You know, I never knew what the old Private Chapel of Buckingham Palace looked like, until now-

It was a beautiful place.

Thanks for the images. Now I am consumed with curiosity about how bright/light this room actually was. The watercolors make it look like a glorious light filled room of joy. The Getty pic, though decidedly ancient (relatively) looks gloomy to me. Old photos were tricky. Hmmm.

The watercolor is gorgeous.

Yeah, the watercolors look magnificent. Make me think that’s what the Chapel once looked like in the early reign of Queen Victoria-

Here’s a painting of what part of the chapel probably looked like in color later on- Scroll to bottom:

Buckingham Palace is set to see its biggest ever removal of priceless antiques and artwork as 3,000 @RCT artefacts are shipped out during a 369 million, ten year reservicing project. There have been no breakages so far, though, they assure me!

3,000 metres of potentially dangerous cable has already been removed as part of the refit, which palace officials insist won’t go over the their 369 million budget.

I’m also told the Queen won’t be asked to move out of her North Wing apartment at #BuckinghamPalace until 2025 - when she will be 99 - in order for the building works to be completed. But aides tell me she is very adaptable and told them: ‘Just tell me where you want me to go’.

Amusingly, Prince Philip, 97, who has taken a great interest in the refurbishment of Buckingham Palace, has told officials in charge of the work that he is in favour of a phased approach ‘as they will learn by their mistakes’. Ever practical is The Duke!

Not sure The Queen and Prince Philip will live long enough to see the finished results, but it’s nice that the media is optimistic about when the couple will have to move out. It’s really going to be finished for the next reign. I hope I’ll be around to see how it’ll all come together.

The Wessexes and Andrew will need accommodations else where during construction. There is also a large staff in residence. I dont see bunk beds being an option.

Anne, Andrew, Edward et al will be housed down the road at St James Palace. Apparently Anne has made the move already.

So, someone who has been there or knows enough about stately homes...

Those wood floors they are opening up - what are they? White oak? Maple? I could guess easily here in the states, but not so much across the pond. Thanks for any likely suspect speculation.

The Royal Canadian Regiment has been deemed fit to take up The Queen's Guard after passing a touch inspection. The @Householddiv wishes its Commonwealth comrades well with the famous public duties! @VernStokes @canadianUK #changingtheguard

How awesome is this!! Is it up on YouTube as well Rudolph? Haven't seen anything of it in my subscriptions when I checked earlier, which is odd, as Veterans Affairs usually does when any of our Armed Forces take over Changing of the Guard at BP.

I'll have to mention this to friends of ours. Their son served in the RCR for about five years. Then when Afghanistan happened, he did one Tour over there & knew he couldn't go back. He also knew if he stayed in, he would be, so when the time came to choose, he left the Army.

He's been battling severe PTSD ever since & doesn't want to talk about w/anyone. Not even the WWII & Korean Veterans in our Area who came to the house to try to help. He turned them away.

Sigh...His Mom tried so hard to get down to Toronto for the Invictus Games last year & I thought about him a few times as well when attending events & talking to the Veterans. It would have really helped him I think, as they're pretty much all the same age/Generation & shared many of the same experiences as well. It's just so sad, but I know myself...You need to want help before taking it. Until then, you do what you can.

Such as letting his Mom know about this. Whenever anything big or special happens that has to w/the RCR, she wants to know about it. She's trying to keep track of stuff like this for hopefully the day he wants to acknowledge it. If not, then for his little girl one day.

So on her behalf, Thank You for the head's up Rudolph!!

The Christmas Trees have arrived at Buckingham Palace. Watch as the Marble Hall transforms for the festive season.

Love the Christmas tress and what a great free way to advertise the decorations from the Palace gift shop!
