    While it should be rightfully included in any list of royal residences of the world’s royal monarchies Sandringham House is not and never has been a palace. It is the private residence of the monarch first owned by Queen Victoria (not in its present form) and occupied by her son the then Prince of Wales later Edward VII and has been passed down through the family not the monarchy from him to his son George V and then to his grandson George VI and currently to his great grandaughter Queen Elizabeth the II.
