London Places: Kensington Palace

Victoria in front of Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace is famous for being the home of Princess Diana.

And of course it's the new London home of Wills, Kate & baby Prince George.

Kensington Palace & Gardens

It also has an epic garden. Oh, & it was the birthplace of Queen Victoria.

Jenny & I got to visit last year. It was one of my favourite things we did while we were bashing around London.

We kept our eyes open for Kate & Lupo while we were there, but they must have been in Wales that day.

It was typical drizzly grey London weather, but check out those flowers.

Early Spring at Kensington Palace

While we were at Kensington Palace there was a special display about Queen Victoria, which walked through her whole life.

Love affair with Albert, throne by age 18, nine kids, years of grief & seclusion, England's beloved monarch, etcetera. It was awesome.

Kensington Palace also has a few of Princess Diana's dresses. And Princess Diana wallpaper, naturally.

And here's the gate where everyone laid flowers & cards back in 1997 when Diana died.

I'd say Kensington Palace is totally worth the cost of admission.

And not a bad London home for Prince George.

  1. How is it that I never went here?


  2. I went to Keningston Palace in 2011... visited when the "Enchanted Palace" exhibit was showing... loved it. CHeck out: images on Google for Kensington Palace - Enchanted Palace...
    Also... the gardens and grounds are lovely. Hope you saw Diana's memorial.
    Very special place.

    1. They really do put on such fab exhibits at Kensington. xx

  3. I lived just up the street from Kensington Gardens near the Queensway and Bayswater tube stops (one street over actually). I never went inside, but boy did I love hopping across the street and strolling outside on a nice day! :)

  4. It was pouring the day I visited this past August so I enjoyed seeing your beautiful photos!

  5. Kensington Palace is one of my favorite spots in London. It was one of the first places that I visited. Lovely photographs! Thank you so much for linking up with #CheersMadame! xoxo
