Ms Thornton said: “Why is it called an apartment?”
Mr Warwick replied: “All of these royal residences at Kensington Palace are called apartments which of course makes people immediately think they are flats like the American term for an apartment meaning it is a flat.
“They are not. If you think of Kensington Place in a way it is built around three courtyards.
“If you kind of think of them as being these wonderful red brick terrace houses if you like.
Ms Seward explained: “Harry felt Kensington Palace was a prison.
“He was saying that Kate can’t even walk her dog in Kensington Gardens like Diana used to go jogging.
“She can only walk it around the sort of private field.
“He said it is definitely a prison and he was desperate to get out.”
