The laburnum is absolutely gorgeous!
The yellow flowers of laburnum are responsible for the poetic name "golden chain tree".

Hampton Court was a favourite British residence of William III and Mary II, King and Queen of England, Scotland and Ireland, Prince and Princess of Orange. No wonder this residence is often used when it is about British-Dutch encounters.

In 1982 Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau used Hampton Court to organize a grand banquet. On this picture a group portrait is made in front of a gobelin hanging in the Baroque Palace, the extension build by William & Mary. On the picture you see:
- HRH Prince Claus
- HM Queen Elizabeth
- HM Queen Elizabeth II
- HM Queen Beatrix
- HRH Prince Philip

Seven years later Hampton Court was again used, now for a concert by the Bands of the Irish Guards and the Scots Guards. Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus were guests of honour. The youngest generation was invited too. On this picture you see:
- Prince William
- Prince Harry
- Prince Charles
- Queen Beatrix
- Prince Claus
- Princess Margaret

The brickwork of Hampton Court Palace was generally painted.
The heraldic carvings that crowned gables, turrets and cappings held ephemeral vanes and banners.

The turrets flanking the gatehouse in the Tudor West Front at Hampton Court hold roundels with the heads of Roman emperors.
