At Queen Victoria's behest, the State Rooms of Kensington Palace were opened to the public in 1899, on her 80th birthday. Since then it's been both a private residence for the royal family and a public museum. In fact, it's where Prince William lives with the Duchess of Cambridge and their two kids. Though you won't bump into them in the hallway, a visit here is still a fascinating window into the lives of royals past and present.
The staff were very pleasant and welcoming and the way they organised the viewing of the exhibition in small groups was very much appreciated.
get to see some of her iconic outfits, however rest of the palace exhibitions seemed thrown together with little authenticity
