Cue Kate, Carole Middleton, and a few hand-picked interior designers who have waved their magic wands over the two royal residences with the help of a handful of favorite shops. We've rounded up 11 stores Kate has visited where you, too, can shop if you want to furnish your home like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
