Here is a staircase in Buckingham House in 1819. I am wondering if this staircase was kept when Buckingham House was reconstructed as Buckingham Palace.

I seem to recall seeing somewhere that it was but I couldn't say where or even if that's correct. It's beautiful, though!

The present grand staircase has the same dimensions as the one in old Buckingham House. The only difference is that a further flight of stairs was added leading to the East Gallery & thence to Victoria's new ballroom. These stairs start & ascend behind where the artist of this picture would have been standing.

The decoration was by Louis Laguerre but destroyed during Nash's alterations.

Very good thanks Cyril. Do you know if any area has been finished yet? Modernising bedrooms and bathrooms will be a huge improvement. The 1950s was such a long time ago in styling.
I imagine the corridors will essentially look the same when the art work and objects are returned.

I wasn’t sure where to put this - but changing of the guards at BP has been suspended.

Inside Buckingham Palace,seeing as there's very little happening on the royal front and you can now take virtual tours from your home.

Looks like they’ll be doing some serious gardening at BP.

Such a shame to lose such large established trees including some planted by Victoria and Albert, but undoubtedly necessary.

It's fortunate that they are found now and delt with while the gardens are not in as much regular use. The long term plan will be attractive.

Interesting article in the mail for once! The London plane tree is wonderful.

I'm sure HM wouldn't want a tree to fall on her guests. Not sure how the palace would explain that one away.

It is a shame though when any tree has to be cut down. It may also impact the screening around the palace garden now there are so many hideous tall buildings in the vicinity. The rot started with the Park Lane Hilton in 1963!

I will now correct myself. The rot started earlier.

In fact Queen Victoria had complained about the height of a block of flats called Queen Anne's Mansions way back in the 1870's. This & other complaints led to the first building height regulations in London.

Thanks for posting. Some of the floor plans I haven't seen before. It includes a picture of the White Drawing Room at Windsor for some reason as well as referencing a black & white photo of GVI & QE as being in their private rooms when in fact it's the Blue Drawing Room at BP.

Indeed. Good to see the usual high standards of editing are being maintained!

It always made me wonder why the original palace didn't have a chapel to start with. Still, it was commissioned by George IV who probably wasn't the most observant of church goers. Did Carlton House have a chapel I wonder?

I'm not 100% sure but the chapels at St James and Queen's chapel were quite close to Carlton House.
