Hatfield House / The Royal Palace of Hatfield

The Tudor palace at Hatfield was built approximately in 1485 by Cardinal John Morton, the Bishop of Ely. The Bishop became the Archbishop of Canterbury under King Henry VII.

Henry VIII acquired the Palace of Hatfield from the Bishop in 1538. King Henry used it for his three children, Prince Edward, Princess Mary, and Princess Elizabeth.

In the reign of King James I of England, Robert Cecil, 1st Earl of Salisbury, built Hatfield House in Hertfordshire.

Queen Elizabeth I held her first Council meeting in Hatfield's Great Hall (Banqueting Hall).

An Ard Ri, Thank you for the photograph of Hatfield House.
The English architecture is superb.

Hatfield House contains two portraits of Elizabeth I.
The first portrait is the Ermine Portrait painted by Nicholas Hilliard. An ermine is portrayed with the Queen.

The second portrait of Queen Elizabeth I at Hatfield House is the Rainbow Portrait. Elizabeth is shown wearing a gown embroidered with English wildflowers. She is also holding a rainbow.

Is this the original palace of Elizabeth's childhood or was it rebuilt? I read somewhere that it was the latter, with just a small part of the original structure existing, and the Cecils owned it.

Baroness of Brooks, The present Hatfield House was built in 1611.
An earlier building was the Royal Palace of Hatfield.
The original Royal Palace of Hatfield would have been the childhood residence of Princess Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth I).

Thanks for sharing these photos and information, CyrilVladisla and An Ard Ri. I've recently become interested in the Tudor Palaces, it's a pity that most of them were destroyed or lost. I didn't realize that it belongs to the Cecil (Marquess of Sailsbury) family, I've always thought that it belonged to the Crown.

Of all the royal residences, I've always been intrigued by Hatfield House since that's where the young Elizabeth spent her childhood and much of her formative years. Thank you for all the photos and links.

The Grand Staircase of Hatfield House was fitted with dog gates to prevent animals going up.

I would never get away with that here. Our Dawg is King and tells us what's up around here.

It really is an amazing place and I'd love to be able to tour it.
