan to capitalise on that in October. This comes as news emerged on Monday that the couple will allow the home to be open to tourists for ghost tours on four nights over Halloween weekend - October 28 - 31.
Kensington Palace became a residence for the royal family when it was bought by King William III and his wife, Mary, in 1689. William and Prince Harry lived there with their mother, Princess Diana, when they were children. The newlywed royal couple, however, has been given a different flat since their marriage.
Despite attempts to lighten up the apartment, it seems that the Duchess of Cambridge can’t drive the restless souls away. A source says rumours about the palace being haunted have spread for years. The warders have logged unusual and strange stories about the place - like screams, ghostly sightings and bumps in the night. It’s fascinating, they added.
During the ghost tours, those who dare to enter will get to hear some of the stories about an anonymous figure that stands by the window and the ghosts of Queen Mary and Peter the Wild Boy. They will also be able to walk the halls, and some who attend will likely just want to say that they have been in the Royals’ home.
However, William and Catherine don’t really plan to spend a lot of time there this year. Instead, they will mostly reside in Anglesey, where the prince is based as a search and rescue pilot.
