The Queen's Private sitting Room.

Here are two photo's of the Queen's private sitting room in BP.
The first one is from 1914,when is was Queen Mary's sitting room, the second from Queen Victoria's reign.
This is the bow room on the north side of the palace.

Apologies if this is in the wrong place

I visited Buckingham Palace yesterday and it was amazing. It still feels rather surreal that I was there but if anyone is umming and ahhing about going, it is well worth it. I suppose my only complaint was that we couldn't take photos inside but the main things I definitely want to remember can be found online. Already planning our visit for next year as I want to see the diamond collection.

The individual exhibitions were absolutely fantastic.

We had assumed that we were going to be pretty much pushed around at a fast pace but got no sense of that (apart from perhaps in the Faberge exhibition) and could easily have spent longer there.

I was in London yesterday and made a detour to go past Buckingham Palace as I had never seen it in real life before. (I know, and I call myself a Royal fan?) The palace is beautiful, but you know what I was very shocked by? How small the balcony looks...When you see the entire family on it, many extended members also, on it for Trooping the Colour it looks HUGE...but in real life it looks so much smaller. My friends and I were all very shocked. I also noticed the different initials of some of the Monarchs who had lived there, noting V.R on one of the entrance pillars. What an amazing piece of history. I really wanted to visit inside but obviously that comes at a cost and I did not have time to do so. Maybe next time...

What I did notice were a lot of cars parked in the grounds, do they belong to staff members? I can't imagine they belong to the members of the family who have offices there, but I could be wrong. There was some "expensive" cars there.

Thx so much once I saw that there was a video on you tube about Buckingham palace I watched it right away and I love how I get to learn a little history of the palace, and on the channel they have holyrood house and Windsor castle and I love the series I totally recommend this to anyone wanting to see these places and learn their history

Wait I just wonder with so many royals and the palace having a history I wonder if like the white house if Buckingham palace is haunted because I am sure royals were born here but also died.

Edward VII was born and died in BP. He is the only monarch that I can find that died there - Victoria died at Osborne and Georges V and VI at Sandringham. In face Edward so far is the only monarch actually born there - George V was born at Marlborough House, Edward VIII was born at White Lodge, Richmond Park, George VI at York Cottage at Sandringham and the present Queen at 7 1Bruton St in Mayfair. Charles, was also born at BP.

Of course others have been born there and presumably some of the staff etc have died there but interestingly only one monarch and no consorts.

I saw that article; in some ways, it's rather shocking. In other ways, not really. Forested areas generally aren't "walked" frequently unless it's part of a harvesting and benchmarking exercise.

Still....wow. A lonely death.

Where do the Royals and their staff park their cars at Buckingham Palace? The Royal Mews?

Buckingham Palace 'could be turned into museum when Prince Charles becomes king' - Telegraph

The Prince of Wales is considering uprooting the Royal family from Buckingham Palace and turning it into a museum when he becomes king, a new book claims.
