There is an interesting note about the palace as well, that ties into the present royal family.

Although the architect of the East Front (the principal facade facing the Mall) was Edward Blore, the actual builder of the wing was Thomas Cubitt.

Thomas Cubitt was a leading master builder in London in the 19th century, and was also responsible for the development of Bloomsbury, Belgravia and Eaton Square in London, and for Osborne House in the Isle of Wight.

He was successful enough to build and personally fund a kilometer of the Thames Embankment as well.

He and his wife Mary Anne Warner were the parents of George Cubitt, who was created 1st Baron Ashcombe in 1892.

Thomas Cubitt and his son George are the direct ancestors of HRH The Duchess of Cornwall.

Is this the Ballroom?

I'm just asking cause when you compare it to the full shot view of the Ballroom is looks a bit different

Also has there ever been a proper shot of the Ball Supper Room?

Yes! Thats the Ballroom. But the photo shows how it looked during Queen Victoria's reign. Queen Mary gave BP a massive make-over in the 30's and your photo shows how the Ballroom was made over.
I've seen a photo of the Ball Supper room, but for the life of me I can't remember where.

Thank you! If you find the photo will you post it?

Also this full shot though looks weird when you compare it to the other 2 I posted though. Maybe it's just the opposite side cause on my first 2 you can see a small balcony and with this one you can only see the 2 chairs

Victorian Interiors of Buckingham Palace.

This is the balcony room in QV's time.
It was then known as the Tapestry room. It is flanked on either side by guests suits. this room was used by Empress Eugenie as her drawing room when she visited the palace in 1855 with Napoleon lll.
At the time this photograph was taken the tapestries were a century old.

This is how the balcony room was remodeled by Queen Mary after the First World War.

This is the room that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge emerged from to the Balcony for their first kiss....

I was surprised to see that!

I had read that plans called for the dress to be displayed at Hampton Court, because the Royal School of Needlework is there and they did so much work on the dress.

Where please, is this arched window and mini balcony, at Buckingham Palace? I cannot find this window on the east facade.
Taken 2011 Trooping of the Colour, and caption says Kate watching William ride out for the ceremony.

It's not at Buckingham Palace. I believe that photo was taken at Horse Guards during the review of the troops.

I did not realise what impeccable taste Queen Mary had, although of course I am familiar with some of her collections and the famous "doll house". She was a magnificent Queen Consort and she obviously had an artistic side to her as well. Brava, Queen Mary!

Many royals have lived and visited Buckingham palace but where can I read about the palace ghost stories at Buckingham it has seen some deaths, births, engagements and marriages so I'm sure it has some history of possible ghosts as well as Hampton court and possibly Kensington .
