Prince William and Kate Middleton are said to be living in the most haunted part of Kensington Palace.
There have been multiple reported ghost sightings in 1A, the apartment where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge reside with their three young children.
The ghost of a deformed "wild boy" who once lived in the West London property is believed to wander the nursery where Prince George, Princess Charlotte and now little Prince Louis slept.
A feral boy was discovered naked and alone in a German forest in 1725. He was brought to live at Kensington Palace as a "human pet" for King George I, and was given the name "Peter the Wild Boy".
A court painting of Peter that still hangs in the Palace shows he had severe facial abnormalities, prompting modern experts to speculate he may have had the rare Pitt-Hopkins Syndrome.

Symptoms of the condition include intellectual disability and developmental delay, breathing problems, epilepsy and distinctive facial features.
Peter couldn't speak and refused to learn table manners, and preferred to curl up in a corner of his room rather than sleep in his bed.
Eventually the court tired of him and paid for him to live on a farm in Hertfordshire. He lived to the age of 70 but the only words he ever spoke were "Peter" and "King George".
After his death, Peter's spirit was said to haunt the room currently being used as Prince Louis' nursery.
Other ghosts spotted in Apartment 1A include George II, who died in 1760 amid the devastating Seven Years' War.
The King's last words were reported to be "Why won't they come?" as the elderly monarch despaired that he had not heard from his troops. According to legend, the ghost of George II is still hanging around the Palace, moaning "Why won't they come?" over and over again.

Princess Sophia, Queen Victoria's aunt, is also believed to haunt Kensington Palace after she died there in 1848 following 11 years of blindness. A talented seamstress, staff have reported hearing the sound of her spinning wheel more than 150 years after her death.
According to Royal biographer Andrew Morton: "Princess Margaret's housekeeper told her she saw a woman in Regency dress suddenly appear in front of her, then vanish through a wall."
