Kensington Palace was built in the seventeenth century in the middle of Kensington Park as Nottingham House as the residence of the Earl of Nottingham.
It was sold to the royal family in 1689 and used as an alternative to London’s royal palaces.
Recently restored, inside there is the permanent exhibition with the collections of Queen Victoria while a small exhibition space is dedicated to Princess Diana.
Kensington Palace was the residence of Queen Victoria, Princess Diana and Princess Margaret.
It was the official residence of William and Catherine (Kate) until the birth of their first child George. At Charlotte’s birth, the Dukes of Cambridge moved to Anmer Hall.
