    Morton stated that it's believed that the ghosts of King George II, Caroline of Brunswick, and Princess Sophia all hang around the palace. He noted, "Princess Margaret's housekeeper told her she saw a woman in Regency dress suddenly appear in front of her then vanish through a wall ... I don't believe any exorcism has been carried out, so let's hope little Prince George can sleep peacefully in his cot at night."

  • One source close to the royal family doesn't think William and Kate are worried about the newest prince. 

    "Royal children are traditionally brought up in what has become known as the ‘haunted nursery’ as a matter of ingrained tradition," the insider explained, according to Radar. "Kate and William have not spotted anything spooky there yet, and until they do, the room will continued to be used as a nursery for the newborns."

    They added of the spirits, "They aren't that fussed at the moment because apparently the ghosts don’t just haunt the nursery ... They have been seen and heard all over Kensington Palace."

  • One person who may be staying far away from the nursery is Prince Charles's wife, Camilla Parker Bowles.

    The Duchess of Cornwall admitted that she was fearful of ghosts in Charles's Scottish home in Dumfries, and even refused to visit the place until it had been renovated. She explained in the recent ITV documentary The Real Camilla, "It had a really eerie feel about it. There was definitely a ghost. Without a shadow of a doubt. I remember the first time I walked up the steps, got into the hall and I thought I can't go any further. I literally froze. If my hair could stand on end, it would have done. I remember leaving and thinking I don’t want to come back here again and I didn't for a few years."

    It sounds spooky, but considering that George and Charlotte occupied the same space in 2013 and 2015, we're going to assume that Will and Kate aren't too worried.
