Prince Louis' Kensington Palace nursery 'haunted' by spooky ghost of 'wild boy'

3 mins read

Prince Louis’ former nursery at Kensington Palace is said to be haunted by a ghost known as ‘Peter the Wild Boy’. Earlier this year the Prince and Princess of Wales moved out of Apartment 1A of Kensington Palace and moved to Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor Estate with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

However, the Wales’ former central London home has been the site of much alleged supernatural activity over the years.

During the 1970s Princess Margaret’s housekeeper claimed that she saw a woman in regency style clothing in the apartment.

She also claimed that on a separate occasion she and the butler were woken up by screaming when they were the only people in the building.

‘Peter the Wild Boy’ who it is claimed haunts the nursery was brought over from Hanover by King George I.

The monarch was fascinated by this boy who lived in the woods, walked on all fours and was unable to speak.

It is now believed that the boy was suffering from a very rare form of Pitt Hopkins syndrome.

Peter arrived in Britain in 1726 and the then Prince of Wales took a great deal of interest in his welfare.

However attempts to teach him to learn to speak or write failed.

“Why won’t they come?” he moans.

Originally a Jacobean mansion the palace was built in the then village of Kensington in 1605 and became a home for Stuart and Georgian monarchs.
