A trip to IKEA always seems like a good idea at the weekend, doesn't it?

That is, until you have a child whacking a Billy bookcase flatpack into your shin, an existential crisis in the kitchen department, the juice of a Swedish meatball spilt down your front, and you realised your order includes a £300 Färlöv chair you didn't need but oh so wanted.

However, you can take a deep sigh of relief as Kate Middleton and Prince William have revealed that they too know the trials, tribulations and family arguments that come with a flatpack delivery.

During a visit to Sweden's national centre for architecture yesterday afternoon, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joked around as they tested pieces of furniture.

The pair took turns in sitting in the exhibit's most peculiar and artistically-designed chairs before admitting IKEA furniture can be found in Prince George and Princess Charlotte's bedrooms at Kensington Palace.

Ikea's head of design Marcus Engman said they told him 'they have Ikea pieces for the children's rooms'.

The pair also were aid to have shown an interest in home furnishings and how the design process works at Ikea.

Mr Engman said: 'I'm proud that we can suit everybody. That's what we want Ikea to be - for the many people of the world, both royalty and ordinary people.'

He added they began by offering their condolences on the death of the firm's founder Ingvar Kamprad who died at the weekend aged 91.

Earlier in the day, Kate and William enjoyed a game of bandy hockey before getting with the Swedish royal family and politicians at a black-tie event.

Is anyone else unable to get a picture of Kate and William arguing over a lost screw out of their minds?
